To somehow alert the "wimp" of where to find the resources to learn how to deal with this sort of stuff and to also let him know that he is not alone may be the best course of action for you to take.
I was actually thinking this on the way home from work today, and I agree. It's probably best to just detach from the sitch and leave it to the person being bullied to learn to stand on their own...otherwise it is just rescuing them and perpetuating their victim state, rather than allowing them to come to the solution in their own way at the right time.
Learning to detach in life is a huge lesson. Non-interference with someone elses lesson is important I think.
