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.
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
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."
News reports often have re
ferred to Serbian war crimes
against the Bosnians as an "ethnic
Mestrovic said, "The media
calls this an 'ethnic cleansing,' but
it's genocide."
Genocide is a violation of U.N.
"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
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
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.
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
"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
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
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
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
"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
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

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.
