ddw in windsor Is anyone else as scared as I am? (104* d) RE: Is anyone else as scared as I am? 12 Apr 99

Hi everybody,

I've been away for a few days and was delighted when I came back to find such a stimulating thread on the go. Wish I'd been here earlier to stick in a point or two, but have found most of my thoughts echoed in previous postings from one person or another.

One thing I didn't find, however, is a question that's been bugging me from the git-go on this thing.

How would most 'Catters feel if a group from outside your area (Alistair, think of the French, U.S. 'Catters think of, say, Mexicans) and, after living there for a while without really being assimilated, decided they wanted to take a whole section of England/U.S. back into France/Mexico?

I'm still debating on the evil/opportunism of Milosevich, but I don't think it really matters in the long run. He used the age-old ploy of gaining political power by creating an enemy, pushing it (the KLA) to REALLY want out, and then pointing at it as a REALLY SERIOUS ENEMY. Sure way to win support, by unethical if not outright evil.

I have no solutions to all this, except to acknowledge that bombing without ground troops is never going to solve anything.



PS -- I'm scared too.
