Egypt Said to Arm Libya Rebels

CAIRO--Egypt's military has begun shipping arms over the border to Libyan rebels with Washington's knowledge, U.S. and Libyan rebel officials said.

The shipments--mostly small arms such as assault rifles and ammunition--appear to be the first confirmed case of an outside government arming the rebel fighters.

Now they need to up the ante with shipments of anti-aircraft missiles, anti-tank missiles, artillery, armor, and logistic support.

And then we have a nice big war, and then the arms remain ... in whose hands? I can't help feeling unueasy about this.
