With Russia and NATO stepping up the pressure, the conflict will intensify. Who has the resolve, willingness , resources, and capacity? If the Rebels are to prevail, the US's half measures will not suffice. If the game is to have no one prevail, this cynical option will not work, since Iran and Russia are there to win.
