They seem to want it both ways.
But I hope all involved will err on the side of protecting innocent civilians first and foremost. Thanks Cal.

It appears that the Arab League has sided against the existing regime. It will be interesting to see how this plays out!

The problem with Syria (leaving aside the foreign policy problems) is that it's not another Libya, with the regime on one side and the people on the other; it's more like Iraq, with rival tribes whose definition of liberation is to be free to start killing their neighbours. The "innocent civillians" you protect are likely to turn round and attack some other civillians who will then need to protected from them. Calling World Police!

Syria is in such a mess I think we will hear that Assad is behind these protests trying to start a counter revolution of some type.

Arab League instead of taking such drastic action should have shown some patience and pursued Syrian Govt to negotiation table rather then cancelling their member ship which will not be of any help

Alawites are a minority in Syria, so if Assad goes - they will be in a big trouble.

Brenda, the Arab League did negotiate with the Syrian Government, who promised an immediate end to violence, then went right on killing civilians. What else can you do with a regime who treat negotiations as a way to play for time?
