    I don't think the UN has any business having an army.

    The peacekeepers are a great idea. Although they may have an unfortunate tendency to exploit the locals, they have a pretty decent success rate in keeping stability. They are a much more appealing option than spending 10 years and thousands of lives trying to fight an insurgency. U.S. policy would better served by using overwhelming conventional force for an initial victory, and then handing it over to the U.N. to deal with the aftermath.
    As far as beings the UN's "army", peacekeepers remain part of the host nation military and have no combat power to speak of anyway.

    I think they should paint a bullseye on their helmets. Or maybe a picture of a bobo doll.

    I think my approach may accomplish that.
