It's all strategic posturing and politics.
Russia is currently nice and cozy with Syria. So they want to back the current regime and keep their influence in the region. The US sees its opportunity to not only remove Russian influence, but insert their own.
Iran also wants to see the current Syrian leadership remain intact, it'd be bad for them if yet another middle eastern country becomes pro-US. So they send in 4k troops to aid the Syrian government.
