Maneuvers began on August 8 and were held in Lebanon, near Beirut. Besides the troops of Lebanon the drills involved the naval forces, Army and the Coast Guard of the US.

US Central Command reported that the purpose of joint exercises is to demonstrate US support for the Lebanese army. According to the US embassy in Beirut in 2005, Washington has issued assistance in the amount of 1.4 billion dollars.

Not so much when compared with how much the United States spends on terrorists in Syria. According to US media, it is about $ 2 million for each terrorist - total 406 billion US dollars.
