UK, France Vow to Arm Syrian Rebels Despite Embargo
The leaders of Britain and France claim they could well supply weapons to the Syrian rebels despite a UN embargo. Russia responded by saying any attempt to do so would be a breach of international law. RT contributor Afshin Rattansi believes it'll eventually backfire on western countries if they arm rebels in Syria.
Those in power in the France and the UK only want to get rid of Assad because he has supported Lebanon and the Palestinians. If they were concerned about humanity they would act against the oppressive dictatorships in Yemen and Bahrain.
The West through Turkey, Qatar and Saudi Arabia have already armed the Syrian rebels. The talk about directly arming them now, including the mercenaries that have poured into the country, denies the damage already done to the lives of the Syrian people. What we are seeing is the mechinations of proxy warfare for larger geopolitican interests - we see duped Islamists serving the interests of foreign powers.
There should be sanctions on the UK and France for their involvement in creating this conflict.
