Illinois: ​Cook County Commissioner Richard Boykin is in talks with UN officials to explore the possibility of putting UN troops on the streets of Chicago to address the city’s gun-violence.  Boykin says that UN ‘peacekeeper​s’​, would be more suited to patrolling the streets than the US National Guard because they are better “trained” for the role. ​[That means they are more likely to obey orders to shoot Americans.] ​Earlier this year, President Trump suggested deploying the National Guard in troubled areas of Chicago, but his idea was fiercely opposed by Democrats. ​-GEG​

Cook County Commissioner Richard Boykin is in talks with United Nations officials to explore the possibility of putting UN troops on the streets of Chicago to address the city’s horrendous gun violence problem.

Boykin flew to New York last week to meet with UN assistant secretary-general for peacebuilding support, Oscar Fernandez-Taranco to discuss the issue.

“The United Nations has a track record of protecting minority populations,” Boykin said before the meeting. “There was tribal warfare between the Tutsis and the Hutus in Africa, and they deployed peacekeeping troops there to help save those populations and reduce the bloodshed. We have to do something — black people in Chicago make up 30 percent of the population but 80 percent of those who are killed by gun violence.”

Boykin said that UN peacekeepers would be more suited to patrolling the streets than the U.S. National Guard because they are better “trained” for the role.

Mayor Rahm Emanuel did not directly address any potential role for the United Nations in Chicago when asked by reporters.

The idea of deploying UN peacekeepers on U.S. soil is likely to rile many on the right who have warned about international forces conducting gun confiscation operations domestically for decades.

Earlier this year, President Trump suggested deploying the National Guard in troubled areas of Chicago, but his idea was fiercely opposed by Democrats.

Well, you can’t use the military in a law enforcement role unless martial law is declared. Oh, I got it! Let’s just bring in blue helmeted FOREIGN TROOPS to keep the peace. Nothing wrong with that idea, except that it is stupid. So Chicago’s elite is “stuck on stupid” in the words of Army hero and architect of fixing the Katrina disaster, Lt. Gen. Russel L. Honoré a true leader. He would have this fixed up in no time.

Confirms the inability of government to foster a peaceful, productive society through force and threats of violence. Why not leave peacemaking to the local community? If they are creative, and succeed, that’s a desirable outcome. If they fail, and there’s a bloodbath, we give the community a Darwin Award.
