Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I´d be very interested to hear something about your "international defense organization".

Mind you, I´m not saying anything at all about the article Mimi translated. I´m simply asking you about some information about your "international defense organization"?

Is it the UN?
The same organization that really failed in Bosnia?
Remember Srebenica and Tuzla? The UN is pretty good at peace keeping missions once both sides agree but its record is more than mixed if one side doesn´t agree.

Why do you think that the UN or any other international defense organization is suddenly more able to protect innocent people?

Any international organization is only as strong as its members permit. The UN got 190+ members. How many of them would agree to human rights interventions if the next target might be them? How maynof them are democracies? Not to mention China. A veto power in the UN security council. Only interested in economic relations (access to raw materials) while disregarding domestic political problems.

I just fail to see how your "international defense organization" is supposed to work?
