U.S.: We Won't Stop UK, France from Arming Rebels


American Secretary of State John Kerry announced, Monday evening, that the administration in Washington won't prevent Britain, France or any other country from providing weapons to rebels trying to oust Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad.

Kerry said that as the violence in Syria continues, so does the risk that Syrian institutions will collapse and that the extremists will get their hands on chemical weapons. He noted that there is no balance between the forces fighting in Syria - The Assad regime's forces are attacking with tanks, Scud missiles and aircraft, while the rebels have no such tools.
