    Yes, the author does point out that one can use money to buy weapons. You can also use money to buy an ipad. You can buy a bicycle. You can buy shaving cream. You can buy mangos. You can buy books. You can buy a puppy....

    Who knew? Glad you posted this article, I had no idea. . Come on, man. Put your critical thinking cap on when you're reading articles like that. The Syrian Support Group gives the rebels money. They have no control over that on which the rebels spend the money. Which is the case when anybody gives anybody money.

    You're right. There is no meaningful difference between

    I'm sure it would make no difference to you if your boss paid you in dollars or armor piercing 120mm tank ammunition.

    "The Obama administration quietly has cleared the way for U.S. residents to buy weapons for the rebels..."

    Wtf does that say?

    We'd be supporting terrorists either way in this one. The Assad regime (at least Hafez), supported Hezbollah.

    We would have had much, much, much better control over which groups were in the ascendency in Syria if we had had agents on the ground and supply pipelines months ago. I predict our indecision on Syria is something that will haunt us for years to come. We had an opportunity and we have steadily frittered it away letting others haphazardly pick up the slack, choosing their own winners and losers. I tend to think we won't like to see which militias have received the benefit of Saudi and Qatari largesse.

    Right, or not! So post the link/s.

    It's obvious that we are supporting the overthrow of Assad. The likely reason is to get rid of the Russian naval base. Do you think that is why the Russians have just publicized the support for an upgraded base on Lourdes? Lourdes is Cuba. We have been encircling and attempting to contain Russian influence and power under the guise of Missile warning systems all over the Baltic countries to warn of incoming missiles from Iran. A real transparent agenda. Now the Russians will put some Nukes in Lourdes just to play diplomatic "tit for tat," and the USA will start scrounging for more money for more weapons and more high tech to defend against the "Soviet menace." The Russians are making a lot of money with their natural resources and are flush and the USA seems to be broke and nearly broken. Geez, and we are talking about Syria.
