      Poll: U.S. Arming Syrian Rebels

      Poll: U.S. Arming Syrian Rebels

      Both sides in Syria's civil war are getting some pledges of support.

      The leader of Lebanon's Hezbollah group is vowing to keep fighting alongside Syrian government troops, wherever his fighters are needed.

      And the United States will be working out the details of the weapons it will be providing to Syrian rebels. U.S. officials say those weapons could include small arms, ammunition, assault rifles and a variety of anti-tank weapons.

      The Obama administration decided to help arm the rebels after determining that the Syrian government had used chemical weapons against them. The administration says the government used the nerve agent sarin on two occasions in Aleppo in March and April.

      U.S. Ambassador Susan Rice detailed the attacks in a letter to U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon.

      Tonight in the Daily Pulse we're wondering: Do you support the United States decision to provide weapons to Syrian rebels? Yes or no? Why or why not?
