This is an opportunity for the UN to prove to the world that it can do something, as long as they don't botch it. With the Islamic countries clamoring for the UN, let them have it. I think the US should lend transportation support, as SecDef said, then get out as soon as the Taliban are neutralized.

1953: The U.S. Coast Guards were dispatched from Sangley Point to save the crew of a Navy Lockheed P2V reconnaissance plane. They landed in 12-foot seas, risking their own crew to save their Navy counterparts. The Coast Guard fished 11 survivors from the wrecked plane. Tragically the Coast Guards port engine failed during take off, slamming the plane back into the cold waters of the South China Sea. Seven of the rescued Navy fliers survived this second crash; however, most of the Coast Guard crew was lost.
