    Assad isn't interested in what the UN or anybody else has to say, all he cares about is his own survival. He saw how his father massacred 40,000 Syrians and Hama and that's the tactics he is hoping to use, beat them into submission by killing. He also feels safe except for his internal enemies because Russia & China will protect him in the Security Council and even if the Security Council do vote in favor of taking action unless its military force he isn't interested anyway. The west also have no stomach to use military force because they take his threats to set the region alight seriously, he also has chemical weapons. Right now the Arab League don want to use military force against a fellow arab state ( Gaddafi wasn't an arab ) so he feels secure. He will let observers in then he will keep killing and they will leave just like they did last time, he is playing for time that's all. His other problem is he has dug himself into a hole because if he stops fighting he will be toppled and probably end up being executed in a mickey mouse trial and if he wants to leave and go into exile there are very few places for him to go where he can feel comfortable at least and his options are limited if he wants to avoid being put in the international criminal courts. So Assad couldn't care less if the UN dreamed up a new Goldstone. The only thing that's going to stop Assad is when somebody puts a bullet in his head. Personally I think his next move will be to talk Hezbollah into provoking a war with Israel get the Syrian peoples anger focused on the zionist entity giving him time to work out his next move and hopefully while they are focused on Israel the momentum for regime change will end when the war does.
