Lord Ashdown's warning about the future of Bosnia and Herzegovina � which was intended to rouse Europe's capitals from their "comfortable slumber" � certainly dampened the optimism that accompanied last week's arrest of Radovan Karadzic.
However, in attributing the problems facing Bosnia and Herzegovina to the actions of Bosnia's Serbs, Lord Ashdown overlooked � intentionally or not � several broader issues that continue to undermine the state's viability. From the fiscal frailty of one of Bosnia and Herzegovina's two entities, the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina, to persistent discord amongst Bosnia's Croats, the country is beset by a number of other structural vulnerabilties that cannot be blamed on the country's Serbs. The weakness of the international community does not lie in its approach towards the other entity, Republika Srpska, as Lord Ashdown tacitly asserts. Instead, it stems from the failure to tackle the Federation's current instability and the rhetoric calling for the dissolution of Republika Srpska which, like any talk of secession, violates the terms of the Dayton Peace Agreement.
