“I’d like to see us take a side,” Lieberman said in an interview with CBS “This Morning”.

“I don’t think it’s enough clearly for us to say Assad should go, Assad’s a dictator… We have a moral responsibility and a strategic opportunity to do more than what we’re doing there,” he said.

“So what would I do,” he continued. “I’d embrace the cause of the opposition to Assad, I’d begin to work with them closely. I’d give them weapons, that’s the key.”
