Arab League Suspends Syria

By on 11.13.11 | 12:15AM

In a surprise move, the Arab League suspended Syria. The suspension will take effect on November 16th.

Back in February, the Arab League suspended Libya which spurred the UN Security Council to approve a no fly zone and NATO into a military intervention which resulted in Muammar Gadhaffi being removed from power.

Could the same happen in Syria? I doubt it. If you take action against Syria, you're taking action against Iran and I can't see Russia and China approving any substantial measures against Syria at the Security Council.
