A plan so cunning you could put a tail on it and call it a fox.

When the Soviet Union invaded Afghanistan, the American response was to (covertly) sponsor and train local militias/freedom fighters.  Arguably it went well, since the Soviet Union left, and collapsed. Arguably it went badly, since it's some of those same people they're now fighting themselves.

Luckily they've got a plan... http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/asia/petraeuss-first-act-is-to-establish-militias-to-fight-the-taliban-2027711.html

It's like that Future Shock where the scientist keeps creating more and more super supermen :-)
