Here's a plan to end the conflict in Syria: Support Assad

There is a well-known maxim in American politics: a bad plan beats no plan. That surely has been proven the case in Syria, because neither opposition groups nor their external supporters, most especially the United States government, ever had an effective plan for removing the tenacious dictator. The U.S. should back Assad now, end the fighting, and set conditions for his departure and a democratic transition.
