There is no "RIGHT" side...both groups should be considered war criminals having used WMDs, specifically: chemical (gas) weapons.
As you point out Russia is making huge money as the number two supplier of WAR MATERIEL. Putin and Russia are supporting Assad because they are GREEDY! There are big dollars to be made and Putin is a greedy politician. Moscow, Russia has per capita more millionaires than any other city. Greed is the driving force in Russia.
As for al Qaeda (or sometimes spelled al Qa'ida)
Jabhat Al-Nusra, (Al-Nusra Front) with its head, Abu Mohammad al-Golani, is an al-Qaeda affiliate that has emerged as one of the most effective rebel factions in Syria. Concern about the Syrian al Qaeda-affiliated group Jabhat al-Nusra, also known as the al-Nusra Front, is at an all-time high, according to the analyst, with as many as 10,000 fighters and supporters inside Syria. Al Qaeda’s affiliate inside Syria is now the best-equipped arm of the terror group in existence today.
Al-Qa‘ida in Iraq (AQI)—also known as the Islamic State of Iraq (ISI)—was established in April 2004 by long-time Sunni extremist Abu Mus‘ab al-Zarqawi, who the same year pledged his group’s allegiance to Usama Bin Ladin. The Iraqi group operates under the umbrella of the Islamic State in Iraq (ISI), a coalition of militant groups that boast a long track record of fighting the US troops. In an official statement issued April 13, 2013, the al-Qa'ida-affiliated Islamic State of Iraq (ISI) officially claimed Syria’s Jabhat al-Nusra (JN) as its own product and subsidiary.

As for the United Nations – they are a globalist organization with an interest in the outcome as it can accelerate their movement to global governance. This organization is just one of the movers that are trying to bring about global governance. Global Governance is the goal of these organizations: The United Nations (Read: Our Global Neighborhood, The Report of The United Nations Commission On Global Governance, 1995) The Council of Foreign Relations, The Bilderbergs, The Club of Rome, The Illuminati, Green Cross International, The Clinton Initiative, The Earth Charter, The New Age Movement, and The Tri-Lateral Commission.
The BEST alternative in this CIVIL WAR is to STAY OUT OF IT! Let the various groups sort this out by themselves...a small squirmish in an out of the way place is of no consequince to the rest of us.
Turkey may have the most to lose if the civil war spills over its borders ...but the UN doesn't care because the criminals there don't like sovereign national borders.
