Arab League 'to suspend' Syrians


www.bbc.co.uk

The Arab League is to suspend Syria over its failure to end a government crackdown on protesters, officials say

A previous Arab League proposal - accepted by the government of President Bashar al-Assad - envisaged the start of dialogue with the Syrian opposition.

But the clampdown has continued, and the UN says more than 3,500 people have died in the protests so far.

This is very significant, and could also non directly pave the way for NATO "liberation" in the not to distant future.

The ambassadors of the Arab league have also been asked to return to their countries (from Syria)

IMHO this is a very differant tiger than Egypt or Libya, and in an already very troubled region.

I doubt Bashar will step down in any way at all.

There was also a large protest at the summit as shown below:

Well this was breaking when posted some more info coming out.


The league has called for sanctions against Syria as the organisation held an emergency meeting to address the rising civilian death toll.

The 22-nation body has called on the country's army to stop its involvement in the killing of civilians, said Qatar's PM, and the group has reportedly invited the opposition to transition talks.

Foreign ministers from the league convened in Cairo amid calls for the regime to be suspended for its continuing clampdown on demonstrators.
SKY

SKY news reported on TV that the Arab League has invited opposition parties to meet for "Transition Talks" and to cease killing civilians.

So the writing is then on the wall for Bashar.
But he knows that as the following shows:

On another note, the family members of Assad regime officials have been fleeing the country as over a hundred security, army, and government cars are seen daily at the Aleppo International Airport, with mostly women and children accompanying massive loads of luggage. According to airport employees, most of the passports are Lattakia issued, and most of the flights are fully booked departing to Malaysia, Iran, UAE, China, Ghana, and Nigeria.
HRW

He wont go though I doubt very much.

Maybe an UN resolution within 14 days and NATO within?
Well many of you, and probably Bashar think the UN will be veto'd by Russia and/or China, and probably so.

However as recent events have shown NATO is now the Wests "stick" rather than the security council, and as the days old testimony to congress by Jeffrey D. Feltman ssistant Secretary, Bureau of Near Eastern Affairs
Senate Foreign Relations Committee, Subcommittee on Near Eastern and South and Central Asian Affairs said on November the 9th the long game plan is very well known if hidden in the political niceties:


But if Russia and China cynically continue to stand in the way of international efforts to end the violence in Syria, the United States and other allies of the Syrian people will consider other steps to ensure the Syrian people are protected. The UN is one important channel but not the only one.


Well that's pretty clear if just one paragraph of the testimony lol and further:


Nevertheless, we will continue our efforts to convince Russia, China, India, Brazil, and South Africa to change their positions regarding sanctions against Syria, and we will encourage our Arab allies and the Syrian opposition to aggressively engage with those countries as well.
US Dept of State - US Policy on Syria

We all know what that means really so its just now a matter of time.

This news will get into Syria and the uprisings more, his crackdowns more in response but isolated, but will he be so by Russia? Iran? China even?

This is an very old and well entrenched cold war line there are still strong links with Russia, as said I feel this could be very dangerous compared to recent "transitions" for many reasons.

I certainly will be watching this closely.

Its only sanctions and suspending them from meetings.

Syria is still part of the Arab league

the next move that might follow is that the arab league will not recognise the assad government

In the future we may see a joint arab-turkish operation

Only?

Well in fact also all the diplomats have been withdrawn, sanctions imposed.

Well they don't seem to recognise him anymore, as they are asking loud and clear for meetings with the Opposition Groups to prepare for an Syria without Assad.


"We are calling all Syrian opposition parties to a meeting at the Arab League headquarters to agree a unified vision for the transitional period."


An transition period is the toppling of Assad by either internal uprising or this coupled with NATO fire power, and no fly zones are being called for already, which will lead to as always then taking out "tanks" on the ground attacking civilians.


It is a huge blow to Syria's pride, and could also be a real practical blow to its leaders, our correspondent adds.

But opposition groups are already calling for more action, he says, including a no-fly zone.

Qatari Prime Minister Sheikh Hamad Bin Jassim said the suspension would take effect on Wednesday, adding that talks would be held with Syrian opposition groups in three days' time.
BBC

To be in any doubt where this is going, esp with the last US troops out of Iraq officially next month is imho a bit naive.

Arab League..right..now if that term isn't the joke of the millennium.

There is no such thing as an Arab League, it was purely injected into the social interaction sid to enable an idea to gain a solid foundation without it being able to defend itself.

Nato can try intervention and NATO will cease to exist in 15 minutes.Russia has a base in syria.

Arab league-what are they capable of?nothing.....

there are no uprising except attacks by muslim brotherhood armed by turkey. Turkey needs a nice chemical attack by Syria.NATO can try save Turkey from the wrath of Russia and it will be fun when freemasons are vaporized or turn tail and abandon turkey.

NATO will not intervene when their mission it seems is working anyways.
They can bring down Assad internally by maintaining the protests which will force the Govt to keep fighting for control.

if he could have they would have already. they would be working overtime to ensure the destruction of our civilization, but they can't. they have limited power in their region.

Russia is more of an observer until acted upon.

Arab League suspends Syria - RT


In turn, Syria's representative to the Arab League, Youssef Ahmed, said the decision to suspend Damascus violated the organization's charter and showed it was “serving a Western and American agenda,” reports Reuters.

Ahmed told Syrian state television that the move to suspend Syria would only have been valid if taken by consensus at a summit meeting of Arab leaders, whereas it was in fact opposed by two delegates at the Arab League meeting.

The League has also warned Syria that it could face sanctions if it fails to end the violence. However, Bin Jassim stressed that "no-one is talking about a no-fly zone – people are trying to mix up the cases. None of us is talking about this kind of decision." In February, the LAS suspended Libya’s membership and went on to propose the enforcement of a no-fly zone over the country.



The Responsibility to Protect – The Cases of Libya and Ivory Coast (Marjorie Cohn)



There is a double standard in the use of military force to protect civilians. Obama has not attacked Bahrain where lethal force is being used to quell anti-government protests because that is where the U.S. Fifth Fleet is stationed. In fact, the Asia Times reported that before the invasion of Libya, the United States made a deal with Saudi Arabia, whereby the Saudis would invade Bahrain to help put down the anti-democracy protestors and Saudi Arabia would enlist the support of the Arab League for a no-fly-zone over Libya.

The League’s support for a no-fly-zone effectively neutralized opposition from Russia and China to Security Council Resolution 1973. Moreover, the military action by the U.S., France and Britain has gone far beyond a no-fly-zone. Indeed, Obama, France’s President Nicolas Sarkozy and Britain’s David Cameron penned an op-ed in the International Herald Tribune that said the NATO force will fight in Libya until President Muammar Qaddafi is gone, even though the Resolution does not sanction forcible regime change.


US is indirectly manipulating the Arab League into supporting its middle east reforms, which seem to be effective in bypassing UN opposition from Russia and China.

We're one of the largest muslim nations in the world....according to one of Obama's speeches.


How come the Arab League isn't suspending America for all the protestors/dissidents/political activists who get killed in our country every year?

We've got more of our population in PRISON...than any country on Earth.

Syria should just adopt our practices/methods. Appears the Arab League likes our ways.
