This project was very challenging because it required a lot of research and time which we had very little. It was an interesting project because I've never had to think about the stages of war and make a web page about them. This project didn't change my outlook on revolutions as much because I already knew a little bit about them. I chose to study the Syrian civil war because I wanted to actually understand what happened because its one of the hardest ones to understand.
The incubation stage of the Syrian civil war, The people thought that the government was very horrible and the president acted like a dictator so they started to protest.The Assad family has held power in Syria since 1971. First it was Hafez al-Assad, then Bashar al-Assad. This war is being fought by soldiers who support the president of Syria and a group of fighters who are against the president and government known as the rebels many outside groups and countries are trying to help stop the war like America and Russia.
The systematic stage of the Syrian civil war began in the city of Deraa. on March 6th 2011 when children who painted anti-government graffiti were tortured and killed in detention. The protest was peaceful at first till the government responded angrily on March 18 2011 and killed four protesters. This led to public protests which spread around the country .The March 2011 Arab Spring protest and the July 2012 declaration by the international red cross committee are two very important events that lead to a full on war. People are still protesting now because they want freedom and they want the president to resign which he refused to do.
