After reading about the multiple countries currently hosting Syrian refugees, it is clear that although neighboring countries have been doing their best to help, there are simply not enough resources for those in need and host countries are struggling. The United Nations estimates that there are over two million Syrian refugees currently hosted in neighboring countries, and the number is growing. This also does not account for the large number of refugees that have entered surrounding countries illegally, or have simply not registered with the UN upon leaving Syria. This growing number of refugees is causing a strain on host countries. For example, currently Lebanon is hosting a number of refugee’s equivalent to seventeen percent of the country’s population. Resources are starting to run low, and in Serbia, it has caused a water shortage. Despite these problems, the conditions are still considered better than the over four million refugees still in Syria. Some of these refugees are unable to leave Syria, while others simply cannot stand the idea of living in a refugee camp, where you are unable to leave the compound, work, or even bring education to your children. These camps are often described as ‘prison like’ and to some, seem like worse alternatives than faring on their own. For those unable to leave Syria, the camps located inside the city are in worse condition than those in neighboring countries. In addition to lack of food, water, and medicine, the fear of death…
Should The U.S Attack The Syrian Government?
A wise man, Bob Dylan, once pointed out, “All this talk about equality. The only thing people have in common is that they are all going to die.” What this quote essentially means is that no matter how hard human beings fight for equality, no one person will ever be equal to another. This world alone has come so far since the Four Founding Fathers signed the document stating 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…

Magazine recognized the protester as leading the way for reforms and policy changes the world over.
In Syria, however, the protests have led to violent retaliation by the government, the army and security forces. Some Syrians feel that President Bashar al-Assad should step down, paving the way for what they see as necessary reforms, while others feel that his rule is the only thing holding Syria together. With his army and security forces firmly intertwined, the human rights violations continue…
Crisis in Syria
Mr. President, my job as foreign policy aide in the White House is to inform you on alerting indications in other countries. As of now, I’m sure you know about conflicts in Syria, but I am also sure you don’t know the full extent of this crisis. As this story unfolded in the media it’s almost as if it left America half and half on what they think we (America) should do.
Syria, a Middle Eastern country is in a full civil war that is affecting millions of people, I’ll get…
