Wednesday, Feb. 21, 2007 The Kwajalein HourglassSarajevo had been a beautiful city. The Winter Olympics had been held there in 1984. The people of the city were renowned for their hospitality and the friendships they made with athletes and visitors from all over the world. Many people had very fond memories of that beautiful city and its people. A short eight years later, that wonderful city and its friendly people of Bosnian Muslims and Croats were locked in a ght for their lives when they were attacked by the Serbs in a civil war. Sarajevo was besieged by Serbian artillery, mortar and sniper re. For any city inhabitant to venture outside for any reason was to risk death from sniper re. Whole apartment buildings were blasted to rubble by artillery. Whole families sitting down for dinner were killed by the indiscriminate shelling. The city’s people were dying by the thousands, not just from the ghting but from lack of food and water. The city and the surrounding countryside endured the ghting for almost three and a half years during 1992 through 1995. At least 250,000 people were killed and two million displaced. Ethnic, religious and racial cleansing was rampant. In just one instance, the Serbs slaughtered 8,000 Bosnian men and boys in a genocidal killing near the town of The Kwajalein Hourglass is named for the insignia of the U.S. Army 7th Infantry Division, which liberated the island from the forces of Imperial Japan on Feb. 4, 1944.

L e t t e r s t o t h e e d i t o r Letters to the editor Leave other people’s bungies aloneThanks to James Bell for great dinnerBungy cords aren’t that expensive, but they are if you have to keep replacing them. I have even brought ones back from the states, but I just can’t keep them on my bike because some lazy and thoughtless individual has taken them. I get very annoyed when I can’t tie something on my bike because I don’t have my bungies. This is a respectful request to those who steal other people’s bungies to think of the inconvenience you cause someone else and stop doing it. Please by more thoughtful. — Sharon Kay This letter is to thank Chef James Bell for preparing a fantastic meal for unaccompanied folks on his night off. For those of us who eat at the same facility seven days a week, three meals a day, this was a wonderful treat. Thanks James, for sharing your talent and creativity with our tummies. — Amy Brouwer USAKA Person of the Week Laura PasquarellaSwain, with the help and support of the Caf Roi staff, organized a spectacular catered Valentine’s Day dinner at the Roi Namur Scuba Shack at sundown on February 14th.

The Serbian leader, Slobodan Milosevic, would take his place among the mass murderers of the world.During the war, the world stood by with much hand wringing and wondered what to do. The United States took the position that it was Europe’s problem and that Europe, meaning NATO, should handle it. But in 1995, after three years of the killing and genocide, President Bill Clinton decided he’d had enough of trying to get Europe to solve the problem. He de ed United Nations resolutions which called for non-intervention and staged American warplanes and troops to attack the Serbs. This action shamed NATO forces into joining the United States and on Aug. 30, 1995, a massive joint U.S. and NATO air strike was made on Serbian positions surrounding Sarajevo. The citizens of the city, which had lived a nightmare for so long, wept with joy when they saw NATO and American bombs destroying Serbian tanks, artillery, mortars and sniper positions on the hills overlooking their city. It was the biggest NATO operation in its history and the largest single bombing strike since World War II. Some western military analysts had predicted it would take one million soldiers and major casualties suffered to defeat the Serbs. The combined air strikes went on for two weeks. Faced with this relentless force and power, the Serbs quit and agreed to a peace settlement. The war and the genocide came to an end.American and NATO ground forces entered the country to enforce the peace. As per the rules of engagement they were under, they could re back if shot at. Furthermore, they could aggressively pursue, detain and if necessary kill anyone who tried to break the peace.The residents of the city and the country were thankful the war was over, but they kept asking—why did it take so long? They had suffered death and atrocities for three years and it all ended with just two weeks of NATO attacks on the Serbs. “What took so long?” In the year 2000, Milosevic was arrested and ordered to stand trial for war crimes. While awaiting trial, he spent ve years in prison before dying of a heart attack. One of the worst monsters and architects of atrocities in history had been stopped. But unfortunately, in the world’s history, there have been too many times when good people did nothing. One of the most shameful episodes was Rwanda in 1994 when an estimated 800,000 to one million of the Tutsi tribe were exterminated by Hutu militias. Despite intelligence and absolute proof of the massacres taking place, most rst-world countries refused to intervene or even speak out against it. Although there was a small United Nations force in Rwanda led by Canada, it was under orders not to engage in ghting or to use force to protect the victims. Their orders went so far as to forbid them from even discharging their weapons. They actually witnessed many of the killings and could do nothing to stop them. In fact, their numbers were so small, they themselves were in danger. The massacre of the Tutsis didn’t end until a Tutsi rebel force overthrew the Hutu government which in turn led to other wars in the region. Now, yet again, the world faces a choice. Darfur, a region in the Sudan, has been at war for three years. It is a war of genocide between Muslim Arab militias against black Muslims whose sin seems to be being black. These militias are backed by another of the most murderous men in history, Omar al-Bashir, the president of Sudan. Many groups around the world have been raising money to help the displaced survivors of the genocide who have ed to neighboring Chad where they face starvation and misery. The National Honor Society of Kwajalein High School has raised more than $2,600 for aid to Darfur. But more is needed. The students and teachers of Kwajalein High School know what kind of people they want to be. I admire them very much. If you would like to make a contribution, go to the Dollars for Darfur Website in the Kwajalein High School’s name. The deadline is April 21. But without force to ght force, humanitarian aid will only do so much. Money can help. But money won’t stop massacres. Right now, only an undermanned African Union force stands between victims and the militias. They are not enough. The U.N. has recently passed a resolution to deploy a peacekeeping force to the region. But resolutions don’t put boots on the ground. To help the people of Darfur, the U.N. must be pressured by the people of the world that any peacekeeping force must be large enough and have a clear mandate that they are to ght and use force to protect the people of Darfur against any aggressor. There is a big problem in deploying a U.N. Force though. The United States is engaged in Iraq and Afghanistan and NATO is heavily engaged in Afghanistan as well. Some other nations of the world might have to decide whether it’s their turn to step up to end the suffering.I commend our high school students and teachers for trying to make a difference. People can only be victims if they can’t ght back or if there in no one who will help to protect them.
