Delo: The Disappointed Lord

Ljubljana, 24 July - If somebody is present, like Lord Carrington, at the signing of 39 ceasefire agreements which hold for only a few minutes, then it is not difficult to believe that he might be fed up with it. But this is not only the statement of a disappointed person, it is rather the general attitude held by mediators towards the wars on the territory of former Yugoslavia, states Darijan Košir in the Theme of the Day column in the morning edition of Delo.
The author stresses that Lord Carrington is right in maintaining that the clashes will stop only when the Serbs are sure that they have conquered enough land, or when the Moslems are too weak to defend themselves. Only a casual glance at the map of occupied areas is enough to establish that the war in Croatia and Bosnia and Herzegovina has already ended and that only the concluding operations are taking place. Thus the conditions for a ceasefire, just like the one at the end of the war in Croatia at New Year, will soon be "fulfilled".
