Those powder blue helmets strike the fear of God in any fighting man.
They were pretty active and effective in Croatia back in the 90’s.
That’s been a while.
They also farted around in Africa for whatever good that did.
Um, no. No they were not.
UN in Croatia and the word effective don't go together
Did you follow the chain of events when a British Commander named Rose (I believe?) came on the scene?
All he did was sit on his ass while people did their thing till they were tired and then put political pressure on the left overs. His defense of his tour there was that he remained neutral and challenged zero force. His belief was that "peace keepers are neutral" - well you can be neutral at home if you're not actually doing anything. It literally was sitting around and waiting.
The situation in Bosna improved in spite of Rose, not because of him.
And that has little to nothing to do with Croatia. Croatia kicked off the conflict between the 2 countries by taking over the border checkpoints but then that was it. The war inside Bosna between Bosnian Croats, Bosnian Serbs and Bosniaks was something separate and what Rose was focused on. IMO.
