The U.N. is making plans to get its peacekeeping force out of Bosnia if U.N. member states vote to lift the arms embargo there, as is expected. War is almost certain to break out as soon as it's clear that the Bosnian Muslims will start getting weapons, says TIME's Central Europe bureau chief, James L. Graff. Any remaining U.N. soldiers are not likely to be spared the wrath of the Serbs, he adds. "It's a knee-jerk reaction to want to lift the arms embargo," says Graff. "It may mean justice for the Muslims, but it also means a nasty war." Meanwhile, Russia now wants trade sanctions against the Serb-dominated Yugoslavia lifted. That country, the Russians say, has done its bit to punish the Bosnian Serbs.
