UN Troops coming to Chicago ?
Four city parks designated as advance bases.
If the 4000 UN troops arrive next month, they will be camped at Columbus park on the west side and at Sherman, Ogden and Foster parks on the south side. The troops are part of a UN mandate to stop the violence in Chicago and will be made of of soldiers from China, Burma, Chad and Denmark. They will be supported by the French 17th Air Wing of Mirage fighters based at Gary International Airport and a still undetermined number of Italian naval vessels.
The force will be under the command of General Ali Nape from the Sudan National Army who has stated that he expects the mission to be completed within six months or sooner, if the violence stops.
