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.…

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…
The New Zealand Position
As the crisis in Syria enters its fifth year, the international community must be prepared
to address this situation head on. Addressing the UN General Assembly, The New Zealand reaffirmed the National Party government’s support for the US drive to war against Syria. It is
clear that the UN Security Council’s lack of agreement, has made it a powerless bystander to the
Syrian tragedy and in a way, shielded the Assad…
external actors to scrutinize and judge Assad regime’s poor treatment of its own people. Assad’s response has been one of inflexible negation, refusing any sort of cooperation with the international community whatsoever. Thus, the dilemma of the Syrian conflict is how much longer the international community and the United States can sit by and observe as manifestation of the regime’s flagrant disrespect for human rights continues to escalate. As the choice between intervention and non-intervention requires…
Learning Journal I (Culture and U.S Involvement in Syria)
It would be much easier to understand each other’s cultures if everyone had a culturally relative view but unfortunately most of us look upon it ethnocentrically. We judge peoples cultures based on many things; their values, beliefs, wealth, government, etc… All these things can be difficult to understand from looking at stories and pictures over the internet, or in books, magazines and newspapers.
I feel it is beneficial to visit and…
Syria throughout the years has generally remained a “neutral” country within the Middle East. But due to growing frustrations with the Syrian government, people began to peacefully protest in mid-2011. Protests started turning violent within months, and violence turned into a full-fledged war shortly after that. I am going to take a look into the events and policies leading up to the conflict, what turned the protests violent, what is happening now in 2013, and what both sides are doing to…
Specific purpose: To inform my audience what kind of suffering experienced by the Syrian people.
Thesis: The international community has failed in Syria, where the United Nations, as well as the great powers in the world cannot stop the bloodbath in Syria. The death toll in Syria is becoming increasingly and refugees filling the neighboring countries of Syria.
