US wants to end UN arms embargo on Liberia

There are a couple of things going on with this issue. If the UN (and the US) is ever going to get out of here, Liberia needs to build a military. They are making the force a small and light one, trying to get women and educated people involved. The government doesn't have control of the whole country yet, even. And Aunt Ellen is not yet safe, which means Liberia is not safe. (The old me would say that it's also a way to make sure that US aid money comes back to the US in the form of arms sales. But the Ledger tries not to be so cynical.)
