The chief of the monitoring contingent Mustafa Al- Dabi said "Some places looked a bit of a mess but there was nothing frightening," during his visit to Homs, the city activists say is the epicenter of nine months of deadly clashes with government forces.
Syrian activists have criticised the choice of Mustafa al-Dabi, a Sudanese general, to head the Arab League's observer mission to Syria.Al-Dabi is a staunch loyalist of Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir, who is wanted by the International Criminal Court for genocide committed in Darfur.
Al-Dabi was Sudan's military intelligence chief, and was sent to Darfur to quell the unrest there. He is accused of creating the Arab militias known as the Janjaweed.

I just watched an interview about this on ABC with the head of peoples rights in Syria. He said that the revolt was eventually going to turn to civil war if there was no intervention.. Because there isn't a viable financial gain I highly doubt that will happen and so this civil war will probably envelop more of the surrounding countries. Hopefully something gets done about this but I really don't think something will be done.
