Where were peacekeepers?

In the April 20 paper, I was appalled at the now familiar news of more beheadings in Libya by the IS and its affiliates. As I recall, we host the United Nations in its grand headquarters in New York City.

Whatever happened to those blue helmets I thought were intended to put out fires around the world? Surely, the pictures of those bloody beaches should get their attention. Are we waiting for another Crusade?
