Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Oh without doubt it's hard. But the locals will always have numerical supremacy and if the local govt decides they're not welcome things could get messy.

Our modern military supremacy is very good at destroying cities but as we've found in Iraq, not so good at targetting militias hidden amongst populations. It's a more level playing field, the americans couldn't achieve anything in somalia because of that.

Peacekeeping means there has to be a peace to keep. We might as well suggest that NATO goes in to enforce the '67 border in Palestine, ain't gonna happen.
