Don’t give the Syrian rebels weapons

I saw that the Obama administration is going to give weapons to the Syrian rebels, even though there has long been evidence that most of them are Al-Qaeda or affiliated with Al-Qaeda.

I think it’s a bad idea to give them weapons. They’re just going to turn them on the US when the Syrian civil war is over.

Then again, perhaps the idea is to prolong the war. Assad uses sarin nerve gas, tanks and helicopters against the rebels, so the US gives weapons to the rebels to help level the playing field, in what has become a larger internecine war of Sunni versus Shiite Muslims.

The longer they occupy themselves with killing each other, the safer the rest of the world is. Perhaps that’s the Obama administration’s hope.

I doubt it.
