Racism against Arabs helps explain why even the most professedly 
anti-Assad pundits and analysts, to a man, would never support giving 
the rebels serious arms, and especially not MANPADS.  Whatever the 
'solution' to the Syrian 'problem', it's something for the Great White 
Powers, not the excitable little Arabs who - all of them - would do God 
knows what with grownup weaponry.  (Instead, the 'anti-Assad' 
commentators have the effrontery to propose 'concrete plans' they know 
with absolute certainty will never be adopted.) Arabs, in the eyes of 
their Western 'supporters', are incapable of autonomous activity.  They 
can't be trusted to run their own affairs.   The only Arabs who get 
serious military equipment are those who can pay fabulous sums - however 
low the Arab race, their money's still good.
