McCain Resolution Calls for Arming Syrian Opposition, Safe Zones

•, by John Glaser
Senator John McCain introduced a new resolution on Syria Wednesday that calls for arming the Syrian rebels to fight the regime of Bashar al-Assad and establishing safe zones inside Syria.
The non-binding resolution stops short of calling for U.S. military intervention in Syria, which McCain and his co-sponsors support. The resolution is meant to build congressional support for some kind of direct intervention on behalf of the Syrian opposition

Sponsoring the bill with McCain are – unsurprisingly – Sens. Lindsey Graham, Joe Lieberman, Jon Kyl, Kelly Ayotte, and John Hoeven.

The Obama administration announced on Sunday their plan to send “non-lethal” aid to the Syrian rebels.
