CIA spies 'smuggle 14 Stinger missiles into Syria so rebels can take out regime warplanes

CIA spies have smuggled up to 14 Stinger missiles into Syria so rebels can defend themselves from air strikes.

The ground-to-air weapons have been delivered across the Turkish border to the Free Syrian Army and were partly paid for by Saudi Arabia, a security source claimed.

President Bashar al-Assad’s MIG-23 warplanes and helicopter gunships have killed more than 1,000 people.

Do you think this is a "good idea" in the sense it prevents NATO troops from entering and making matters worse?
If they only did this in Libya and never intervened, would Libya have been a Syria situation and still on going?

IMO, a few downed jets and helicopters will not over throw the regime or military and will only cause more attacks to be made.
