Hmmmmm.. Not so sure about that one !
The U.N. peace keeping forces are normally 'Tigers without Teeth'.
Point in question. An elder cousin, (a 21 year army man), was stationed in Cyprus when the Turks invaded the North of the island. At the time, he was patrolling, fully armed for the British Army.
All of a sudden, he was issued with a blue beret, and told to hand in ALL his weapons, EXPECT his side arm, (army issue automatic pistol). This, he was told, was strictly for his own protection, and was NOT to be used for any other offensive use.
Perhaps the U.N.peacekeepers berets should be white ??
