There's Only You and Me...

Someone was going to do this first, and I suppose given their history and inclinations France was the likeliest candidate:

France announced Tuesday that it was recognizing the newly formed Syrian rebel coalition and would consider arming the group, seeking to inject momentum into a broad Western and Arab effort to build a viable and effective opposition that would hasten the end of a stalemated civil war that has destabilized the Middle East.

Kissinger was supposed to have said about the Iran-Iraq War, "It's a pity they can't both lose." Given that the Syrian rebels will almost certainly become dominated by Islamists once all is said and done, Kissinger's sentiment is probably the correct one.
