Syria conflict worsening

It is disturbing that the Syria issue continues to go from bad to worse and is becoming increasingly complicated.

Israel's air strikes on Syria should again sound the alarm to the international community about the dangers of the crisis spreading, while the testimony gathered by the United Nations' human rights investigators suggests that the Syrian rebel forces have used the nerve gas sarin, which, if confirmed, means the conflict is heading in a very dangerous direction.

And the bad news doesn't end there. US Democratic Senator Bob Menendez introduced legislation on Monday, calling for the United States to provide weapons to Syrian opposition groups that do not have links to terrorism. So far, Washington has said it has only provided nonlethal assistance to the rebels.
