The UK might start arming Syrian rebels if the death toll and humanitarian crisis continue to worsen, making it necessary to do "something new to save lives", William Hague said on Sunday.
"I don't rule out anything for the future. If this is going to go on for months, or years, and more tens of thousands of people are going to die, and countries like
Iraq and Lebanon
are going to be destabilised, it is not something we can ignore," the
foreign secretary told the BBC's Andrew Marr Show.
"If ever we get into that situation [of supplying weapons to the opposition] the risks of arms falling into the wrong hands is one of the great constraints. And it is one of the reasons we don't do it now. But these things are a balance of risk. You can reach consensus eventually when humanitarian need is so great and the loss of life is so great that you have to do something new to save lives. That's why I don't rule it out in the future."
If UK et al comes with weapons they will be different on the ground … how could they fight so far? Super human strength revolutionary, wit courage and determination, in my view all these foreign Islamist will go back to their own countries when they are finish their benevolence holy task save innocence people and
Syria from criminal assad. All
these moderate revolutionary are getting
on well with them so no problems pursued them to do so.
