    US President Barack Obama has approved non-lethal US aid, including communications equipment and medicines for Syria's rebels, and plans to increase the package over time, a US official said Friday.

    The administration had previously indicated it would take such a step, in line with an initiative by the international "Friends of Syria" group to bolster opponents of President Bashar al-Assad's regime.

    "Consistent with our longstanding efforts to support the peaceful opposition in Syria, the US is providing non-lethal material assistance to the non-violent, political opposition," the official said.

    The medical supplies and communications equipment includes items the opposition asked for to help civilians in need and to organize themselves to combat "brutality" by government forces, the official said.

    "It's likely deliveries of this assistance will increase over time."

    So what do you think?

    It would be nice if the American People actually had a say in this stuff huh? The Foreign Aid issue definitely needs to be re-examined. I mean, we're $16 Trillion in Debt for God's sake. And Obama and the Democrats are now pushing for higher Taxes as well. So this is definitely an expenditure the American People can do without.

    Unless you are sending in weapons and special forces people to help train and organize these rebels your doing nothing and I'm not in favor of sending troops there so this is a big nay.

    I'd be interested in hearing about the aid packages other countries will be kicking in.
