(Reuters) - Saudi Arabia, a foe of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, has urged the European Union to arm Syrian rebels without delay, following similar action by the United States.
"The Syrian opposition is not only fighting an illegitimate regime, but also fighting a foreign occupier," Saudi state news agency SPA quoted Foreign Minister Prince Saud al-Faisal as telling an EU-GCC ministerial meeting in Bahrain on Sunday.

Why cant Saudi Arabia arm the rebels, they have certainly acquired the hardware to do so from the American and EU nations over the past couple of decades!

Something I suspect many don't realize is that Assad comes from a non Sunni and separate faction of Muslims and I heard that 40% of this particular group has died in this fighting.

Now we're at a war with Syria! It wont take long for these nations to immediately trump the rebels weaponry over Assads. They wont wait for Assad either, they'll go for the throat quickly.
So what happens when Assads gone? which faction is looking at taking over.
The Muslim Bros (bruvafromanuvamuva) took Egypt.
The west took Libya.
The Iranians took Baghdad
looks like the west is needing another win, whats Russia really gunna do about it?
