Abstract : This memorandum examines the difficulties encountered in United Nations sponsored operations that don't fit neatly into either traditional peacekeeping scenarios or outright combat. Some theorists have tried to eliminate discussing the problems created by these operations by defining all missions conducted without the consent of involved parties as enforcement and those conducted with consent as peacekeeping. They assert there is no middle ground or gray areas in which troops must operate. The author argues this view is not only wrong but dangerous.
