Charles Krauthammer explains that the real issue when it comes to multilateral peace-keeping in Iraq is not obtaining U.N. involvement, but ending U.N. obstruction. Countries such as India and Russia say they will contribute troops only if the U.N. passes a resolution explicitly authorizing the sending of peace-keepers. Such forces would be valuable, in Krauthammer’s view, because they could handle low level security assignments, while our forces hunt down the resistance. Thus, Krauthammer argues that it is time to lean hard on the U.N. by openly threatening to pull out of U.N. sponsored ventures in places like the Balkans unless the U.N. gets out of the way in Iraq.
