Some days ago, General Selim Idris, Chief of Staff of the so called Free Syrian Army was in the European Parliament, where he was invited by Guy Verhofstadt, former Belgian Prime Minister and leader of the Group of the Alliance of Liberals and Democrats ‘for Europe’.

Idris said that his army needed the West to supply “weapons and ammunition” so that his forces can “defend themselves.”

He said that, if such support arrived, “The regime will collapse in a month.” He added that Syrians ‘supporting the rebellion’ didn’t understand why the West had an arms embargo.

“There is no real action,” he said.

He was supported by Guy Verhofstadt, who said that there was “a growing consensus in Europe that the Syrian conflict cannot go on interminably.” The Liberal leader also said that arms should be supplied “in order that you can defend yourselves.”
