The latest on Syria: The Massacre in Homs
The Massacre in Homs, Syria of anti-government protestors sparked a protest at the Syrian Embassy in London. By the end of next week, the UN will act, ordering President Bashar al-Assad to leave office. If he continues to resist, the Arab League will have to act or forfeit its right to self-control in the region. (Tongue in cheek)
“Arrests at Syrian embassy protest
Protesters descended on the embassy in Belgrave Square early on Saturday morning
Six people were arrested during a protest at the Syrian embassy in London overnight, police say.
The Met said about 150 protesters had gathered at 02:00 GMT after reports of more than 200 people being killed by shelling in the Syrian city of Homs.
Five people remained in custody after being arrested for forcing entry into the embassy, and the sixth for assaulting an officer.
Demonstrators said police prevented them from leaving the protest site.
BBC correspondent Andrew Plant said he saw about 30 protesters being held in a cordon, with no signs of trouble.
Reports of the bloodshed in Homs, which cannot be independently verified, come as the UN Security Council prepares to vote later on a resolution backing an Arab League peace plan for Syria.
The draft resolution calls on President Bashar al-Assad to hand power to a deputy to oversee a transition.”

The Arab League had no effect on Iraq, Libya, Egypt, Palestinian Authority, or Lebanon. So what is the point of their being? Someone from that organization must answer that question.
