Well, I would say it is about time.

KINSHASA, Congo (AP) -- Using special forces troops and attack helicopters, U.N. peacekeepers have launched an operation to rid eastern Congo of armed militia, a United Nations spokesman said Tuesday.

Operation Falcon Sweep began Monday in the forest-covered mountains of South Kivu province, a dense region controlled by several militia accused of raping, killing and kidnapping hundreds of residents every month, said U.N. military spokesman Thierry Provendier


I don't know the extent of training the Guatamalan adn Pakistani Special Forces have, but they seem to be spearheading this assault on Congolese Rebels, most of whom were involved in the genocide in Rwanda.

It is about time we heard something positive from UN Peacekeepers. They are actually taking the initiative to fight.
