Serbia, acquitted last week of the charge of genocide, has been handed a unique opportunity. If Serbia was not complicit in the effort to exterminate Bosnian Muslims in the first half of the 1990s - as the International Court of Justice ruled Monday - Serbia should have no reason to keep on protecting the two Bosnian Serb leaders who did have genocide in mind: Ratko Mladic and Radovan Karadzic. If Serbia's hands are clean, it should turn these two men over to the international tribunal in The Hague.

WOMEN who have been raped will tell you that it often takes a long time to feel whole again. They will tell you how they took showers over and over, how they kept husbands and boyfriends at arm's length for months, how they circled the house as night fell, checking the locks and bolts.And some of them talk of feeling they've lost something. A woman who was raped told me once, "I feel like he opened this wound and I bleeded out my whole normal personality, like I was just a shell afterward."

PAZARIC, Bosnia-Herzegovina -- Old soldiers never die -- they simply become "consultants."Hunkered down in a bunker 25 miles west of Sarajevo, Col. Clark Welch -- late of the U.S. Army's Special Forces -- is plotting the downfall of the Bosnian Serb army. "Eight hundred hours tomorrow, we 'move to contact,' " cackles the ebullient Vietnam veteran to a group of staff officers gathered around a pin-riddled wall map. "They'd better be ready, 'cuz we're gonna kick the crap out of them."Fighting talk.

WASHINGTON -- Setting the stage for a Bosnian war-crimes trial in an American court, the Supreme Court refused yesterday to block damage lawsuits against the Bosnian Serb leader, Radovan Karadzic.Without comment, the court left intact a federal appeals court ruling that clears the way for thousands of Bosnian Muslims and Croats to pursue their claims in a U.S. district court in New York City."It is safe to say that we are seeking hundreds of millions of dollars" from Karadzic, said Beth Stephens, a Rutgers University law professor who is handling one of the two cases.

Israel Radio announced their arrival by playing the song "Stranger In Paradise."

GRANTED, the accused spy this time was out of the FBI, not the CIA. But two cases only a month apart of suspected turncoats within the intelligence community are bound to make the Senate more sensitive than ever about President Clinton's choice of national security adviser Anthony Lake to be director of central intelligence.Republican senators are upset that Mr. Lake did not tell them about the administration's 1994 decision to give a green light to the supply of Iranian weapons to the Bosnian Muslims.

SARAJEVO -- As every child here knows, voting in Bosnia and Herzegovina is scheduled to take place September 14 because it is part of an electoral agenda -- President Clinton's electoral agenda.The Bosnian elections, even if they're unfree and unfair, are to serve as this administration's foreign-policy triumph. So, although none of the requisite conditions for a fair ballot -- freedom of movement, freedom of expression, freedom of association, a politically neutral environment -- has been met, U.S. diplomat Robert Frowick, who heads the Bosnian mission of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe, which is overseeing the elections, is pressing forward with the vote.

LUKAVAC, Bosnia-Herzegovina -- In the morning they run nine miles in formation, sounding off like U.S. Marines."Allahu Akbar!" they cry, "Glory to God." In cadence, they shout short, inspirational verse from the Koran, the holy book of Islam. Some days, the imam visits, talking of martyrdom for the jihad.Such is a soldier's life in the Bosnian army's 9th Muslim Liberation Brigade, a strict, secretive unit of home-grownmujahedeen, encamped about 10 miles from U.S. Army headquarters at the Tuzla air base.

Visceral satisfaction is the one undeniable result, at least in Western circles, after NATO retaliated massively to the Bosnian Serb shelling of a Sarajevo marketplace that left 37 dead. As air assaults were continuing against Serb military positions, President Clinton termed the largest operation in alliance history an "appropriate" response to another Serb atrocity and indicated his belief it would not interfere with U.S. peace initiatives.Therein lies the test of this nervously timed initiative.

"At this point allowing the Bosnians to fight back seems to me to be the best hope of eventually stopping Serb expansionist drives. . . As a practical matter I do not see any other way of stopping Serb expansionism unless someone tries physically to stop it. Who is going to try to stop it?"So declaimed Democratic Sen. Carl Levin, of Minnesota, as he gave his support July 26 to an arm-the-Muslims resolution that, in Defense Secretary William J. Perry's opinion, could create a "nightmare scenario" in the former Yugoslavia.
