Subject: Why UN Peacekeeping is worth the risks

"While UN peacekeeping is no miracle cure and there are no guarantees of success, when done right and properly mandated and resourced, UN peacekeeping offers the best chance for a society emerging from violent conflict.

Peacekeeping is the front end of a complex, long-term process of helping conflicting parties create the necessary conditions political, socio-economic, security for sustainable peace.
.....only the UN Organization can lead the mission if is to be internationally acceptable. Headed by a civilian in the role of Special Representative of the UN Secretary-General (SRSG), with all the other components, including the military and police, reporting to him or her, the very structure of the UN peacekeeping mission reflects the centrality of the peace process. This stands in sharp contrast to NATO-led military missions, even where authorized by the UNSC to assist in stabilizing a conflict.
NATO-led stability operations lack the perceived legitimacy and impartiality of UN-led operations precisely because their political and military leaders are seen to represent a very specific set of powerful countries and interests. Not only does this undermine coherence in the international effort; it also constitutes a gift to spoilers on the ground decrying alleged �foreign occupation.�
An integrated mission under the overall authority of the SRSG also allows UN command and control to be decentralized to the operational level. This contrasts with the centralized, top-heavy and opaque command structure operating in NATO."

Subject: Organ donation a life-and-death matter

Humans are strange creatures. How many times have we heard arguments in favour of some law or regulation: �If it only saves one life.�? Organ transplant save many lives and could save many more.

Yet, when we consider donating our organs after death, many of us do not complete a form that will allow doctors to harvest our organs and possibly save a life. Apparently over 70% of Canadians support organ donations but only about 20% register.

Failure to create a will can cause serious problems and heartaches for the family left behind. Failure to register for organ donation can cause serious problems for the families desperately awaiting a donor organ to save a loved one. Our failure to act can have serious consequences for others.

We have laws to deal with situations where people die without a will. We need a law to institute presumed consent for organ donations. We are a compassionate people who will reach out to save others. The concept of not helping someone awaiting a life-saving organ transplant seems at odds with our standards and values.  

Those who object to organ donations must be allowed to register and be assured that their organs will not be harvested. We need a simple, universally accessible data base of those who do not wish to donate organs. Children, exempted by their parents, must be able to withdraw from the registry when adults if they so choose. Adults unable to make lawful decisions should be added to the registry.

This is not an insolvable problem. A change to implied consent can save many lives. Implied consent does not mean a universal harvesting of organs. We may not be considered viable donors due to age, illness, blood type and many other factors. Transplants are a complex undertaking but cannot happen at all without donated organs. That is the crux of the issue.

John Feldsted
