The Daily Star reports on the Senator for Tel Aviv’s latest humanitarian suggestion:

The United States should look at providing weapons and other aid to Syrian rebels if Russia and China refuse to reconsider their vetoes of a UN resolution against Damascus, a top US senator said Sunday.

Senator Joe Lieberman, a former Democratic presidential candidate, said the Syrian people “have shown extraordinary courage in the face of a government much stronger than they are” and “they are not going to be denied.”

“The question is not whether (President Bashar Assad) will go, but when he will go. The sooner he goes, the fewer innocents will be killed,” he said at security conference in the southern German city of Munich.
