I am very pleased to share my thoughts on the special relationship between Bosnia and Herzegovina and the state of Maryland. This relationship began in 2003 under the official auspices of the National Guard State Partnership Program with the Maryland National Guard and is now developing into a multidimensional, whole-of-government partnership supported by both the office of Gov. Martin O'Malley and the presidency of Bosnia and Herzegovina. On March 22-24 I will be heading an official delegation to Maryland for the upcoming U.S.-Balkans Business Summit at the University of Baltimore.

Yesterday in one sentence: Costa Rica did CONCACAF proud and Honduras tried, but France put on a performance against a fraudulent Swiss side that not many European sides have been capable of in Brazil. What's on tap: Argentina vs. Iran, 12 p.m., ESPN; Germany vs. Ghana, 3 p.m., ESPN; Nigeria vs. Bosnia and Herzegovina, 6 p.m.. What you'll see: The day's opener will feature Lionel Messi and the uber-talented Argentine side try to break down a group of Iranians that will park the bus in front of goal under Portuguese manager Carlos Queiroz.

Although Bosnia is the newest member of the United Nations, it has as great a right to live in peace as any of the original nations that gathered in San Francisco in 1945. Its dismemberment, its absorption by a more powerful neighbor, its "ethnic cleansing" would be an affront to humanity reminiscent of what happened to Czechoslovakia and Poland more than a half-century ago.Just as Kuwait had claims on the protections of the U.N. Charter after it was occupied by Iraq, so Bosnia deserves wholehearted support from the world organization as it struggles to preserve its territorial integrity and independence.

As Serbian forces close in on embattled Sarajevo, ethnic partitioning of Bosnia-Herzegovina appears more and more to be the only practical way to end the civil war. The partitioning may come under the political cover of a very weak confederal government structure -- this to satisfy the rhetorical pretensions of outside powers that dared not intervene -- but it will be partitioning nonetheless.The idea of Serbs, Croats and Muslins once again living in comparative harmony is sheer fantasy. The more realistic goal, elusive as it may be, is to end the bloodshed somehow, let the three warring tribes regroup in three ethnically cleansed enclaves, prevent another Serbian-Croatian war and take international action to prevent the spread of conflict elsewhere in the Balkans.

It is time to exempt the government of Bosnia from the United Nations arms embargo on Yugoslavia. One must resist the temptation to say Muslims of Bosnia, because the defenders of Sarajevo and the Bosnian state have always included ethnic Serbs and Croatians. Reginald Bartholomew, the Clinton administration's special envoy to the region, is already talking of arms for Bosnia.It is time to consider bombing Serbian artillery positions, particularly around Srebrenica and Sarajevo, which are slaughtering civilians.

Because of Bosnia, Yugoslavia was invented. To insure the death of Yugoslavia, Bosnia must be destroyed.To backtrack: Yugoslavs or most of them are one ethnicity if you go back far enough. Serbs, Croats and Bosnian Muslims speak one language. They use different alphabets and have different religions because for centuries they had different rulers and histories.There really was a Bosnia once, as much as there was a Slovenia or Croatia. There was a kingdom of Bosnia in the 12th century. In the 14th century it acquired Herzegovina to the south from Serbia, and the two have usually been united since.

With U.S. troops ashore in Somalia on a humanitarian missio that tugs at the world's heart, the unfolding tragedy in Bosnia becomes ever more poignant, more insistent, more urgent. For eight months -- mostly warm-weather months -- Bosnian Serbs with encouragement from Belgrade have unleashed a campaign "ethnic cleansing" against their Muslim neighbors that a series of United Nations resolutions has been powerless to stop. Now winter is setting in, and all too soon scenes of snow-bound suffering will provide vivid contrast to the searing deprivations of Somalia.

APART FROM humanitarian concern, President Clinton has profound stake in the horror of Bosnia. It is the world's belief in his will to use American power.Belief in American power has for many years been the most effective deterrent to international aggression. It is more crucial than ever in an increasingly chaotic world, a world with only one superpower.Credibility is undermined if petty tyrants treat the United States with contempt and get away with it. And that is exactly what Serbian leaders are doing in Bosnia: carrying out their policy of genocide with more and more open contempt for the United States and, specifically, for Mr. Clinton.

For Capt. Martin Noorsalu, deploying to Afghanistan with the Maryland National Guard last year was an unusual opportunity. Noorsalu is one of only a dozen helicopter pilots in the Estonian Air Force. The sole air defense service of the former Soviet republic numbers some 400 personnel. They fly four helicopters. But from September to December, Noorsalu and fellow Estonian Air Force Capt. Rene Kallis flew medical evacuation missions in Afghanistan with Maryland National Guard members in the 1st General Support Aviation Battalion of the 169th Aviation Regiment.

The report from the State Department was brief: Thomas M. Jennings Jr., a federal worker from Burtonsville on a temporary assignment with NATO peacekeepers, had died in a car crash in Southern Bosnia. Fifteen years later, it turns out that was only part of the story. Unknown to neighbors and friends, Jennings was working for the CIA, the agency acknowledged last week. A veteran covert officer — he told acquaintances he worked for the State Department — he volunteered to go to Sarajevo after the Bosnian war as a U.S.-led force worked to maintain peace.

TUZLA, Bosnia -- It begins with the translation of the doctor's introductory query: "How may I help you today?" What follows are the typical answers and explanations, and more questions. Not much different from a visit to the family physician - except the translator is a Serbian army officer, the patient is an elderly Muslim woman, and the doctor is an internist from Baltimore, a member of the Maryland Air National Guard who recognizes the patient's achy knees and back as the pain of arthritis.

"If the United States is going to be asked to undertake new responsibilities, for example, in Bosnia if there is a peace agreement there, then we need to have a time certain for a withdrawal of our forces from Somalia." The source of this extraordinary assertion is President Clinton himself. It illustrates the distracted way in which this administration undertakes and executes overseas commitments while Congress ducks and frets.The president's words notwithstanding, Senate leaders (presumably with Mr. Clinton's approval)

AFTER THE Bosnian Serbs took Prijedor in May and June of 1992, Muslim men were herded into camps, where up to 7,000 were executed by guards.Some of the 77 suspects indicted as war criminals by the U.N. Bosnian war crimes tribunal have been living openly in Bosnia. Now, British troops have arrested one accused of the Prijedor crimes and killed another who fired at them.The raid came after President Clinton demanded a more aggressive policy of arrests. It suggests that the world community may be serious about the 1948 United Nations Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide.

R. Nicholas Burns, undersecretary of state for political affairs, recently put Balkan issues back on the front burner when he pressured Bosnia's Serb, Muslim and Croat leaders to replace the country's three-person, multiethnic presidency with a single president. That step is needed, he said, to create a stronger, more cohesive state. He added that there should be a firm commitment to such reforms by the time Balkan leaders visit Washington this month to mark the 10th anniversary of the Dayton accords that ended the Bosnian civil war. Dayton, Mr. Burns intoned, has served its purpose and now needs to "evolve."

WASHINGTON - The London bombings and the anniversary of the massacre in Srebrenica, the Bosnian town where nearly 8,000 Muslim men and boys were slaughtered, were two seemingly unrelated stories that occurred within five days of each other this month. Though separated by 10 years and 1,000 miles, the two are actually rather closely linked. The war in Bosnia, particularly the arms embargo imposed on the Muslim population while the Serbs were massacring them, became the major turning point for the global Muslim consciousness.
