Al-Jazeera Video: More deaths reported in Syria
I believe that a replay of what happened in Libya is in the works. Turkey, with the support of the Arab League, will lead the effort to authorize an "international" campaign of intervention, just as in Libya.
There is surprising support for such intervention, with the current Al-Jazeera online poll showing over 65% support for such intervention.
"Activists say that five people have been killed by security forces in Syria.
The regional governments have also issued their strongest condemnation yet of the government's violence against protesters.
The Arab League foreign ministers met in Egypt and gave this warning to President Bashar Al Assad:
"The council stresses the importance of ending bloodshed and to resort to reason before it's too late."
