    U.S. House votes to arm Syrian rebels

    The U.S. House of Representatives approved President Barack Obama's plan on Wednesday to train and arm moderate Syrian rebels, but questions remain over whether it will give them the advanced weapons they say they need to defeat Islamic State militants.

    Arm "Syrian Free Army" to fight militants extremist group called "Islamic state" is like the arm mafia to fight with people from the same mafia. Everything is "logical", as usual all the things in our government
