Although much of the fighting was occurring in Bosnia, Zagreb was only 20 minutes from the front line. The front line is wher ever the Serbs have been stopped, he said. The potential for an at tack on Zagreb always existed, as well as the danger from rockets, he said. MILITARY POLICY The Serbian military policy is carefully orchestrated, Mestrovic explained. The Serbs will pound a city with artillery. Only then will they enter the city and round up the people. The men often are sent to camps, and the women are raped. The Serbs do this to instill terror in the people so they will leave the area and never come back, he said. Pejovich said war crimes are a part of any war. "Atrocities are being commit ted in this war, but atrocities are committed in all wars, especially civil wars," he said. "The Serbs in Bosnia and Croatia still remember how they were slaughtered by the Croats and Muslims during World War II." Dr. Alex Pacek, A&M assistant professor of political science said, "Their (Serbs') primary intention is to clear people out or certain ar eas and move Serbian people into these areas. This often entails massacres or driving people out as refugees." The refugees go to areas under Croatian rule and to areas under United Nations protection. Most often, the safest area is Croatia, where refugee camps are set up, Mestrovic said. A U.N. refugee office also is located in Zagreb. "The Serbs have no systematic policy on what to do with the refugees," Mestrovic said. "They clear them out and what happens to the refugees is not necessarily their problem." "ETHNIC CLEANSING" News reports often have re ferred to Serbian war crimes against the Bosnians as an "ethnic cleansing." Mestrovic said, "The media calls this an 'ethnic cleansing,' but it's genocide." Genocide is a violation of U.N. resolutions. "Unlike the siege of cities, 'eth nic cleansing' is not a legitimate way to conduct wars," Pejovich said. "Unfortunately, it is also a predictable consequence of many wars and most civil wars." The people of Bosnia are in a difficult position because the re gion is the most ethnically mixed. Bosnia is composed of 34 percent Serbs who live'in 67 percent of the territory. These Serbs want to join their motherland, Pejovich said. It is not possible for these Serbs to move to Serbia because they are farmers and are attached to the land. They will not leave their farms, he said. "The history of Serbia is a story about the people who have fought for centuries, often alone, for the right to live together," said Pe jovich. Any solution that ignores the Serbs'^ determination to live to gether only will impose greater costs on a greater number of peo ple over a longer period of time, he said. U.N. PRESENCE The U.N. Protection Force is lo cated in Bosnia and Croatia. Their main function is to help humani tarian aid convoys get through to recipients, mainly Muslims and Croats. However, the convoys have been continually harassed, mainly by Serbs, according to news reports. "I think the embargo on the sales of weapons is wrong. If they've gone berserk, let them fight until they're exhausted." -Dr. Steve Pejovich A&M professor Mestrovic said the United Na tions cannot solve the problems in Bosnia. "When I was there, Bosnians and Croatians felt the U.N. was on the side of Serbia. Many felt the U.N. was there to prevent the Bosnians from getting aid," Me strovic said. "The word for the U.N. was 'UNPROFOR.' Now it's 'SERBOFOR.'" The United Nations even broke its own trade embargo imposed on Serbia, Mestrovic said. During the U.N. Week of Tranquility for Children (Nov. 1-8), the United Nations shipped clothing to Mus lim children in Bosnia. A scandal broke out when it was discovered the clothing had been made in Serbia. The United Nations broke the trade embargo by paying hard currency to Serbia for the clothing which was refused by the Bosni ans. U.N. officials could have bought the clothing from any where else, Mestrovic said. "It was an insensitive act. It's equivalent to shipping aid from Berlin to Auschwitz," he said. "It was a huge scandal in the Balka ns." RAPES While in Croatia, Mestrovic also learned of the brutal rapes of Bosnian women by the Serbs. "A whole generation of women has been traumatized forever. I really don't know what happens to them," Mestrovic said. He interviewed some of the rape victims. Many of the women wno were raped and became pregnant walked away from their babies to let them die or suffocat ed them because it was their tor mentor's child. The women were stigmatized and rejected by their families. "There should be an outcry from feminist groups about this, instead we have Zoe Baird and nannygate/' Mestrovic said. "Humanitarian aid also means so cial workers and rape counsel ing." THE ROLE OF THE UNITED STATES While Mestrovic was in Croat ia, many of the people asked him if Americans saw all the destruc tion on television. He only could answer "yes," hut he could give no explanation to them for Ameri ca's inactiveness. "There is a lot of disillusion ment that America and Western Europe didn't help them," he said. "They looked up to the Americans and were very disap pointed by them." Pejovich said intervention is not the answer because any out side action will not have a long- lasting impact. "I believe that Serbs, Croats and Muslims should be left alone to seek borders based on their re spective balance of political and military skills," Pejovich said. "At this time, any solution imposed from outside will not produce (ex cept by chance) a long-run equi librium in the region." Mestrovic agrees with Jeane J. Kirkpatrick, former U.N. delegate, that it is time for unilateral U.S. action. He does not want to see ground troops enter the region, but he believes air strikes would work. The Serbs are not willing to take losses, Mestrovic said, and the Croatians and Bosnians should be given weapons to de fend themselves. This would en tail the lifting of the arms embar- PejSvfclt " relink the em bargo on th^sale of weapons is wrong. If they've gone berserk, let them fight until they're ex hausted. Then they will begin to negotiate." Mestrovic said there are other issues to consider. "We should help the Bosnians on humanitarian grounds," he said. "Some real crimes against humanity are occurring." Individuals should be allowed to help war victims, Pejovich said, but the U.S. government should not interfere. Pacek said the United States should put more pressure on Eu rope to take the initiative (in peace plans), increase humanitari an aid and get refugees out of the danger zone. "If you can't decide on a mili tary effort, make sure as many civilians are moved out of the danger zones as possible and giv en humanitarian aid," he said.
