THE CROATIAN forces of Vukovar are withdrawn, the federal army has won its show of force. There are the victors and the vanquished, there are the innocent victims. It is the lowest point reached by Europe in the post-1989 era.Looking further at the reasons and the wrongs of the single parties, if there is a need for a date or a symbol to signal an alarm if not a brusque turn of history, this date is Nov. 18 and this symbol is Vukovar.It is the day in which the impotence of diplomacy has triumphed.

VUKOVAR, Yugoslavia -- The old man clutched any visitor. "I don't know where is my son," he said. "They have taken him off the bus along with the others. But he was not a soldier, he did not fight." Stjepan Matic seemed not to comprehend where or who he was. His wife cried, "I want my son back."The Matics, like thousands of others, have been physically and psychologically pulled apart in the three-month orgy of Serb-Croat fighting in Vukovar that ended with the town's surrender last week.

RIP VIP! This Congress can derail anything except a Bush veto. The U.S. position is perfectly clear. We demand independence for the Baltic republics. We demand all the other ones stay in the Soviet Union. All roads from Vukovar are mined. All Yugoslavia is. Baltimore city and county are going to share senatorial districts even if they don't share the same universe.

ILOK, Yugoslavia -- A convoy of French doctors accompanied by European Community monitors managed yesterday to enter Vukovar, the town Croatians are calling their Stalingrad.But it was a small -- and imperfect -- victory in a spreading war.Although Croatian forces and the Serb-led federal army had agreed to a two-day truce to give the convoy safe passage, it came under fire as it was leaving the besieged town.One vehicle reportedly struck a mine, and two French nurses were hurt.About 60 of the most seriously injured patients had been loaded into ambulances, but dozens more remained in a Vukovar field hospital.

BELGRADE, Yugoslavia -- This country's warring factions greeted their latest cease-fire with a hail of bullets yesterday, when federal warplanes bombed five Croatian towns and clashes intensified for control of the devastated city of Vukovar.The 13th truce declared in nearly five months of fighting between Serbs and Croats went into effect at 6 p.m., after darkness and rain already had quelled the battles that raged throughout Croatia during the day.The cease-fire arranged between federal and Croatian negotiators, who have limited control over the combatants, was intended as a starting point in meeting U.N. conditions for deployment of a peacekeeping force in Yugoslavia.

THE HAGUE, Netherlands -- The European Community's two-month effort to bring peace to Yugoslavia all but collapsed yesterday as warring republics failed to agree on a formula for splitting up the country and hostilities raged between Serbia and Croatia.Lord Carrington, the British diplomat who is chairman of the EC Yugoslav peace conference, said he would urge the community to adjourn the conference indefinitely Friday if Serbia and Croatia did not abide by a new cease-fire. It would be the 11th under EC auspices.
