I saw two bears
Author: Linda Polman
In this book, Linda Polman describes how the super powers misuse the United nations and the harsh consequences of this for the soldiers on UN peace missions. In Kibeho, Ruanda, she witnesses an horrific massacre of thousands of people, and in Somalia she takes us for an extensive walk through the 'biggest UN fiasco ever'. They stand and watch the consequences of policy failures: UN soldiers from numerous countries, but also a hole array of international aid agencies that follows the blue helmets where-ever they go. From Mogadishu, via Port-au-Prince to Kibeho: Polman questions this 'UN failure'. Are the intentions always sincere? Or is the UN expected to fail?
