NATO: No Syrian Intervention

The head of NATO, Anders Fogh Rasmussen, has emphatically denied any plans for the alliance to intervene in Syria. Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad has killed thousands of civilians in a brutal crackdown to his rule. Thousands more have been summarily arrested or tortured.
“My answer is very short. NATO has no intention (to intervene) whatsoever. I can completely rule that out,” he told reporters.
“Having said that, I strongly condemn the crackdown on the civilian population in Syria. What has happened in Libya sends a clear signal. You cannot neglect the will of the people.”
Meanwhile, the Arab League has been calling for a roadmap to end the violence. So far it has fallen on deaf ears.
