Arming! Training!

I know we spend stupid amounts of money creating a giant data center to store your sexts on our very serious intelligence agencies who of course can tell, perhaps with a high tech sorting hat, who is in Slytherin and who is in Gryffindor, but the idea that we really have the human intelligence to know who the "good rebels" are and that if we dump a few warehouses of guns and missiles on them they'll be able to put them to good use is just absurd. We cannot know that. This is just an impossible bit of knowledge in a volatile civil war situation. We can pick sides, but the side will always only be "that guy is bad, so his enemies must be better."
