Just in! There has been heavy debate over supplying the Syrian “rebels”; I.e., Freedom Fighters, with arms. President Obama has given the go-ahead, and sophisticated anti-tank missiles will be sent to them. In fact, according to one OSINT News source, Syrian rebels have received their first “third generation” anti-tank weapons, the 9K115-2 Metis-M and Kornet E. They are supplied by Saudi and Qatari intelligence agencies following a secret message from President Barack Obama approving the raising of the military stake in the effort to oust Assad. It is hoped the blazing tanks will undermine morale in the army and the Assad regime will delay the movement of armored units between flash point scenes. Ankara was also advised to start providing Syrian rebels with IEDs for roadside bombing of government vehicles. Assad’s Russian and Iranian military and intelligence advisers are warning him that a protracted guerrilla war is in the making, for which the Syrian army is ill-prepared.

President Obama is "walking the talk" by putting his threats into reality. Earlier this month, President Obama told the Atlantic Weekly, “It is our estimation that Assad’s days are numbered – it’s a matter not of if, but when.” Then, this week, President Obama told a members at the weekend’s G-8 Summit at Camp David, Maryland that "Bashar al-Assad must leave power".

There has been a rash of Syria's T-72 tanks being blown to pieces. It is suspected the Syrian freedom fighters already possess the anti-tank missiles, have been trained in their usage, and are responsible for the recent T-72 batterings.
