Maybe Clinton Should Draw A Line In The Snow
Regarding "Is it time for Clinton to get tough with Yeltsin?" (International Outlook, May 8), Boris Yeltsin and Russia would like to reestablish some form of the Soviet Union. The Russians feel that the West will not respond to their expansionist plans. Chechnya is a case in point. The next country to be taken over may be Ukraine. Russians may use as their excuse for invasion discrimination against the Russian minority in Ukraine. If Ukraine resists, will the West come to its aid? That is very unlikely. However, the lack of action on our part will cost us American lives some time in the future. We fail to learn from history.
