In the meantime our only truly steadfast ally in the world is Israel. They will have the military resources to intervene if directly threatened, which I doubt they are, and we have the military power to contain the civil war combatants if they wanted to export their war.
Last time I checked Syria was embroiled in their own civil war. I wish them God Speed in resolution.
In the meantime without a functional Congress and respected president, the U.S. is well-advised to pass up on this one.
