First of all this means that the Gulf States will finance the rebels to purchase loads of US military hardware they don't need and can't use. The US military after 10 years in Iraq and Afghan couldn't win with it either... Then the rebels will be trained how to use 'overwhelming firepower' to defeat the enemy, and how to hide behind firepower 'the US way' since WW2'. This didn't win in Iraq or Afghan either, but the US military has a one track mind; 'shoot fastest with the mostest (expenditure of ammo) and you'll win (or at least the arms manufacturrs will). In the meantime Iran will be planning VLT (generational?) asymmetric warfare should Assad fail, which is still by no means certain. So more Gulf resourced US armed conflict. Iran and the US will still be fighting in Syria wuith proxies when there are no more Syrians left to kill. And if Assad should fall what would replace him? A Saudi Wahhabi/Salafist/al-Qaeda combination? A Jihadist salad? Or maybe Generals Sherman/McArthur and Eisenhower with John Wayne at the head will ride into Damascus on white horses and proclaim 'Liberation 1945 ala Baghdad...' Followed by McD and Walmart ... in their dreams. And Kerry will invent another country - possibly Assyrica? A mess is a mess is a mess...
