"Even with the Muslim Brotherhood threat they have fought off for years now in Syria?"
I don't know how credible the Muslim Brotherhood overthrowing the Syrian government stories are. They seem to be the boogeyman behind all of these ME government topplings. It's true, they are a serious threat to take over in Egypt. Beyond that, I'm suspicious of their influence in the other countries. Let's also keep in mind that the Muslim Brotherhood are also Sunni like Assaad and not Shiite like the Mullahs in Iran. I've never read stories where Iran and the Muslim Brotherhod have worked together before.

It’s been said the Muslim Brotherhood layed low and became “moderate” in their thinking concerning radical Islam....but in fact simply have waited until the opportunity rises to move forward with their agenda to set in place Islamic rule. So there’s differences today of who and what they really are. Either or they are not good news as far as I can see. Not that Assad is any better but at least he’s established an International Presence where other nations have been able to negotiate somewhat with him.
I do understand though, that Syrians can be very brutal in warfare and not to be taken lightly.
