WASHINGTON - The assassination of Serbian Prime Minister Zoran Djindjic bore the marks of a political vendetta and a well-organized conspiracy. Even though the people who ordered his assassination Wednesday have not been identified, his enemies are widely known: the high officials in the military and security services during the blood-spattered rule of the former dictator Slobodan Milosevic. Mr. Djindjic has incurred their hatred for having organized the overthrow of the Milosevic regime and then sent him to The Hague to face war crimes charges.

Slobodan Milosevic's re-election as president of Serbia was vote for ethnic cleansing of Muslims in Bosnia, for rape and torture, for starvation and murder, for announcing a hundred cease-fires and disregarding every one.In all probability it was also a vote for ethnic cleansing of the majority Albanians from Kosovo Province. That could turn into a vote for a Balkan war, in which Albania would go to ethnic Albanians' rescue and Turkey to Albania's, and in which Mr. Milosevic would hope for aid from Greece and Russia as religious and historic allies.

WASHINGTON -- Serbian Prime Minister Vojislav Kostunica has let the nationalist genie out of the bottle and may be unable to put it back anytime soon. This will have serious repercussions for Serbia's relations with the European Union and the United States, Montenegro's independence referendum, the future status of Kosovo and cooperation with The Hague war crimes tribunal. By providing Slobodan Milosevic with a state funeral in all but name, Mr. Kostunica disgraced Serbia and demonstrated his commitment to preserving Mr. Milosevic's legacy and interpretation of history.

WASHINGTON -- Two months after the popular uprising that forced dictator Slobodan Milosevic out of power in Serbia, a mood of uncertainty prevails. Posters put up by the student group Otpor (Resistance) capture the unease. Underneath a picture of a giant bulldozer, symbol of the revolution, is a warning to new Yugoslav President Vojislav Kostunica and his entourage: "We are still watching." Will these new leaders, is the message's subtext, prove corrupt like the Milosevic regime? Or incompetent?

WASHINGTON -- The end of Slobodan Milosevic's 13-year rule dragged on for six months with all the elements of a Balkan farce. The man who no longer was president lived in the presidential mansion while the new president continued to reside in his two-bedroom apartment in downtown Belgrade. The new president, Vojislav Kostunica, was not informed when the Serbian police finally moved to arrest his predecessor. In fact, an army unit under Mr. Kostunica's control, blocked the first police attempt to serve an arrest warrant.

BELGRADE, Yugoslavia -- Packers began moving into ambassadors' residences in the up-market Belgrade suburb of Dedinje this week. And with them came a realization in Serbia's establishment that the first steps of international isolation were under way.In and of itself, the gesture of withdrawing the ambassadors of the European Community states, the United States and several other countries may not force Serbia to retreat from the bloodletting it is assisting...

As Iranians continue to protest their lack of voice, Western publics, commentators and policymakers express growing sympathy with the demands for free and fair elections. Yet the romance and tragedy of these events should not blind us to the fact that electoral protests of this type seldom produce democratization. Research I conducted with graduate student Katya Kalandadze, soon to be published in Comparative Political Studies, shows that "electoral revolutions" similar to the one in Iran have occurred with some frequency worldwide since 1991 as authoritarian regimes have sought legitimacy by giving greater scope to elections - while avoiding full democracy.

This week's Security Council vote to strengthen sanctions against Serbia and Montenegro represents the latest diplomatic step toward ensuring that the Yugoslav disaster grows worse and spreads further.If the sanctions are intended to weaken the regime of Serbian leader Slobodan Milosevic, they are counterproductive. It should have been obvious to those who fought the Cold War that international isolation is the best friend of tyrants. The sanctions amount to a new Iron Curtain, cutting off support for the progressive forces in Serbia.

Belgrade.--A visitor to Serbia would be forgiven for believing there is no war in the region and no United Nations sanctions. The restaurants are full. Tourist agencies advertise cheap holidays in Africa and Australia. People stroll down Belgrade's Prince Michael Street in balmy winter weather in fashions that would not look out of place on Paris's Champs Elysees.But the atmosphere of normalcy has an edge of the surreal. It has been carefully contrived by the government of Serbian strongman Slobodan Milosevic prior to new elections scheduled for Dec. 20. Using government television as his personal propaganda machine, he has managed to mask a reality of economic chaos, rising unemployment and encroaching war.This week, one man began a crusade to rip away the mask: Milan Panic, the Serb-born American millionaire who has served as prime minister of the rump Yugoslavia since July.
