The main reasons the West don't want anything to do with the Syrian opposition are twofold. One reason is that we are wary of engaging in another mid-east conflict. Another is that we are watching the way the opposition prosecutes their war, and are disturbed to discover that there is little or no difference between the opposition fighters and the terrorists we are already fighting. If suicide terrorism is among your tactics, you can go straight to hell as far as we're concerned. We are not interested in helping to place the Duras Family in charge of the Klingon Empire. There is a neutral zone to consider.
