The Arab League, Iraq and Stopping Violence in Syria

Hosted by

The Arab League, Iraq and Stopping Violence in Syria This week's Arab League Summit may not be a summit at all without a major figure from Saudi Arabia, and the League may not reach consensus on Syria, its most troubling issue. But it's a big moment for Baghdad, the first such meeting it's hosted since Saddam Hussein invaded Kuwait more than 20 years ago. Is the League more important in the aftermath of the so-called "Arab Spring?" Can it reach a consensus on how to prevent more civilian bloodshed in Syria?
