DR Congo: Useless Bastards

                                 From DR Congo: Rape of a Nation by Robin Hammond 

A Sikh soldier from the Indian contingent of UN peacekeeping forces watches over the UN camp for internally displaced people in Rutshuru.

In my last blog I  blogged

" It is a subject for another blog by a more knowledgeable blogger on the UN than me but why on earth do we include in the participation in peace keeping missions some of what must be the most corrupt and useless armed forces in the world. (The cold war is over ). When a UN force hits the ground we want people to be confident that that force will protect them and we also want the rapists  and criminals hiding behind uniforms to know that they will face justice. Summary justice if necessary.  "

I have lost all faith in MONUSCO. This would be a joke if it wasn't so serious.
