Caricature of Hillary Clinton
From the latest reports by investigative journalist Rick Sterling  and investigative historian Eric Zuesse  , it's becoming increasingly clear once Hillary Clinton becomes president-seemingly all but assured considering the relentless attacks by US corporate MSM demonizing and short circuiting Donald trump's candidacy, the all but complete media blackout of Green Party candidate Jill Stein, except for CNN's one hour town hall meeting broadcast last week, plus the endless stream of endorsements from neo-cons, former generals to Obama, her "coronation" could bring a US escalation of the war in Syria early in her administration.
Even the Pentagon has chimed in with some tell-tale "warnings" of its latest intentions in Syria with, "the USA is ready to down Syrian and Russian planes that...threaten American advisors. We would continue to advise the Syrian regime to steer clear of these areas where US advisors are located. We are going to defend our people on the ground and do what we need to defend them." 
Last week former acting director of the CIA, Mike Morell interviewed by Charlie Rose indicated the US should make the Iranian's and Russian's "pay a price", killing them but done "covertly" not for the Pentagon to announce it to the world, "but make sure they know it in Moscow and Tehran". Morell formerly came out and endorsed Hillary for president.
As for Clinton herself, she's repeatedly called for a "no-fly zone" and a "safe zone" in Syria which are nothing more than "safe zones" for al Qaeda, ISIS terrorists supported by the US eventually bring regime change in Syria. She advocated bombing of Syria after the 2013 Sarin gas attack in Ghouta, Syria-blaming Syrian President Bashar Assad for the attack. Her accusation was later refuted with evidence pointing to Jihadists being the perpetrators with the intention of getting Obama to bomb Syria. She has continued the call "Assad must go", called Putin the new "Hitler", asserted Iran is behind much of the terrorism in the Middle East. Blatant falsehoods of course but revealing her dangerous blood lust out to prove how tough she is, yet all done with R2P, "responsibility to protect" spin.
So with the onslaught from the likes of the New York Times, Washington Post, other "news" outlets continuing to demonize Russian President Vladimir Putin, even interfering with the US election "favoring" Trump, plus condemning Iran and Hezbollah for aiding Assad in Syria, comes the 51 State Department so called "diplomats" calling for "targeted military strikes" against the Assad government-an internal memo conveniently leaked then published in the Wall Street Journal.
It's hard to remember such a broad based propaganda barrage for increasing the war in Syria except the 2002, 2003 rush to war by "Dubya" Bush and his legion of abetting war mongers-including Hillary-thirsting for the head of Iraq's Saddam Hussein and his alleged WMD.
Yet there are some potentially important scenarios should they occur could deter even a mad, war monger Clinton presidency.
Turkey's Recip Erdogan could close the border with Syria thus ending the cross border infiltration of mercenary Jihadists and material that have entered Syria uninterrupted since the war began in 2011. With Erdogan having met Putin two weeks ago in St. Petersburg, Russia, this after the failed coup against him which he all but blamed on the CIA, he could be ready to side with Russia regarding Syria and support Assad.
The current battle for Aleppo needs to be won by Assad's Syrian Arab Army with the military assistance of Russia, Iran and Hezbollah. Al Qaeda, ISIS must be forcibly extricated from eastern Aleppo thereby freeing the indigenous Syrian residents from the merciless head-choppers.
Thus whatever remnants of ISIS, al Qaeda mercenary Jihadists remaining in the country would wither, particularly if reinforcements of men and material were cut off from flowing through Turkey into Syria.
Then with Assad firmly in control of Damascus, Aleppo and all the populous residential areas in between, essential stability would be restored in the country so new elections could be held in early 2017.
Subsequently, after new elections are held, Assad or whoever is elected president of Syria could-before all the world to see-request the US withdraw all its military "advisors" from the country.
