Presumably beacuse the Alawite (Shi'ite) regime of Assad is aligned with Iran. The lesser of two evils.

/The war in Syria should go on as long as possible. It should cost Iran a lot, supplying both money and weapons, and possibly even men. Iunnis in Syria and in Lebanon would, one hopes, continue to attack Hezbollah fighters in Syria, and perhaps even  Hezbollah fighters, and their warehoused weaponry, in Lebanon.

In the end, it would be best if the Alawites retained control in Syria-- but only just. And  not before much of their heavy weaponry, and especially their airplanes, have been damaged or destroyed in fighting.

Ideally, the Alawites and those who for their own reasons support them will be able to hold, but the Iranians by that point will have concluded supporting Syria is costing too much, and lessen that support, and even come to realize that would now be too difficult to attempt to resupply Hezbollah. It is not inevitable that Syria and iran remain allies forever.

Should, however, the Sunnis win in Syria, another welcome outcome would be that of an emboldened Sunni rump in Iraq, allied with Syrian Sunnis, making war on Shi'a in Iraq who might be backed by fellow Shi'a in Iran. That is the only conceivable reason to possibly not regret a Sunni victory, eventually, in Syria.
