UN in Kosovo

There is graffiti everywhere with "UNMIK EULEX" stenciled on a wall in black, crossed out with a red X. This seemed odd, as the UN is keeping Kosovo from becoming Greater Serbia. Then I saw some of the UN teams.
A UNICEF team parked their Porsche SUV in the middle of an intersection before going door-to-door on foot.

The UN teams live in the fancy mansions on the eastern hillside, and have a TWO STORY barbed wire fence around one of them.

There is a huge UN medical compound outside Prishtina, surrounded with two-story concrete walls made from precast slabs. It looks like the US Green Zone in Iraq.

The UN forces would do better to act less like an occupying force.
