This all proves, once again, that the Obama administration would rather play weapons-for-peace gambits than talk real democracy. In the end, what those paragons of democracy -- the GCC petro-monarchies -- want is exactly what the Anglo-Franco-American axis wants (but can't admit explicitly); a long, horrid, protracted war where no one can claim victory. We're now living under the terrible shade, and possible, much expanded remix, of the 1980-1988 Iran-Iraq war. 

Notes:
1.  Decision to arm Syrian rebels was reached weeks ago, US officials say, Washington Post, June 15, 2013.
2.  Saudi Arabia, France sending Syria rebels anti-aircraft guns: source, Al-Akhbar, June 17, 2013. 
3.  US to Arm Syrian Rebels, Wall Street Journal, June 14, 2013.
4.  US participating in international Eager Lion exercise in Jordan, Stars and Stripes, June 12, 2013.
5.  Morsi's Syria stance influenced by US: Egyptian opposition, Ahramonline, June 16, 2013.
