More importantly, the Vienna process launched six weeks ago needs to start saving Syrian lives.Since Aug. 18, 2011, when President Barack Obama called upon Syrian President Bashar Assad to step aside, the American objective with respect to Syria has been one of regime change. No need to offend the supreme leader over Syria.The administration – with Messrs. Obama and Kerry in the lead – has stated clearly and eloquently why a role for Assad and his regime (the balance of the ruling family and its key enablers) in Syria's political transition is absurdly inadmissible.Desperately lacking a sufficient ground combat component in Syria in its battle against Daesh, the administration dreams of a Syrian government-nationalist rebel united front against the self-proclaimed caliph and calculates – quite correctly – that the dream cannot materialize with the Barrel Bomber in Chief either at the helm or in the ranks.Indeed, the P5 agreement reached in Geneva in June 2012 – the "Action Group for Syria Final Communique" – was a blueprint for peaceful regime change in Syria.
