Considering their track record, I don't think this is such a good idea. UNITED NATIONS (Reuters)-The European Union and the United Nations are considering sending troops and police to protect Darfur refugees and other homeless people in neighboring Chad, a senior U.N. official said on Friday.
Stressing that talks were still in the preliminary stage, Jean-Marie Guehenno, the undersecretary-general in charge of peacekeeping, told reporters that the United Nations was studying a U.N. Security Council resolution for Chad.
This would authorize a European military force and a "multidimensional U.N. mission with a strong police component to address the security situation...in the refugee camps and the internally displaced people," he said. I just hope Chad has enough bribe money on hand and the refugees don't mind having sex with guys wearing blue hemets.
