Indeed, if due to, above all, American efforts the civil and religious war in the former Bosnia-Hercegovina has ended, why was the arms embargo suspended at this time? It is clear that the arms will be needed for the new killing and new battles. Anyway, there is more than enough arms in the former Yugoslav republics (Bosnia-Hercegovina, Croatia, Slovenia). Actually, the embargo on arms imports to these republics, in which the secession and the war had been started, has never existed. Warmongers in Croatia, Bosnia-Hercegovina (and earlier in Slovenia) have imported (and still do) enormous amounts of destructive murder weapons. The former East German war reserves have been emptied without "mercy" and transported to Croatia and Bosnia-Hercegovina; these weapons were paid by the huge amounts of money and economic concessions.
Muslims and Croats are armed to their teeth, as was obvious during the four year war in Bosnia-Hercegovina and Croatia. Well armed military formations were built from a handful of terrorists; that is why the world diplomatic and political circles are even more surprised that the Security Council swallowed another American bait.
This decision of the UN Security Council can only be taken as a new threat to the Serbs, Serbia and FR Yugoslavia. Cynics say that the USA wants to allow the Serbs to arm themselves in this way.
If we consider that the peace in the former Bosnia-Hercegovina will be secured by as many as 60,000 NATO soldiers, one can only imagine the amount of weapons which will be present in the territories of the former (and present) Yugoslavia which were, until yesterday, engulfed in a war.
For example, according to the foreign military publications, Muslim-Croat alliance has 265,000 soldiers, with the ability to mobilize another 280,000 soldiers. Republic of Croatia, the HVO and the Muslim part of Bosnia-Hercegovina are included in this estimate.
The mentioned alliance has 650 tanks, 400 armored vehicles, 1,300 artillery pieces, and 50 airplanes and helicopters. Croatia also has 50,000 active police and 40,000 reserve police troops. Therefore, all together, the Croatian-Muslim alliance has more than 600,000 soldiers!
All that is still less than the military potential of FR Yugoslavia, but certainly cannot be underestimated. On the contrary! Foreign journal "Military Balance" which is, by the way, the leader among the publications which register the amounts of means for destruction around the world, in one of its analyses claims that the gradual suspension of the arms embargo against the former Yugoslav republics can only be interpreted as an American attempt to discipline the Serbs. In the same journal, we can find that, allegedly, the suspension of economic sanctions against FR Yugoslavia was conditioned by the suspension of the arms embargo against Croatia and Bosnia-Hercegovina.
How is that future and, supposedly, united Bosnia-Hercegovina, going to realize its right to import weapons and whether a part of that hellish cake will fall on the Serb side, we don't know.
If it turns out that only the Muslim-Croatian side will be able to import weapons, it doesn't bide well for the Serb people under the common Bosnian roof.
Besides all those means for destruction, it is even hard to imagine what will the peace which was achieved in Dayton look like.
