I'm surprised no one has talked about this on here yet. The Obama administration yesterday announced that it'll provide arm to the Syrian Rebels with the justification that the Syrian Regime used it's Chemical weapons.
Russia has also denies such reports, sticking by it's ally.
To me this thing has officially become a proxy war, I hope that we don't start an arms race in Syria...if we haven't already. By this I mean the Russian backed Syrian government, and the Us backed Rebels. One side adds weapons the other will proably do so too,until one side beats the other.
