ANALYSIS/OPINION:

The 22-nation Arab League finally put some teeth into its act and imposed heavy economic, financial and political sanctions on another Arab nation, Syria.

It remains to be seen whether the league’s actions will stop the bloodshed in Syria, where President Bashar Assad has brutally and ruthlessly murdered more than 3,500 pro-democracy demonstrators over the past eight months.

Either way, Syria will be isolated more than ever, which is bound to have a profound impact on the nation.
