Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Found this one interesting:

    BBC News - UN combat force to target DR Congo rebels

    For decades the complaint has been that "peacekeeping" does no such thing and that it can only really be effective if the ROE allows for more than just personal protection. However, does that not then mean that the role has the potential to go beyond using armed force to prevent escalation to outright war?

    Is this a sign of a change of approach? In this specific case, is it likely to do some good or will it be a case of rueing the law of unintended consequences?
  2. It might be a change of approach but the way the report is worded we shouldn't be expecting a change in result any time soon.
