The UN is a joke. Without the US they would have folded decades ago.
I am not so sure the UN is worthless; I mean if we did not keep those useless egos and bureaucrats of powder blue occupied they might actually attempt to run real nations.
We call those Blue Helmets "Pacifist Blue".
The UN stops nothing but peace from having a chance.
They're in it for the money....and most of it comes from the United States.
By the way....the UN is at the root of this Global Warming hoax.
I agree with SFC Ollie. The UN is about as worthless as tits on a boar hog. It's an organization that is 95% political correctness and 5% crap; i.e., just enough to smell. The biggest majority of it's members are all scam artists just interested in seeing how much money they can steal and get away with. The UN building should be torn down and that land made into a playground. Then it's "soil" would have a purpose.
A dog walking park would be more to it's correct usage.
I actually worked with the UN in Bosnia, not for the UN, I was NATO.
Joint Task Force Provide Promise.
We would coordinate food and humanitarian drops or ground logistics, the UN was supposed to protect and distribute it, but if any poxy Serb para military unit fronted up with two men or more they just sat there and let them take it.
Now, I will say I don’t blame the guys wearing those powder blue helmets, most were brave and they wanted to do something, but the UN bureaucracy and the Security Council put them there under conditions that meant they simply had to sit back and watch ethnic cleansing and call it peace.
We came under attack one night in Mogadishu in 93' and a UN tank column was flanking the technicals that were attacking us.
I assumed they were looking to get in behind them and lay waste to them....but instead they kept driving off into whatever hole they felt safe in.
Nope...we tried to train them while we were there but they were worthless.
Were they Pakistanis?
You really never know which side they are on?
Or were they Canadians, more concerned with their superior beer nights than the mission at hand?
The Pakistanis got a bunch of APCs that we had requested and we had to train them how to fire 50 cals. They refused to fire them full-auto. They only would fire them one round at a time.
The Canadians were too few. We liked them. The French were just troublemakers. The Germans didn't even carry weapons. The Austrialians had their shit together but almost all of them were way up North.
So we were left with a bunch of scared Pakistanis and Bangladeshis. And we were the only force in country with zero armor....as per Clinton's directives.
