The UN send peacekeepers into a lot of countries every year. But these peace keepers are not the useful because everyone speaks a different language. If the UN has a standard Army, won't they be able to reduce the fighting easier?

Well, according to me a standard army of UN will do nothing but create more problems. The problem of language is easily tackled by the ambassadors from various countries. As far as the war is concerned, I guess, the UN has been flowing under the influence of the powerful countries (super power nations) because of the fact that they have a greater share of say in the community. Moreover hardly do we find any sort of issue misinterpreted linguistically to create chaos among countries. That could be at an interstate level or may be at any other lower level of administration.

And why specifically do you wish UN to have an army to act merely as a translator within nations? It can be a moderator to conclude the debate peacefully, which it actually is.

Instead of concentrating over such things, it can be better if the message of peace, equality and communal harmony is propagated among countries by the UN. After all, "Love has no language." Let the voice of a common man be heard by the administrators globally through the people chairing the United Nations. The voice which calls for peace,, and just peace, which can never come if the political, religious and other dozens of them continue on minute differences of Language, resources, religion and I guess, every property which can be owned!

But if the UN has a standard army, then wars can be ended quicker, more than getting an amount of number of people to be peacekeepers, the UN can just train an standard army, which will make the army more powerful to stop wars, and more effective. Right now, with the peacekeepers the UN is giving, the wars are not at peace yet. What are you going to do about that?
