US to aid Syrian groups that support al Qaeda's affiliate
By Bill RoggioFebruary 28, 2013
The US State Department announced today that it will provide nonlethal aid to two Syrian rebel groups, the Syrian Opposition Coalition and the Free Syrian Army. Both of these groups support and actively fight alongside the Al Nusrah Front for the People of the Levant, which is al Qaeda's affiliate in the war-torn country.
The State Department announced that it would provide $60 million in direct aid to the Syrian Opposition Coalition, an alliance of Syrian groups that has come out in support of the Al Nusrah Front after the US designated it as a Foreign Terrorist Organization and al Qaeda in Iraq's affiliate in Syria in December 2012.

If Russia knows this why don't they intervene already!
I don't know about you but I'm about pissed off. Well this report has been running real long, and so I don't have time to cover Syria or Iran. But since I believe that they are Obama's next targets I will cover them next week.
If America becomes one of these counties with civil war or revolution, is our gov gonna fund us too? Will Israel n turkey n other country's help the rebels here?
