BBC News - Syria unrest: 'Deadly military attack' on Latakia port
The story is about the ME, but my questions are about what the rest of the world is expected to do about it, which is why this isn't in the ME forum.Originally Posted by BBC
Given the uprising in Syria and comparing it with the uprising in Libya, why hasn't the U.S. and the U.N. as well as the Arab league decided to intervene? Logically, it seems to be a very similar situation and I'm asking the question not in support of such an intervention but I'm trying to find some consistency between the U.S., U.N. and Arab League but find none. Given that humanitarian groups have confirmed ships off the coast are shelling inland, hasn't this now escalated to a humanitarian effort?
