The US's decision to arm Syrian rebels may be due to Hezbollah's involvement in the conflict, with Washington and Jerusalem seeing it as a chance to counter anti-Israeli actions, author and historian Gerald Horne has told RT.
US President Barack Obama has given the green light to military support for the Syrian opposition after his administration concluded that Assad's regime had used chemical weapons against rebels numerous times over the last year.
However, Horne, from the University of Houston, does not believe that the US will be able to produce evidence of the use of chemical agent sarin by regime troops, saying that
he doubts such evidence exists.
