This is a multi-sided civil war, with numerous outsiders getting involved with their own agendas.
Which opposition do you mean? Who are the ''good guys'' - are there any?
We are now in the situation where the original bad guys are now the goodies ((Assad) and the good guys are now the baddies, with some of the baddies worse than the other baddies, with some baddies changing sides, some baddies fighting everyone else and so on and so on.
In comparison it makes the Spanish Civil War and its various Republican factions look like a relatively simple matter to explain.
