Aaand the Arab League finally votes sanctions on Libya. Turkey promises to back up whatever the League does here.

This is a big deal -- the Arab League applying political pressure to a member to clean up its human-rights record. Or, put another way, putting itself on one side, at the beginning, of an inevitable civil war. But, either way, trying to solve this as a matter of regional interest without involving the Western powers directly. Is that a new development? Has it ever been done before?
