Ahmed discusses the existence of "ethnic cleansing" vs. Western assertions that ethnic hatreds largely have been overcome. In two essays, Richard Johnson shows the hypocrisy in the U.S. State Department's reaction to the genocide in Bosnia and demonstrates how the West has begun to appease Russian expansionism. Columnist Georgie Anne Geyer furthers this theme by exposing ways the White House, the UN secretary-general, and others pretend to follow the UN Charter while appeasing genocidal aggression. Keith Doubt reveals how the West attempts to "save face" and "give face" to Slobodan Milosevic. Slaven Letica shows the lionization of war criminals in the West. Brad K. Blitz finds Western universities to be duplicitous in their response to a moral crisis. Albert Wohlstetter unveils the real Boris Yeltsin and the motives behind Russian foreign policy. Chandler Rosenberger exposes the false innocence of Serbian mythology. Finally, Stephen W. Walker and Marshall Freeman Harris, who resigned from the State Department in protest over the Clinton administration's handling of Bosnia, dissect the moral facade of the U.S. peace plan."
