America's entanglement with Israel

Qatar goes public on its arming of “peaceful” Syrian uprising

with one comment

Reports the Guardian on Qatar’s belated admission of its arming of the Syrian opposition:

“We should do whatever necessary to help them, including giving them weapons to defend themselves,” said Qatar’s prime minister, Sheikh Hamad bin Jassim Al-Thani, on Monday. “This uprising in Syria now [has lasted] one year. For 10 months, it was peaceful: nobody was carrying weapons, nobody was doing anything. And Bashar continued killing them.

“So I think they’re right to defend themselves by weapons, and I think we should help these people by all means.”
