So the German Bundeswehr hid under their bunks during a race riot in a sector they were in charge of, eh?

Well, that's fitting: The entire Dutch government resigned almost *ten years* after their soldiers allowed a massacre of 6,000+ civilians by the Serbs in 1995.

As political humorist P.J. O'Rourke once wrote, the UN's 'Blau Helmets' dress up in nursery colors and are too chicken to shoot back.

American soldiers, on the other hand, are accused of beating the crap out of the hostile combatants we've captured -- and that's just our tiny female soldiers I'm talking about.

I'll let the readers decide for themselves which is more outrageous, but given the choice between the two I'd prefer to stick with the winners and suffer the repercussions.

If I was a Christian in the Balkans I would fear for my life if Americans protected me. I rather have Serbs protect me.

My memory on that is hazy, so I invite correction.

Didn't the UN/Dutch troops actually serve as "traffic cops" in making sure the
victims-to-be were loaded onto busses in a calm and efficient manner?

I'm not trying to add to the shame of the event...but my recollection was the Dutch (UN)
troops knew they were under a threat, so they assisted in the deed...unwittingly assisting
as the loaders of the trains to Aushwitz would have done.
