    Hmm. Two ways to lookk at this...

    1) It is when the dictator is used to deliver that "peace."

    2) Depends on the situation. "Upholding" peace where peace is barely threatened is a waste. Perhaps you should deploy troops to Switzerland to "uphold" the peace. The problem here is that your militaries don't know how to wage a war and this is why they look for ways to hang back out of the fight. They are better suited to small engagements with a gurantee that little matters either way (like Somalia) or that they wil lbe protected by America's more capable force. Seeking ways to deploy in a manner that your military is little more than a peace corps doesn't actually contribute to peace.

    You are the only one with troops in developed peaceful nations. The peacetroops Europe have is mostly in volatile but now peaceful areas of Africa which would otherwise most likely become unpeaceful if they weren't there.

    You certainly underestimate peacekeeping GySgt. Thats a shame, its the most important part of "war".
    Europe is illegally occupied by the US

    Are you referring to our embassies around the globe to ensure security in key areas? Or maybe referring to protecting western Europe while sitting in peaceful Germany for forty years? Or are you referring to the peaceful nations of Iraq, Afganistan, Haiti, Somailia, Bosnia, etc.?

    Our permanent embassies (with a small detail of 15 or 30 Marines in most) do what your deployed troops do without the presence factor in the streets. We also deploy to do what a military traditionally does in Bosnia, Afghanistan, and Iraq. Our troops have the ability to shift from feeding the hungry to attacking those who interfere with that mission in places like Somalia.

    The truth is that American troops are active in every type of situation these days and we do it without hoping "big brother" will do the mass of the work or blame "big brother" for not being there to alleviate responsibility.
