Response: Half Right

The Editors

COMRADE HAMELL IS half right. We make no call on the United States or other western imperialist states to “arm Bosnia,” knowing full well that they don’t even want Bosnia to win.

We do not propose, however, that the arming of Bosnia should depend on the international workers’ movement, which has no capacity to do so. We demand the end of the embargo so that the republic of Bosnia can buy, borrow, beg or steal weapons from any available governmental or non-governmental source.
