When the UN gets seriously involved in something the results are usually depressing.In Sudan they are tragic as well-
So the UN set out to work. The Lou Nuer tribe was targeted for disarmament first, but the SPLA pillaged the tribe’s cattle in the process, while neglecting its need for security against its tribal rivals. The Lou Nuer tribe formed its own army and attacked the SPLA. It was eventually defeated, at the cost of over 2,000 lives.
  ................................... incompetent, corrupt, or criminal administration, with an equally malign army, is being cheered on by the UN as it tries to carry out a process of civilian disarmament

More tragedy awaits-
the UN, pleased with how well its approach has worked in southern Sudan, is eager to take its act worldwide
