Peacekeeping Versus Fighting Terrorism
The UN Dispatch reports that the world organization is looking to join the peakeeping efforts in Somalia and that America should do more to help.
If the UN deploys to Somalia, it would join Southern Sudan and Ethiopia/Eritrea as the third peacekeeping mission in the Horn of Africa. Indeed, the Horn is seemingly becoming a new loci for peacekeeping operations in Africa. ...
And here at UN Dispatch, we frequently fret that possible overstretch of UN peacekeeping might encumber the development of these prospective missions; the demand for UN peacekeeping is threatening to surpass the financial and military resources necessary to launch new missions. This is why domestic support for UN peacekeeping here in the United States is so important.
The US is uninvolved in Somalia. Who knew?
