I don't it's a question of what can the UN do, but more a question of what will the UN do? Most of the time if they do anything at all, it is sanctions. It is certainly rare for the UN to send in military force, but in this case it is my opinion that is exactly what they ought to do instead of sitting back and letting this happen.
Thousands of people being uprooted and forced from their homes, being tortured, being murdered - totally innocent, defenseless people who have never caused any harm to anybody - and for what? Only because other people don't like their religion and/or ethnicity. And what is even worse is the same kind of thing is going on in other parts of the world too.
Another quote from 'QB VII' that I think is appropriate - a reference to The Holocaust:
"The world was collectively sick in those years - and still is."
