PRESS REVIEW FROM SLOVENIA, Ljubljana, March 4, 1992

Ljubljana, 4 March - DELO: BOSNIAN ROULETTE - The occupation of Sarajevo demonstrated two things, i.e. that Serbs have achieved what they sought to, and that Karadžić, Izetbegović and Boban continue to control their paramilitary organizations. The fact that road blocks in Sarajevo have been removed does not signal that trust and love have unexpectedly prevailed over in relations between Serbs, Moslems and Croats, but indicates that all sides have realized that unnecessary shedding of blood will not bring them more than the black day and night in Sarajevo have already brought along. The present lull, therefore, will most probably not last long. Anarchy, hostility and terrorism continue threatening Bosnia and Herzegovina, but the experience of Sarajevo nevertheless gives hope that despite more than a hundred thousand fingers ready to pull the trigger not every fool will be able to trigger off an ethnic and religious war, writes Vili Einspieler. Bosnia and Herzegovina will become a scene of foul deals, and a miniature Yugoslavia will never be what it was yesterday. Ethnic partition of BiH within the existing borders has become a political reality, and Izetbegović could presrve the AVNOJ borders only through a larger international pressure or the fall of Milošević's and Tuđman's totalitarian regimes, adds the commentator.
