ABSTRACT
The article makes a case against U.S. intervention in the Syrian conflict. It argues that the conflict is a sectarian war in the volatile Middle east region and that U.S. intervention would threaten American interests in the region. The article also comments that the only viable solution is to seek the support of Russia and China for holding elections sponsored by the United Nations (UN) in which President Basshar Assad might be persuaded not to participate.
