If Iran and Hezbollah really got involved in the conflict and wanted to take care of the "rebels" then believe me there would have been nothing left of those animal savages and their entire supporters, and then some...Not to mention Russia's role in that case....We definitely don't want another WW,but it looks like some still do.
During the 2011–2012 Syrian uprising, a new constitution was put to a referendum. Amongst other changes, it abolished the old article 8 which entrenched the power of the Ba'ath party. The new article 8 reads: "The political system is based on the principle of political pluralism, and rule is only obtained and exercised democratically through voting."; in a new article 88, it introduced presidential elections and limited the term of office for the president to seven years with a maximum of one re-election.
In 2013, Syria is divided between two governments, both of which make contested claims to be the only democratic government of Syria. A bitter civil war between the two has raged through 2012 and 2013 following a period of unarmed demonstrations and unrest in 2011, which was part of the international wave of protest known as the Arab Spring.
The Baathist government, headed by Bashar Assad, son of previous leader Hafez Assad, is based in Damascus, the traditional capital. The Free Syrian government is conducting its first regional elections in early March 2013 for Aleppo, Syria’s largest city and main commercial hub. Due to fighting, the elections are being held by 200+ representatives in Ghazi, Turkey.
We must create an atmosphere where peoples of the region can decide their own fates. As part of this, I announce my government’s readiness to help facilitate dialogue between the Syrian government and the opposition.”
Jamil had told the British daily that if the armed opposition in Syria accepts the ceasefire, it would have to be monitored “under international observation.” He added that such supervision could be provided by UN peacekeepers, assuming they came from friendly or neutral countries.
Jamil said that outside powers must stop trying to influence the outcome of events in Syria. He added that the Syrian government would be pushing to “end external intervention, a ceasefire and the launching of a peaceful political process in a way that the Syrian people can enjoy self-determination without outside intervention and in a democratic way.”
Stop the Rebeles, Stop Siryan Government, Make Elections. Give voice to the Syrian People.

Sounds really good on paper but in reality, to make it happen would entail another Iraq War and we all know how that worked out.
