Another day, another day of fighting in Syria, where government forces fight a farrago of opposition, from “rebels” to jihadists. Click here for an excellent documentary about another boy (Ibrahim) caught up in the day-to-day struggle to survive in a war-torn country. Meanwhile, Syria’s plight shows why the U.N. Small Arms Treaty is so . . . problematic. The Syrian government would seek to use it to cut off the flow of small arms to “terrorists.” The U.S. government would ignore it to “secretly” channel weapons to the rebels (as they are now). Well, some rebels. In any case, it’s better to be armed than disarmed. Period.
