"... organise a coalition POLICE force that works with the Lebanese ... £/$ x million for economic upgrading ... will probably end up fighting a form of guerilla warfare" After the last war in Lebanon, the US sent peace keepers as part of the deal that started to send IDF out of Lebanaon. Hezbollah attacked non - combatant soldiers sleeping in their barracks. And then, if I remember correctly, the American Embassy in Lebanon. Soon afterwards the Americans pulled out leaving Israel stuck for 20 years in South Lebanon until Israel withdraw to the Internationally recognized border. Lets not forget the kidnapping of Westerners that came to help the Lebanese get back up on their feet. The US already said they won't participate in the to be organized International Peace Keeping force. What makes you think that countries less friendly to Israel will defend Israel after a few troops are killed? Then this starts again; only worse.
