Ljubljana, 4 February - DELO: EVERYBODY PLAYS HIS ROLE - Almost a third of occupied Croatia resembles a theater stage on which everybody, Zagreb, Belgrade, New York (U.N.) plays his role. At this point the focal issue is that, led by Dr. Babić, rebellious Serbs from the region where the war began in August 1990, are entering the arena and joining the three main actors. This may mean, Peter Potočnik writes, that we are at the beginning of the expected change, the point where Serbia forsakes the rebels after they had done their part. Babić and his team now feel confident enough o attack Belgrade with equal ferocity as they attacked Zagreb a year ago, because they are no longer afraid of the regular Serbian or former Yugoslav army, nor of Milošević, or the remnants of the federal government. They have thus become the mutual problem of Belgrade and Zagreb, which gives the latter greater possibilities of continuing the liberation war. Under such circumstances they are closer to war than to peace, since now only a liberation war can lead to long-lasting peace, especially because the implementation of the peace plan will give rise to passions on both sides. The Croatian military will be unwilling to stop at the front-line, while the Serbians will not be prepared to accept the fact that they fought for nothing. Any other rational solution to the Serbo-Croatian war will probably bear no results either, Peter Potočnik concludes.
