Arming all sides to the Syrian conflict

Here’s an important al-Jazeera video about various foreign powers arming various sides to the conflict in Syria. There is now no doubt that Gulf countries, the centers of counter-revolution, are now arming the opposition. The obvious question here is that if these countries were champions of freedom and democracy, why are their own political systems so anti-democratic and authoritarian, especially in Saudi Arabia, one of the most important bulwarks of the armed opposition. I feel bad for the Syrian people on the street who are stuck between these counter-revolutionary forces and the murderous Ba’ath regime.
