US really cares about Lebanon's oil and gas discoveries

U.S. Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Energy Diplomacy, Amos Hochstein, was in Lebanon (and of course he was received, like any and every US official at every rank, by the president and the rest of officials) and he expressed to Lebanese officials US desire to offer its assistance and knowledge to Lebanon in its exploration of oil and gas.  I mean, how nice is that?  How charitable?  The US has a history of caring for the oil and gas treasures of the region, and at no cost and for no ulterior motive whatsoever.
