    We are, correctly so, leary of giving weapons to the rebels in Syria, especially since the UN is now pursuing leaders of BOTH sides for war crimes. I will say in the defense of the rebels that it is quite difficult to think and act objectively when you constantly observe what the Syrian regime is doing to civilians, even civilians who do not oppose them. We do, however, face the same quandary we faced in Libya – if we don’t help them and they win(which I hope they do), they really will owe us nothing, and we will have no standing or influence in determining Syria’s future. Is that what we want? We should, at the very least, be doing everything possible to prevent weapons from Iran entering into Syria or, for that matter, even getting past the borders of Iran.
