Press TV – US may allow air defense help for militants in Syria
The United States is considering shipping new air defense systems to insurgents in Syria who are fighting the government of Bashar al-Assad, a US official said Friday.
The Obama administration, which has been pressed by Saudi Arabia over the issue, is considering the shipment of the man-portable air-defense systems, known as “manpads,” into Syria.

The small northwestern Syrian town of Kassab, located directly on the Syrian-Turkish border, has turned into a pivotal battleground between Syrian security forces and armed militants backed by the Turkish military. The clashes grabbed headlines last Sunday when Turkey shot down a Syrian warplane conducting airstrikes along the border as the militants crossed over into Syrian territory.
As with all empires throughout human history, there is a defining moment when decline becomes irreversible and the demise of an empire imminent. For “Pax Americana” and the elite sitting on Wall Street and in the City of London, that moment might be the Battle for Kassab and the ignominious end of the West’s attempted regime change in Syria.
