The chairwoman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee has denounced the so-called Non-Aligned Movement, with Iran as it current secretary-general, as an "alliance of extremists, flagrant human-rights abuses and purveyors of hate."
Mr. Boljkovac is the first major official from Tito's regime to be tried for human rights abuses after the violent breakup of Yugoslavia. In 1945, Tito's victorious Partisan army erected a totalitarian police state. The half-Croatian, half-Slovene dictator was an ideological Marxist, who sought to wipe out his opponents, such as nationalist Serbs, Slovenes and Albanians.
Croatia is at a crossroads. The former Yugoslav republic is on the verge of entering the European Union. Accession talks have begun, and many Croatians hope the nation will join the EU by next year.
It is inaccurate to portray the recent election in Serbia as a choice between "fervent nationalist and anti-Western" hostility to the European Union, supposedly represented by former Prime Minister Vojislav Kostunica and Radical Party leader Tomislav Nikolic, and a "progressive," pro-Western course in the person of President Boris Tadic ("Serbia's mighty challenge," Editorial, May 16).
The column "A name to reckon with" (Commentary, May 4) suggests the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (FYROM) is a small, innocent country being bullied by Greece. Not so - Greece largely sustains FYROM's economy by virtue of being the largest investor and providing almost 26,000 jobs.
