And ifr you think UN Peacekeeping missions are a mess

think what they can do with this bullcrap:
A special meeting of the United Nations security council is due to consider whether to expand its mission to keep the peace in an era of climate change.

Small island states, which could disappear beneath rising seas, are pushing the security council to intervene to combat the threat to their existence.

There has been talk, meanwhile, of a new environmental peacekeeping force – green helmets – which could step into conflicts caused by shrinking resources.
The UN can't keep the bad peacekeepers from stealing, extorting and running prostitution rings(not to mention not actually helping peace- ask Srebrenica); so just exactly what- other than giving itself even more power over other peoples lives- they intend to accomplish here?

Ah, some clues:
However, small island states in the Pacific, which face an existential threat due to climate change, have been pushing the council to act for years(bullshit, but they still push it).

"The security council should join the general assembly in recognising climate change as a threat to international peace and security. It is a threat as great as nuclear proliferation or global terrorism," Marcus Stephen, the president of Nauru, wrote in a piece in the New York Times.(AHA! So we need to ACT RIGHT NOW, even if we don't know what we're doing!)

"Second, a special representative on climate and security should be appointed. Third, we must assess whether the United Nations system is itself capable of responding to a crisis of this magnitude."
"We need someone in power! Right now! So if we decide we need someones' national treasury looted to pay us off for what we claim, they can do it."

The assholes in the UN are constantly trying to get more power over the world; it's past time that we should get out of that clusterfuck and let them die out.
