UN Troops in South Sudan Raping Children

While this isn't the first time these allegations have surfaced, I believe that not enough attention has been devoted to it. Unlike our current and soon to be former US representative at the UN, John Bolton, I don't believe that the UN is useless and should be dismantled. However, I do think that it needs to to be revamped in many areas. It needs to be strengthened while being held accountable for all that it does. That would include removal and prosecution of criminals that run amok who are supposed to be stopping the very actions that they themselves are committing.
