France: We must arm Syrian rebels now

With the carnage in Syria mounting out of control, there's only one thing left to do, France says: Lift a European Union embargo and start arming rebels.

"We must convince our partners, particularly in Europe, that we have no other choice but lift the arms embargo in favor of the (opposition) Syrian Coalition," French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius wrote in an op-ed for the French newspaper Liberation.

    Sure France. The right recipe for more horror.
    Arm Al-Qaeda when we see fit.

    As long as they do not give them "assault " rifles. Feinstein would be upset. Perhaps some old muskets and maybe a few old winchesters.
