a Syrian split

The Arab League and Syria have agreed to extend the monitoring mission for another month. But this extension will take place with a smaller monitoring force, as  Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, the United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Bahrain and Oman have decided to withdraw their 55 observers "because of continuing bloodshed in Syria and the government's 'lack of commitment' to adhere fully to the plan it agreed to with the Arab League."

Those states also called the U.N. Security Council "to ratchet up pressure on the regime...to support the Arab League's Syrian initiative by passing a resolution."

CNN reports that the U.N may call for international sanctions against Syrian authorities, similar to those set by the Arab League 3 months ago.  Other than that, it seems that the U.N won't be doing much more at present.
Which means that Syria shall continue to enjoy the freedom of slaughtering citizens without real disturbance. 
CNN quoted a report by a syrian citizen, describing events in Hama: 
"I have a relative who saw missiles coming into the city early morning yesterday, three tanks and one armor were seen near Bab Al Qibly neighborhood, which is still surrounded with army forces until now, bombing is heard continuously since the morning, this neighborhood is being attacked since then because mass demonstrations were held the under the protection of Free Syrian Army."
I have said it before and I say it again: it is International intervention time.
