Refugees continue to stream out of Syria by the tens of thousands, creating an international crisis, but efforts to restore order are more confusing than ever.

Now Russia — which has supported Assad — is sending in military equipment and some troops. But the worst nightmare for either power is a failed state taken over by ISIS. Is there a possibility of finding common ground?
