I really hope that AL's reply to Jack's, "How long do you think it would take to train an army?", question will be, "Haven't got a clue Jack, I was a beat cop, not a Green Beret. Go ask Sayid."
...but it won't be, because there apparently isn't a technical advisor on set to point out what a stupid, nonsensical contrivance that would be. If they honestly need to work this hard to involve M-Rod in the story, maybe they should just accept that there wasn't room for her to begin with?
