A world horrified at Khmer Rouge murders in Cambodia must not tolerate deportation, murder and torture in Bosnia. Institutions that broker peace in the Middle East should not shirk responsibility for what was Yugoslavia. Nations that rolled Iraqi aggression back from Kuwait cannot acquiesce to the unilateral creation of Greater Serbia out of other people's hides and land.There are three concerns for the international community in the wars of former Yugoslavia: humanitarian decency, resolution of disputes and the nullification of aggression.

In the wake of Russia's increasingly belligerent behavior in Ukraine, President Barack Obama delivered a ringing declaration of NATO's support for the Baltic countries Wednesday in the capital of Estonia, a former Soviet Republic and current NATO member that also has reason to fear Russian aggression. Mr. Obama vowed the U.S. and NATO would honor the alliance's pledge of collective defense and back it up with a beefed-up troop presence and air patrols. He also pointed to NATO's decision to create a rapid reaction force and pre-positioning of military equipment in the region as evidence of the alliance's resolve to defend its members.

Washington. -- It's been a long time coming, but at last an organized counterattack is being mounted against one of the most insidious offenses in our society: aromatic aggression, or the unrestrained wafting of supposedly pleasing scents.Law has historically enshrined the principle that freedom to swing one's fist ends where another person's nose begins. But when it comes to assault by smell, there are no bounds. Many magazines now reek like a harem, while rush-hour office elevators are filled with a miasma of intrusive scents.

When Caleb Joseph received a throw as Chicago White Sox shortstop Alexei Ramirez headed toward him in the top of the eighth, the Orioles catcher said he had two things on his mind: tag Ramirez out, and don't break baseball's new home-plate collision rules. Instead, Ramirez dodged Joseph's tentative effort at a tag, scoring safely as the White Sox took a three-run lead and held on to win, 4-2, on Tuesday night at Camden Yards . Rule 7.13, implemented by Major League Baseball before the season, forbids catchers from blocking the path of the runner until he has possession of the ball.

PEOPLE WHO ARE fond of me think of me as assertive, while people who are not, do not. They think I am a . . . well . . . a word that rhymes with witch.I am neither the "a" word or the "b" word, according to Dr. Toni Bernay, a psychologist and executive director of the Leadership Equation Institute, an executive development firm in California.I am a euphemism."Assertiveness is in the dictionary, but there is no assertiveness in the psyche," says Dr. Bernay, who is working on a new book about women in the workplace.

WASHINGTON -- Scientists have identified a tiny genetic defect that appears to predispose some men toward aggression, impulsiveness and violence, a discovery that is likely to rekindle the harsh debate over the causes of criminal and abnormal behavior.Researchers emphasized, however, that the finding was thus far limited to a single large family, and that the inherited illness was likely to be quite rare in the general population.Nevertheless, scientists said the discovery counts as a persuasive advance for human behavioral genetics, a field that lately has been in disarray as previous announcements of genes for manic-depression, schiH1 and alcoholism either have been disproved or come under withering criticism.

Washington -- When the crisis escalated earlier this year, outside observers -- less than intimately familiar with the Yugoslav problem -- could plausibly argue that a contributing factor to war country was Slovenia's and Croatia's decision for independence. The State Department termed the action ''unilateral,'' hence unfit for American support.Even then that notion did not withstand a thorough test; the country edged toward a bloody abyss not because two nations decided to leave a squabbling family, but because the communist masters who were will in charge did not want to admit their historic defeat.

Spotted hyena cubs are exposed to such high levels of the male hormone androgen in the womb that they are born fighting, and in many cases one newborn cub will actually kill its twin, say researchers at the University of California, Berkeley.The discovery provides strong new evidence of the link between male hormones and aggression, the researchers report in today's issue of the journal Science.Females of the species, which is the most common large predator in sub-Saharan Africa, usually give birth to twins, and when both twins are the same sex, one immediately tries to kill the other, the researchers said.

