Syria: Staying out or getting in?
Secretary of State John Kerry announced yesterday that the United States will provide $60 million in direct aid to the rebels fighting Syrian President Bashar Assad. For those of us who oppose direct US intervention in the conflict, the good news is that the aid is all "non-lethal," suggesting considerable caution on the part of the administration. The bad news may be that this is the first step on the road to putting American forces in harm's way.
