    "Many stability operations are best performed by indigenous, foreign or U.S. civilian professionals," the directive says, reflecting the Pentagon's sentiment still that it need not always lead in this area. "Nonetheless, U.S. military forces shall be prepared to perform all tasks necessary to establish or maintain order when civilians cannot do so."
    Of the whole article this one seems pertinant. Don't try to turn infantry men into plumbers and civil engineers, but let them be infantry men. Let professionals do their thing when safty is established.
