The great news coming out the Syrian crisis would be a win for everyone.
A win for the Syrian people, first and foremost, who would no longer be gassed by their government.
A win for the United States and its allies in not having to bomb the Syrian weapon capacity.
A win for the Russians in showing that they have the power to help, and actually helping.
It is probably also a win, if only temporary, for the Syrian the dictatorship, in showing that they are slightly less awful than they could possibly be.
This is not a done deal, of course, but it certainly would be happy news if it can be brought home.
