The World This Week - December 13th, 2013 (part 2)

After intervening in Mali, France is now involved in another former African colony on the brink of collapse. Also, the tide has certainly turned in Syria. This week, Washington and London suspended non-lethal aid to Syria's opposition after rival Islamic rebel brigades seized warehouses containing US military gear intended for the main Western-backed rebel group.
