Syrian Rebels Want US To Strike Hard Against Regime

Time's up rebel chief says


As the U.S. Congress prepares to debate military action against the Syrian regime, rebel commanders and fighters on the ground say that it would take a decisive strike to aid them in their fight.

Salim Idris, the chief of staff of the Free Syrian Army's (FSA) Supreme Military Council, says he hopes for a devastating strike against the regime, not just a "slap on the wrist" with little to no impact.

"There is no more room for excuses from the international community after this massacre," says Idris, a former brigadier general in Assad's army who defected in July 2012.
