EU launches crisis police force: European Gendarmerie Force

BBC NEWS Europe EU launches crisis police force
"...something between the neutrality of traditional UN peacekeeping and Nato's cruise missiles."
The text from the news report sums it up well. Policemen are more suited for "before & after" scenarios. Before & after a full-scale conflict, soldiers often look out of place on the ground. Sudan is the perfect scenario for this force, however the force is not ready yet.
