The world has already demanded he step down to no avail. So what is the UN going to be able to do?
I don't even see what the point of the observation was as they were not allowed to move around freely.
The world knows what is needed here, but nobody wants to be the first to say it,

I know Russia is supplying arms to Assad, I don't know where China enters the picture, the Arabs don't want to upset the apple cart any more than it already is, and Russia and China make any interference rather unlikely - I wouldn't want to be in Hillary's shoes on this one! I suspect as always, it's the oil dependency and the threats of war and restrictions imposed by sanctions and the difficulties re Strait of Hormuz - we can't afford another war and Iran and Syria know this as do Russia and China - I reiterate - wouldn't want to be in Hillary's shoes (does she wear heels or flats?)

Diplomacy is one thing, we are now in the arena of stupidity.The Arab League Chief has gone to the UN to ask for support in taking Assad down. How many people have to continually die before these people don't look any more ridiculous than they are?

The real power and authority against Assad and his continued campaign of brutality is with the Arab League. They now want to toss the ball back to the UN, they need to get their act together and squash Assad like the bug he is, enough discussions, enough death - those in that gang of self appointed demigods need to put up or sling away in shame.
