I have noticed before that "basically nice kids wander into an ancient land of which they know nothing, get equipped with high-tech weaponry, plunge into the middle of a civil war, kill thousands, and somehow end up staying there for decades trying to run the country as things get more and more complicated" is the plot of both the Afghan War and The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.
