THERE are 17'000 UN peacekeepers in the Congo. It is widely accepted that they are too few in number to do their job. There are therefore calls for reinforcements and the British and French foreign secretaries have been in the Congo for the past few days assessing the situation. The French may have some uncommitted military resources to deploy but it is obvious that Britain, with its continuing involvement in Iraq and Afghanistan, can do little to help. That does not stop David Miliband from issuing strong statements warning the Congolese and others of dire consequences if they do not stop scrapping.
