No, it doesn’t take two to tango. It takes Assad being advised and encouraged by his Russian and Iranian allies not to deal with the original protesters and try to implement some reforms. Now it’s a mess, and it’s entirely the fault of Assad and his allies.

Well, the revolutionaries are being abetted by the Saudis and Gulf State Sheikhs, and are connected with al Quaeda. They aren’t interested in compromising, and I don’t think they ever were.

I have long thought that Assad and Syria were a serious problem. Back after Bush nailed Saddam, I thought that he should have taken the Syrian government out, although there was a limit to how much he could do with the Dems and the press pulling another anti-Vietnam type protest against him. But I now think the current uprising represents dark forces that are even worse. It would be disastrous for the remaining Christians in Syria and Lebanon.
