“Mr Kerry told the meeting in Istanbul that the US would provide Syrian rebels $123m (£81m) in new, non-lethal aid.”

Give us a break, USA. Telling the world not to ship “lethal” aid to Syria plays into the hands of the enemies of Freedom. Assad will thank USA for prolonging his bloody regime. Al Qaeda and others will be glad to fill the vacuum when Assad finally dies. That’s a vacuum USA is creating by not giving freedom-loving people in Syria the tools needed to obtain freedom: assault rifles, sniper rifles, light artillery and rockets to take out Assad’s planes and to hammer his fortifications.
Face it, Kerry. Assad is not an option. He’s killing Syrians wholesale. If you want ordinary Syrians to run the country when the dust settles they need arms and training last year.
