Seems the biggest issue with the UN (there are many) is a lack of will or authority to intervene. What good is it to spend money and other resources if the UN Soldiers are merely going to watch? Take their useless arms away and hand out cameras instead. At least there would be some sort of record of these tragic events. I wonder how hard it is to just sit there, gun in hand, and watch civilians being raped and murdered in front of you. I realize that there is often a bigger picture to think about, but wow.
