    I'm not sure I understand your question; the answers seem too obvious to me. Without some sort of peacekeeping, anarchy and chaos would swiftly take over. Stronger men would kill and or dominate weaker men, warlords would stake out territories, women who think they're downtrodden now would think more clearly, etc.
    Think the movie, 'The Postman'.

    doesn't "peacekeeping" generally involve sending alot of men with guns into a region that already has alot of men with guns?

    They're actually armed with anti-blame throwers.

    I never understood the whole concept of peacekeeping. Doesn't peace have to already exist in order to keep it? And if there is peace, why would we need someone to keep it? I think we should just call them unintentially-started international dispute keepers.

    I think peacekeeping is a noble idea but like it has been pointed out already, it is rarely done correctly...

    Note in Somolia... Peace keepers could only fire if they were being fired upon..... Meaning that they can't do anything unless someone does something to them, so if the "bad guys" don't touch the Peacekeepers, and just kill the people they were killing in the first place, then its pretty F'ing pointless...

    Yes, but we have bigger guns that make the mean people with lesser guns hang their head in embarassment.

    I did work in Bosnia, though. There's been a tenuous peace there for almost 10 years since Canadian peacekeepers have been there. Of course, it's our specialty. :D

    But that just goes to show that it CAN work, if done properly given the conditions.
