Conflict in Syria In 2011, protests spread throughout the country of Syria to bring down the president of Syria, Bashar al-Assad and started a civil war. The U.S. is considering using force in Syria because Bashar al-Assad used chemical weapons against protesters, which is an international law to not use any chemical weapons, and killed more than one hundred-thousand Syrians. Should the U.S. get involved with Syria? The best option the U.S. should take towards Syria is to work with the International Community to end the civil war. This option is best because we are not putting ourselves in harm’s way, it is best to hear others’ options with this kind of situation instead of going ahead, and using more violence is definitely not the answer to stopping this conflict. Cooperating with the International Community would be the best way to end the war because we will not harm ourselves in any ways possible. We are in debt already so we would not be able to afford another war. We also do not want to lose any soldiers or hurt any innocent bystanders. The U.S. should try to compromise with other countries for a much better peaceful solution. Working with others is the best way to end this conflict is because we need a solution that best fits for everybody. The U.S. acting alone will lead not only resentment towards the country, but will hurt the ability to influence a diplomatic solution in Syria. The U.S. should wait until other countries authorize similar military action or, as said before, come up with a peaceful solution that fits for everybody. The U.S. should be a part of the solution, not the conflict. Using force on this matter will not help with anything but will harm not just ourselves but others also.…
Iraq and Syria: Two Nuclear States
In the midst of the end to the War on Terror, Syria made a very bold move in their own right. A rebellion from many of the state’s citizens caused this attack to eventually be one of the most questionable decisions in years. Many compare the chemical attack to the same one as the previous attack in Iraq some years ago. However, there are some differences along with the comparison. Like Iraq at the time of their chemical genocide, Syria was at a fragile state and…
Recently, everything you see, hear, touch, or feel has something to do with Syria. In summary, on August 21, 2013, a chemical attack was made in a Damascus suburb in Syria that killed from 281 to 1,729 people. This, apparently, wasn’t the first attack though. On June 4, 2013, a U.N. report stated that there are "reasonable grounds" to believe that limited amounts of chemical weapons have been used in at least four attacks before in the Syrian civil war. Although it is not explicitly implicated that…

The Unknown Outcome Of Syria
The Syrian civil war has been a prominent issue in the world since its beginning in 2011. Syria’s diverse ethnic groups are what have helped to fuel this country into one of the worst civil war of the 21st century because they can’t compromise. After gaining independence from France in 1946, Syria saw many years of political instability. Dating back to 1947, the Baathist party has ruled Syria for the vast majority of the country's existence. The modern Ba'ath party…
to allow an authorized attack on Syria, but it seemed he had not intended on going to Congress first. Obama claimed that the Syrian government has chemical weapons to harm the people of Syria. President Obama has no right to attack without a declaration from congress because the circumstance does not call for military commitment without the declaration from Congress and would not be fair to the people.
If our president were to launch a military strike in Syria without declaration it would be unfair…

Syria in the Midst of a Civil War
The Middle East was at one point a rich, cultural hub, filled with many different people from the world trying to catch a glimpse of the wonder. It was similar to what New York city is today. Traders and merchants would roam marketplaces, trying to either sell, buy, or trade merchandise from all over the world. Today, it is much different. The whole entire region is plagued with war, brothers fighting brothers, trying to find their place in this world. Syria’s…
