The Arab League has announced it's reached a deal with Syria on easing the country's long-running political crisis. The agreement urges Damascus to immediately withdraw security forces from the streets, release jailed demonstrators, and start dialogue with the opposition. Syria also agreed to allow rights groups and Arab League watchdogs into the country. But the US still says it wants to see President Assad resign. Independent journalist James Corbett says the Western focus on Syria is part of a much bigger game.
