Those who can't do, teach
This should go just swimmingly:
(08-03) 13:38 PDT WASHINGTON, (AP) --
The United States plans to help train and equip the Lebanese army so it can take control of all of the nation's territory when warfare between Israel and Hezbollah eases, the State Department said Thursday.
Great! We can teach them all the useful information we've learned about occupying hostile areas. After all, Iraq and Afghanistan have gone SO well... (and all those Iraqi soldiers we've successfully trained!)
And of course, details are, as ever with the Bush crowd, nonexistent:
McCormack provided no details on what equipment the United States might provide, the training that would be conducted, how many U.S. personnel would be involved, or possible costs.
I can't see how this could POSSIBLY go wrong.
