all women police forces - the future of peacekeeping?

Tomorrow the first ever all women police force will arrive in Liberia. The war there ended in 2003 so obviously they aren't being put into a terribly dangerous - though undoubtedly still volatile - situation.

Will this type of force reinvigorate the resolution of post-conflict situations particularly in the light of the reports in recent years about UN forces being a vehicle for the spread of HIV/AIDS and corruption generally?
 
That country's doomed then........
On the subject of poontang, liked the Japanese politician refering to women as baby making machines, never get away with that in pc Britain.
Seriously though, fair enough if they are tooled up and doing the biz from a distance but in the case of hand to hand etc. women will never be a viable option (unless they are policing women).
Why the hell would anyone want an all chick force anyway, what's the point?
Seriously...

Would hate to see what the charge for not carrying a handbag in Liberia will become?

Like all things too much can be bad for people; the ONLY way to go is a mixed force - one male, one female, one gay, one lesbian, one disabled, one lightly coloured, one darkly coloured,.........hang on there'll be no room left for any prisoners in the van! Oh well!

Possibly yes; once they've got their periods synchronised.

The FPU, which will be better armed than a regular unit, will provide general support to UN police activities in Liberia, including protecting UN officials and civilian police as they perform their duties, plus also acting as a rapid reaction force for crowd control and helping train local police officers, the world body said.
So it's just one unit among many UN and local police in Liberia.
