Hm, let me think...

https://www.hrw.org/news/2015/03/22/...kill-civilians

Why the rebels attacking civilian population haven't led to articles in NYT like "it is (finally) time to bomb..."?
It is a total war, the incentives on both sides are erase the other, because they know the other side has endless supplies of war materials, so the human base is targeted. Have no illusions, US was planning on having this war, was funneling arms, let Turkey and Saudis do the same, and now they build up the "weapons of mass destruction" (ups, obsolete, this time it is "war crimes") propaganda so that if they escalate then the stupid voters in US will not object, so they'll not have to use CIA doing covert arms trade but instead the congress will bless the war.
From the link you xourself posted "“We’ve seen a race to the bottom in Syria with rebel groups mimicking the ruthlessness of government forces with devastating consequences for civilians”

Looks like both sides are committing war crimes; so why do you blame the US?
I suppose you believe the US started the "Arab Spring"