PRAGUE, Czechoslovakia -- On the first anniversary of the revolution here that ended five decades of oppression without a shot being fired, President Bush appealed yesterday to Czechoslovakians to stand with him in threatening war to stop Iraqi aggression in the Persian Gulf.Warmly welcomed by a throng of more than 100,000 in Prague's St. Wenceslas Square, Mr. Bush argued that Czechoslovakia's history of abuse at the hands of Nazis and Communists was a lesson and that the country's future as a prosperous nation was at stake.

It's easy enough to look back at the way the Orioles have scored runs the past few weeks and conclude that their once-feared offensive attack has been in crisis, but the problem is a little more complicated than that. What they really have been suffering from is an identity crisis. There has been the occasional short-term flareup, like the middle-inning fireworks display that carried them to victory Tuesday night in Pittsburgh, but the hitters who ravaged American League pitching last year with a major league-leading 212 home runs are still living in 2013 while a variety of negative factors have conspired to change - at least temporarily - the nature of their lineup.

BOSTON - Since his last start a week ago, Orioles right-hander Ubaldo Jimenez has made several visits to the team's video room, trying to figure out why he's struggled in his first three starts as an Oriole. A day after allowing five runs on 10 hits over 5 1/3 innings against the Toronto Blue Jays last Sunday, Jimenez broke down video of his performance with Orioles pitching coach Dave Wallace and bullpen coach Dom Chiti. Leading up to his start tonight against the Boston Red Sox, they've continued to examine his delivery.

There was a time when Thomas DeNapoli was reluctant to shoot the ball. As a freshman on the Towson men's lacrosse team, DeNapoli took just 11 shots, scoring four times. The following year, he attempted 42 shots and scored 15 goals. "My first couple years here at Towson, I definitely wasn't as aggressive as I've been the last two years," recalled DeNapoli, now a senior. "Coming in as a younger guy, you don't want to step on any of the seniors' or juniors' toes. It kind of felt that way in my first couple of years.

The seizure of the Crimea region of southern Ukraine by Russian troops over the weekend has created the most serious crisis in Europe since Moscow's 2008 incursion into Georgia, which led to the effective dismemberment and annexation of parts of that former Soviet republic. President Barack Obama was right to warn Russian president Vladimir Putin that his country will pay a price for attempting a similar territorial grab in Ukraine, but in order to make that threat credible he must use all the diplomatic tools at his disposal to convince America's European allies to speak with one voice in condemning Russia's dangerous military adventurism and flagrant violation of international norms while avoiding an escalation of the crisis that could lead to armed conflict.

NEW YORK - For parents struggling to juggle work and child raising, the news compounded their daily dilemmas: A comprehensive study found that children who spend many hours in day care are more likely be aggressive and defiant. But a researcher involved in the study, and other child-care experts, urged parents yesterday not to overreact. They suggested the best response would be a nationwide push for improved child-care options. Some parents said they don't have the luxury of changing their lives anyway, regardless of what the experts say. Child care is their only option if they want to make ends meet.

WASHINGTON - Congressional Democrats rejoiced at the close Florida Supreme Court decision that breathed new life into Vice President Al Gore's hope for the White House, saying it would allow for an accurate vote count in the bitterly contested state. Republican lawmakers sharply criticized the 4-3 decision, one of them terming it "judicial aggression" that was designed to "manipulate a free and fair election." Others expressed concern about whether a "subjective" hand count of ballots - with "dimpled" and "pregnant" chads - could accurately determine the next president of the United States.

Due to the single-elimination nature of the NCAA men's soccer tournament, many teams find themselves playing a conservative style that may offer fewer rewards but also reduces the risk of going home prematurely. Case in point: five of Thursday's 16 first-round games went to penalty kick shootouts, and two more were decided in overtime. That could be a testament to the narrow gap in talent level between teams in the postseason, but UMBC coach Pete Caringi Jr. said he wants to make sure that timidity is not part of the game plan when the No. 16 seed Retrievers (16-1-2)

If you think that numbers don't lie, you might want to look at the stat sheet and try to figure out how the Orioles lineup can be so good on paper and look so bad in clutch situations. It's right there in black and white. The Orioles entered Tuesday night's game against the Tampa Bay Rays ranked third in the major leagues in both batting average and slugging percentage with runners in scoring position, but lately they've been on top of the world in frustrating their fans by making the least of promising scoring opportunities.
