    Default Peacekeeping and Plurality

    I fear I must ask a question that has plagued me for some time.

    The United Nations currently has 16 peacekeeping operations. If I were to give support to a singular peacekeeping operation, would that be an act of "increasing support for peacekeeping operations"? If I give support to one, does that increase the support for the entire body as a whole? Or, because of the plurality of "operations," must I support all (or at least more than one) to increase support for peacekeeping operations?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    It depends what type of support. If you were making a contribution, then you would be able to support a single operation.

    Thank you. What about, say, diplomatic support? Would diplomatic support to a single operation be an act of "support of peacekeeping operations?"

    No, because you could suport one operation, but oppose another. France, for example, supports the peacekeeping operation in the Ivory Coast, but doesn't support others.
