The government has invited US Special Forces to come and train "Light Reaction Companies" (LRCs). Starting next month, volunteers from infantry and marine units will be formed into 90 man LRCs and will undergo three weeks of special training. This will enable the LRCs to be used to hunt down bandits and rebels who hide in the bush.
