US, China, Russia, UK got together in a room. They decided, lets take Syria over completely and we'll divide it up 4 ways. They all agreed.
US, China, Russia, UK = 25% shares each
So that's what we're seeing right now.

Iran is the target. Everyone except the USA cares about Iranian oil. The USA cares about that oil being pegged to the dollar. As long as Syria stands as an Iranian ally, drastic actions against Iran will meet with too much resistance to pull off the hit without letting too many people know why Iran is being hit. That's the sort of thing that causes revolutions, and revolutions are very bad things if you are the one being revolted against.
Russia wants the USA out of the Middle East, period. They're tired of us manipulating oil prices and interfering in their relations with oil rich nations. China wants Iran's oil for their growing economy, as does India. If we hit Iran, that jeopardizes their position in the world market. So they see clearly what we are up to in Syria, and they don't want this stage one operation to continue.
Because stage two involves some really nasty things.
