    There's NO peace there. Sooner or later this will need to be addressed before sending peace keepers there.

    1. First make the peace
    2. Then keep the peace

    I have no faith in these blue helmet clowns Ropey, if they are getting man handled by rag tag rebel groups from Darfur they might as well just pack up and go home, the UN peacekeepers are not a capable fighting force.

    It will be interesting to see which of his lieutenants takes over, and how well he does.

    Many member countries of Nato decline to enter the arena. All should leave imo. There's no peace to keep and they can't make it.

    Not there they can't.

    There are really only a handful of NATO or UN countries with a capable fighting force, the rest are useless. Not any more dangerous than the girl scouts imo.
