President Barack Obama has asked the US Congress to approve $500m (294m) to train and equip what he described as "moderate" Syrian opposition forces.

The funds would help Syrians defend against forces aligned with President Bashar al-Assad, the White House said.

The aid would also counter Islamist militants such as the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (Isis), it added.

Isis's advance in neighbouring Iraq has led some in Congress to press Mr Obama to take action.

Tens of thousands of people have died and millions more have been displaced in three years of civil war in Syria, as rebels fight troops loyal to Mr Assad.BBC News - Syria crisis: Obama asks Congress for $500m for rebels

Would you support this latest proposal regarding Syria?

Or you could take $500m and flush it down a giant toilet.

I'm cool either way.

Eff Syria and eff the rebels. Let them sort out their own crazy bat$hit bs without a penny from us. The last thing the middle-east needs is any more "help" from Obama http://www.politico.com/magazine/sto...l#.U6zpPPldVtA

The sad reality is Obama will get it because the {R} party is always on board for military/foreign aid to other countries. You know that is the way so called conservatives roll with 17T in debt we have cash to burn
