NO ARMS TO SYRIA- PERIOD!!!
Any arms given to the rebels there will guaranteed to be used against Americans at some point in the future, just as they were in Iraq & Afghanistan and any other country we armed.
Will we NEVER learn from our mistakes?
Apparently not.....
I agree.
NO armed entry into Syria, and NO arms either.
