Syrian Civil War Connor gauldin

This research was pretty easy to come by except for the convalescence phase because it hasn't happened yet. It interested me while researching because there were so many things I didn't know about the war because the news doesn't recap on them. I chose this revolution to study because I felt it was more relevant because we are always hearing about it on the news. This project changed my outlook on revolutions because I thought they were all quick and short but after studying this revolution i know they are also long.

Long term causes- Poor economy, human rights violations, political corruption, unemployment, extreme poverty, not enough housing. Also the president has had a line of family in the government and nobody likes the family. They also have bad dust storms which lead to low crops. And their population to resource ratio is out of balance.

Systematic Stage- 15 boys were detained and tortured for spraying graffiti which is one of the things that sparked the revolution and, the president killed hundreds of protesters. Also thousands of young children are being recruited into the military all the time which many people are mad about

Crisis Stage

Crisis stage- Aleppo has Fallen and it goes further into civil war. July 6, 2013 - Ahmad Assi Jarba is elected the new leader of the Syrian National Coalition. October 3, 2012 - Five people are killed by Syrian bombing in the Turkish border town of Akcakale. There are many anti regimes that are killing and people 11 million people have been displaced from their homes.


Convalescence stage- The war has not yet ended but what the en might look like is Isis and other rebel groups being destroyed and the United states taking a bigger part in the war. Also Russia taking a bigger part and joining the Syrian regime in taking part in fight the rebels.

French Revolution VS Syrian civil war

French revolution vs Syrian civil war- Similarities In both were the common people had been dealing with bad leaders for a while and very little representation so they both protest and 1 major event sparked each revolution. Differences are that the United States is getting involved in the Syrian war as they didn't with the French revolution. Also in the Syrian civil war there are many more rebel groups all over Syria whereas in the french revolution there was just the one.
