      at least I hope so-

      Shock the sponsors of the proxy warring factions to realize that no one is going to get everything they want, and it is better to come to table now, before this thing gets further out of hand, find an accommodation everyone can live with, one that deescalates the conflict.

      Western Europe wants a trans syria gas pipeline to get out from under Russian gas monopoly, Russia wants to keep their pricing power.  That can be worked out.

      Iran wants to remain a regional player.

      Saudi wants its militant salafists outside of Saudi

      Qatar is on a quest for regional leadership.

      Assad wants to stay in power

      The folks in Syria want and end to conflict and some reforms.

      Tomahawks won't help, diplomacy might.
