Reactionary US Senator John McCain spilled the beans in a speech last Sunday when he said: "I'm glad that some of the nations in the Gulf, the Saudis are providing some weapons to the Syrian opposition."
Who provides weapons to Saudi Arabia, the most reactionary regime in the region? Britain and the US of course.
McCain wants more to be done and is calling for the US to provide weapons directly to the gangs of armed thugs and terrorists who make up the so-called Syrian Free Army.
The report quotes the British-based anti-Assad Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, which was set up six years ago by businessman Rami Abdul Rahman and works covertly in Syria.
The Star should be careful quoting any information from that source.
It is plain to see the long-term tactics of the West.
They are hoping to create another Libya scenario in Syria, start a civil war and overthrow the Syrian government to be replaced by a compliant Western one, then use Syria as a forward base for any impending invasion of Iran.
William Hague should mind his own business about the internal affairs of Syria. We can see the results of Western meddling in Libya now with tribal fighting and murders happening every day.
I hope the Morning Star's foreign desk can give a more objective analysis of the murky agencies fuelling the crisis in Syria.
