The US is damned if we do, damned if we don't. If we don't help, we aren't doing enough and are critisized; if we do, we are nation building and putting our troops in harm's way. The best solution would be to declare the Al-Assad regime a terrorist organization and test out our shiny new drones on them like with AQ in Yemen. The main obstacle, as others have said, is that Russia is backing Al-Assad. Take that piece of the puzzle away, and our drones will eat the regime for breakfast. However, easier said than done in dealing with the Russians.
