There's no reason for the US to get involved in Lebanon on the ground. The yehudis can handle it. At best, the US pressence could make their
targeting more precise, or provide something like an 'objective overview' or something, but what nation would agree to foreign oversight on a war
anyway?? Also, if the US got involved, it'd give reason for the Iranians and Syrians to get more involved.
What would our exit strategy in Lebanon be?
What would our targets be? Dictated by the Israelis?
We have no intelligence in lebanon, and no interests. If Hezbollah started bombing US cities, that'd be a different story. Right now, its an
israeli-lebanese issue, no need for the US to throw itself into that fight, on either side.
