Ljubljana, 13 December - The VEČER: THE TRIUMPH OF FORCE - The world has apparently given way to the onslaught of brute force and judged that peace in the Balkans can only be secured by at least partially satisfying Serbia's territorial appetites, wrote Slavko Vizovišek in the editorial of this Maribor daily. This opinion is apparently shared even by de Cuellar, or how else can we understand the demand that Germany must not grant Slovenia and Croatia international recognition, as, according to Cyrus Vance's evaluation of the position, the recognition of these two republics could cause the war to spread to Bosnia-Herzegovina and Macedonia. The United Nations, it seems, have yielded to the Serbian threat that it will occupy both remaining republics of former Yugoslavia if Slovenia and Croatia are granted recognition. Thus, instead of a clear-cut condemnation of the attacker, the U.N. have backed down and the way is open for history to repeat itself again, as, just as the Munich Accord failed to stop Hitler, the proposals put forward in New York, if accepted, have no chance of stopping Milošević.
