On Wednesday, Florida Republican Sen. Marco Rubio, widely considered a potential 2016 presidential contender, called for President Barack Obama to supply ammunition to parts of the Syrian opposition to help them bring down the regime of Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad.
“Syria is awash in arms, both weapons from the Syrian regime that are being captured and weapons that are coming in from third parties in other countries,” Rubio said, speaking at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy about his recent trip to Israel and Jordan.
“What the opposition really needs is access to ammunition. And I think one of the things we can consider, if we can identify a couple of responsible groups — or more responsible groups that we feel have built capacity — ammunition is something we can provide. … And I think that’s a step I’m prepared to advocate for.”
