What Stops the World From Taking Out Assad?

Since Syrian crimes can be classified as "crimes against humanity" especially because they are state policy, why has Right to Protect not been invoked by the international community nor has reasonable action been undertaken by the Security Council and the ICC? The answer is simple: politics and personal interest. Without exception, it is believed that the atrocities committed by Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and his regime are far worse than those of Muammar Gaddafi. The UN estimates more than 3,500 people have been murdered; tens of thousands have vanished and are believed to be incarcerated.
