SYRIAN CIVIL WAR

The Syrian Civil War is an ongoing armed conflict taking place in Syria. The unrest began in the early spring of 2011 within the context of Arab Spring protests, with nationwide protests against President Bashar al-Assad‘s government, whose forces responded with violent crackdowns. The conflict gradually morphed from prominent protests to an armed rebellion after months of military sieges.

The armed opposition consists of various groups that were formed during the course of the conflict, primarily the Free Syrian Army, which was the first to take up arms in 2011, and the Islamic Front, formed in 2013. In 2013, Hezbollah entered the war in support of the Syrian Army. In the east, the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), a jihadist militant group originating from Iraq, made rapid military gains in both Syria and Iraq, eventually conflicting with the other rebels. By July 2014, ISIL controlled a third of Syria’s territory and most of its oil and gas production, thus establishing itself as the major opposition force.

By July 2013, the Syrian government was in control of approximately 30–40% of the country’s territory and 60% of the Syrian population. A United Nations report in late 2012 described the conflict as being “overtly sectarian in nature”, between mostly Alawite government forces, militias and other Shia groups fighting largely against Sunni-dominated rebel groups, although both opposition and government forces have denied it. Due to foreign involvement, this conflict has been called a proxy war.

More than 4 million Syrians have fled their country’s ongoing civil war

In recent weeks, chaos at border crossings and train stations, squalid conditions in makeshift refugee camps and a heartbreaking photograph of a drowned Syrian toddler have all helped bring Europe’s refugee crisis into the global spotlight.

According to the UNHCR, more than 380,000 migrants and refugees have landed on Europe’s southern shores so far this year, up from 216,000 arrivals in the whole of 2014. They are fleeing persecution, poverty and conflicts that rage beyond the continent’s borders.

You can see the many “hands’ that are involved in this horrible conflict.

The sad reality of that region.

Greed, war, persecution, conflict, bombing, destruction, displacement …. nothing good can come out of this.

How did this get started?

How will this end?

What will be the final outcome?

How many humans lives will it cost?

  1. GREAT JOB!!! Thanks for doing this. I had a hard time blogging on Syria because it is just too depressing and upsetting. We did have a short window of time after the Spring uprising in 2011, to help the those fighting against Asad’s regime. President Obama blew this one.The arrival of al-Qaeda/ ISIS (ISIL) on the scene was a game changer which we could have prevented. I almost wish POTUS had not publicly stated that President Asad had to go. If we were not going to step in to help at an early stage, we should have pushed for a political solution. Now, the Syrian refugees are paying the price. We owe them big time!! It is infuriating that we are taking in so few.

    • Thank YOU!! Agree on the refugee issue …. it’s really getting to me. I think USA meddled starting w Kuwait & later Iraq, w/o know in the delicate workings of the region, as you’ve posted. Correct me if I’m wrong …. I don’t see a way back. Retreat? How? Stay? Make it worse ….. No winners. Refugees paying as you say. SMH …

  2. In Syria, NO, I don’t think there is an easy way out. ISIS and al-Qaeda need to be stopped and they are too entrenched. I do not see Assad going anytime soon. Until we accept that, I do not see a political solution. Besides all the bombing, peoples are leaving because ISIS will kill anyone who is not Muslim and who will not practice their extreme version of Sharia law. Iraq is different. Ever since WWI, Iraqi’s Sunnis, Shia and Kurds have wanted their own territory. VP Joe Biden gets this. There is a political solution here but the current administration has to let go of the “One Iraq state policy. ISIS/ al-Qaeda will have to go! Fortunately, here with the Kurds help, Iraq has already taken back territory from ISIS/ al-Qaeda. This is why I feel US is wrong in not supporting the Kurds more because of Turkey, a supposed NATO ally. Turkey is an arch enemy of Kurds and has been proven to be assisting ISIS to fight the Kurds. The Kurds have offered to help take back Mosul but the U.S. is waiting until the Iraqi military will be up to snuff where they can fight ISIS to retake Mosul, The U.S. and Iraq have a long wait. In Yemen, a political solution could be reached by insuring Saudi Arabia and Iraq have reasonable access to the port city of Aden. Again, ISIS /al-Qaeda have got to go. Libya like Syria is a tough situation. A political solution will be difficult. Maybe, I should blog on all of this, or you could.
