    Aye aye whats going on here then?
     
  2. its so that in about a year from now (when Iraq is in total civil war), the repukes can say 'see! its the UNs fault'
     
  3. I have a feeling that the note about Somalia is incorrect. I understood that the UN and US worked alongside each other and as per, the Spams were not under any sort of UN control which wasa major factor in what happened there were no comms etc between the US and the UN.

    Correct.

    Spams don't like ceding control of their forces. If it wasn't for us in Iraq then our Gen in AFG wouldn't have control of all those lovely air assets etc.
