Not that it was really feasible to just put down a couple of armored divisions between the belligerents, unless you wanted to wait until after they were done with the first round of ethnic cleansing.

The American and Israeli experience in Lebanon is that if you intervene in that sort of messy civil war, you end up with no perceptible strategic gain, no perceptible humanitarian improvement, and all the locals hating your guts.
