It's not so simple. Besides the Assad regime, there are 100 to 300 armed gangs in Syria who change allegiance on a daily basis, merge or just stop, IS is also fighting Al-Qaida, the "free Syrians" operating from inside Turkey fight all the above, and last but not least, there are the Kurds who are just fighting to survive. From an EU perspective there is not one group to give any serious support. Arming IS or Al-Qaida is a bad idea, like arming the mudjaheddin in Afghanistan turned out to be, ditto the Kurds (the PKK are genuine terrorists in their own right), and the the free Syrians have some ties to hamas/hezbolla in Lebanon.
Basically there is no group or faction that the west can back, to the the point of real soldiers fighting beside them against the regime, the gangs, Al-Qaida and the radicalized western youths that make up IS. I'm afraid the whole country will be a bloody mess the next decade. It's like the gangs of Mogadishu, the Balkan war, and the Palestine-Israeli conflict but with 5 instead of 2 parties, all rolled into one terrible mess.
The 2 Syrians I spoke to in Kos 2½ week ago, said they would probably have voted for Assad the next election, he was far from perfect, but under his regime there was no all-out guerrilla war like now.
