Syria: Set up for failure

with 2 comments

“Syria” has “accepted” the Arab League request to send observers into the country. Whether this means the regime has accepted the whole Arab League package (ceasefire, allowing media into the country, dialogue with opposition, etc.) remains to be seen.

Here’s the type of thing that seems likely to happen:

Arab leaders had given Syria a new deadline of Sunday to respond to the League’s plan, which calls for the admission of observers to ensure compliance with a government cease-fire. They also held out the threat of pushing for U.N. involvement if Damascus balks.

Call me a skeptic, but it seems to me that if Syria doesn’t do exactly what the Arab League wants, it’s another “balk” (like this one), and it’s one more reason to condemn the Alawite regime.
