Syrian opposition opens embassy in Qatar

Syria's opposition opened an embassy Wednesday in Doha, Qatar, a day after Arab League representatives meeting there allowed the rebels to take Syria's seat at the summit.

The embassy is the first for the Syrian National Coalition, which has been recognized by more than 100 nations as the legitimate representative of the Syrian people.

    Im confused. If the coalition is the recognized legitimate representatives of Syria, why is Al Assad still there? Cant he be removed by now already?

    The 'opposition' or 'rebels' comprised mostly of outside elements including Al-Qaeda, mercenaries etc are in a state of disarray. Infighting for control & such.
