It depends on the Syrian people and the people of the surrounding nations and the people of the U.S. The great irony is that U.S. gov't interferes with the peaceful process by picking sides in the internal conflicts of middle-eastern nations. We cannot support middle-eastern peace if the grassroots of every nation in the region does not support peace. The grassroots made a larger first step towards peace in that region by sanctioning the U.S. from using force in Syria. It wasn't the administration! The Russian peace initiatives only occurred because of a casual word by John Kerry that allowed the U.S. administration to save face with its own people!
