Syrian Situation=Pretty Simple

It's about geo-political economics. Please pardon my huge edit of this, my original post, I had the specifics wrong.

Qatar wants to run a huge LNG pipe-line from Qatar, through Saudi Arabia, Iraq and Syria, to Turkey. This would crush the Russian LNG industry that is the leading supplier of LNG to Europe.

So, Assad, being a Russian ally and not signing to allow the pipeline through his country, has to go.
