Anyone who believes that the smallish number of weapons that, as is well 
known, have been sent by Saudi Arabia and Qatar are in fact 
US/British/French weapons" in disguise, because they believe the 
powerful oil monarchies never act as anything but "clients" for the 
US/Britain/France, has no clue either about the real relations between 
imperialism and its powerful regional "sub-imperialist" friends (hint: 
they are not mere puppets), or about the *actual* state of affairs, the 
differences among them, in this particular conflict, as is 

I won't dig out evidence for that for you, as you don't seem likely to 
read anything that challenges your simplistic way of looking at things, 
but there is tons of evidence in my articles at Links.

So let me just categorically repeat what I believe to be true: (until 
perhaps this week?) the US has not sent the Syrian rebels a rifle.
