"Helicopter Diplomacy"

Quit complaining, start pushing.

That’s the message from NATO Secretary Rasmussen to the hardest working man in show business, Sergey Lavrov. If the Kremlin is worried about Afghanistan, Rasmussen has given them a grocery list: send helicopters and provide police training.

CNN: "NATO Secretary-General Anders Fogh Rasmussen is asking Russia to broaden its presence in Afghanistan with more choppers and expanded police training. 'I have proposed that Russia provide a helicopter package...I hope the Russians will consider my proposal positively.'
The good news, is that we’re about to see if any of this "reset" business is working. The bad news is that – wait –, did he just say police training?

Rassmussen, buddy. You really want Russian police officers to "train" their Afghan counterparts?

Is this the best idea of all time?
