Idea for Syria

Presuming reports are correct that the Assad regime has used WMD against the Syrian people, why not provide the free Syria opposition with NBC suits, gas masks, and antidotes for themselves and civilians in the areas that they control, along with training (perhaps carried out in Turkey and/or Jordan) in how to use them? This protective apparatus can never be turned against the West and the nations the West supports as weapons aid to the rebels could be, yet, this non-lethal help could turn the tide and help replace Assad with leaders who might respect human rights.
