The blame for this civil war does lie with the global hegemon and her minions in the region. First of all , you need to remember that the invasion and destruction Iraq deprived the region of one of the most modernizing influences in the region. Similar to what happened in Syria and Libya.

Iraq was having more female professors in the Baghdad university even in the 1980-s than many other places in the civilized West. Qaddafi's Libya was the most prosperous state in the whole of Africa.

Baghdad before the invasion had regular Shia-Sunni marriages and the sectarian view was never there.

Unfortunately the hegemon and her minions had other ideas. They wanted the region to disintegrate and be destroyed so that it can be controlled according to the interestes of the hegemon and her minions.

Now that the hegemon and the minions have got their wish realized , the civilizing people in the region needs to think about the aftermath.

The aftermath can only be good. Because the "civil war" has exposed the faults in the hegemon and her minions.

The hegemon is fearful of fielding troops as they fear of death. Her minions have been unable to do much more else. In Yemen recently , just a new of civil war was enough to make the Western troops (thousands of them) to flee the scene in panic and disarray.

The Muslims in the region have done the necessary suffering (Western sanctions , invasions and now the hegemon imposed civil war) and now they do not fear death. Once they emerge victorious from their civil war , they will come back to the conquest role.

To end , the blame for whatever is happening in Damascus can be blamed directly at the doorstep of the hegemon and her minions. Who do you think created IS or AQ for that matter ?

Take care
