US troops on Syria border as Obama arms rebels

Forces loyal to Syria's President Assad carry the national flag as they ride on motorcycles in Qusair

This is a mess that is only going to get messier.
Check it out:

Three hundred US Marines have been deployed to northern Jordan to pave the way for the West to arm Syrian rebels.

A Patriot anti-aircraft missile system, designed to protect Jordanian territory from attack by Assad missiles, has also been moved into the area.

The deployment, seen by The Times north of Al-Mafraq, has been put in place under cover of a military training exercise being held this week, but it will remain there for months.
