    Obama is actually doing it right, shocking the International community into action-

    Logical premise:

    The Syrian civil war is escalating in its internal intensity and risks of expanding to a regional conflict, and therefore must be stopped.

    Further, International mechanisms have so far failed to achieve a de-escalation, largely due to widely divergent views, interests and goals of other members of the International mechanisms.

    Well designed response:
    With the threat of an imminent military strike, that would almost certainly make the whole situation worse, create a crisis that will motivate all the parties to resume the Geneva process and relinquish some of their unachievable goals.

    It is happening already.  UN member states are mobilizing.
