Assad signed a protocol for allowing Arab observers to enter the country even as his killing machine continued its operations. The move was not a concession, but another stalling tactic. Assad was just granted several weeks of respite in which he can do pretty much what he wants, knowing that nothing will take place in the meantime on the regional or international scene to hurt him. Thanks Arab League!

With the emergence of Bassam Imadi on the scene, there will be four main currents competing inside the SNC: Burhane Ghalioun’s chosen assortment of leftwing figures, Ahmad Ramadan’s assortment of “independent” Islamists, many of whom former Muslin Brother hood members, the Muslim Brotherhood itself, and Imadi’s new group.

And what difference can the FSA make, if it fails to get all the emerging paramilitary groups to accept the authority of its Military Council and its leader?" Ammar Abdulhamid, a U.S.-based Syrian dissident who has been critical of the SNC said recently.

"So long as SNC leaders remain more preoccupied with winning international recognition than they are with internal cohesion or outreach to their own people, they are destined to become as irrelevant and cut-off from realities as Assad is today," he said.
