Romney Wants to Give Arms to Syrian Rebels

Mitt Romney is signalling a more active policy on the Syrian uprising than Barack Obama, calling explicitly for weapons deliveries to rebel forces and framing the conflict in geostrategic terms as one which can lead to defeat for Iran, Bashar al-Assad's principal ally.
