  •  The US is only "facilitating" the supply of arms. (0+ / 0-)

    They sell them to Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Turkey who in turn sell them to the rebels.

    •  No, rebels aren't getting US arms. (1+ / 0-)

      They're getting ex-Soviet & European weapons.  RPGs, Kornets, maybe MILANs.

      The only American weapons I've seen have been black market M-16s and the occasional antiquated LAW rocket.  Most likely picked up on the Lebanese black market, leftover from the 80s when the Marines left in a hurry.

      •  The US can supply AK47's or any other weapon (0+ / 0-)

        one desires. Thousands of AK47's have been manufactured in the US by Armory USA and sold to the government. In any event, the CIA can buy arms from Bulgaria or any other place in the world and have them secretly shipped.

        M-16's would not be of much use because ammo would be more difficult to get. The CIA has a long, long history of supplying thousands of AK47's in every corner of the world.
