U.S. Senators Call to Arm Syrians

United States Senators John McCain and Joseph Lieberman called Tuesday for the U.S. to arm Syrian rebels. “The international community is failing the people of Syria,” said McCain. “The only way to reverse this is to help the opposition change the military balance of power on the ground.”

Lieberman called to arm President Bashar Assad’s political opponents “to help them defend themselves and their families, at a minimum.”
