They have this happening and they've sent over 31 guys?? My God... they're asking for another failure. But look at this, they're Pakistani peacekeepers. It seems like those guys have been sticking their necks out to protect Africans for decades now. Their army must have some seriously experienced personell.
I hope those kids get released without harm, but my gut says it's going to be another bad day in Africa.

ANd all decked out in Blue helmets as targets. The Pakistanis are brave, but that is nuts if they don't at least have chopper support.

Yeah the Pak's go anywhere. And rely on the UN for logistics, and support. Those guys clank when they walk.
