You can never be safe from a government that can keep you completely safe from each other and the world. You must choose.

Potentially, neither side wins and Syria could split into two nations along sectarian lines, which would likely push Lebanon and Iraq into sectarian civil wars of their own. The war could languish on indefinitely with no defacto government able to solidfy control slowly transforming Syria into a failed state a la Somalia where Al Qaeda-ism, violence, and extreme poverty reign.
The very real threat of these kind of outcomes if the situation is left to fester on its own are the reason the international community needs to get involved.
