    The Arab League announced Saturday that it is suspending Syria's membership after its failure to stop the violence against its people...

    ...The punitive measures come after al-Assad's failure to abide by an Arab League proposal earlier this month to halt all violence, release detainees, withdraw armed elements from populated areas and allow unfettered access to the nation by journalists and Arab League monitors.

    ...The U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights said earlier this week that more than 3,500 people have been killed in the brutal suppression of dissent since the Syrian uprising began eight months ago.

    Why doesn't Turkey, Israel or Jordan (or all of them) go in and take care of business in their neighborhood? Why not the Arab League themselves? Can't KofSA, Egypt and some other heavy-hitters put a dent in Assad?

    Syria has as big a military as any of those other countries and are allied with Iran and Hezbollah.
