The top priority today is cornering the mullahs in iran, giving Assad a break is only rational if Assad agrees to stop collaborating with IRI and evict the Hezbollah, otherwise let them spend another decade fighting sectarian wars until the get sick of Islam as a whole. Even if Assad falls, there won't be a settlement between the Sunnis and the Alawites anytime soon, however the balance of power will shift to the Sunny and the only ultimate peaceful resolution is a secular democratic alternative that would recognize the human rights of all Syrians regardless of their religion, sect or ethnicity, if their society is not civilized enough and doesn't have the capacity and tolerance for a democratic and equal rights enforcing government, let them suffer and learn that lesson the hard way. It was Assad and his IRI masters who stated the new wave of sectarianism when they created the Hezbollah in Lebanon and fueled sectarian civil war in Iraq to undermine US efforts, let them pay the price, they deserve it, if Assad fails mullahs will be next.
