Death of U.N. peacekeepers

Nine Bangladeshi peacekeepers were killed in Ituri on Friday. Just north of the Kivus, Ituri is just a little bit more unstable. Bunia, a town in northeast Congo that has seen its share of massacres but which has been relatively quiet for the past couple of years, seems like it is teetering on the brink again. [The instability there is related to what's happening where I was but is something else again.]

For the conservatives who come down unfairly hard on the U.N., here are soldiers from a poor country dying in a poorer country, bravely as any American. Support the U.N., don't dismantle it.
