Syria is going through a civil war. A civil war is a war with the same country inside their country. Stephen Starr says that the Civil war is between the Sunni Muslim Rebels and most of Syria's 2 million Christians under the rule of Bashar Assad. Bashar Assad is the president of Syria, he is honestly not a bad man he thinks what the government is doing to the citizens is terrible. The civil war is mostly about the Christians not getting the freedom of religion that they want.

The problem is the constant fighting between Assad’s forces and the rebel forces. The cause is President Bashar al-Assad has power of Syria and the solution is to find a peaceful resolution and end the civil war. The problem in Syria is that President Bashar al-Assad wants to stay in power, as you will discover, he will do anything to stay as president. Also, there is no representation for the people of Syria since it is a one-party system that keeps Assad in power. There are no other parties for people to vote for to voice their opinions and get decent representation in the government.
This causes a problem for people who seek a balanced report from a subject without just hearing one side of an argument. Thus, leaving the viewing public ill-informed. The Syrian civil war is a battle between the Syrian government and those who are seeking to dethrone it. The civil war began as a civil uprising from government corruption and human rights abuse, but quickly evolved from minor protest into an armed rebellion. The uprising began around the 15 of March 2011 and is still currently being disputed.

These tensions have fuelled gossip of US-led military intervention. However, whether the US should intervene militarily or not has drawn several opinions. Opinion based on humanitarian grounds that urge the president to intervene using military action, is one of them. The proponents argue from the point of view that suffering demands action (Moyn 3). This group believes that the United States is in the best position than any other country to stop the suffering of the Syrian people and the bloodshed going on, and therefore no action from the US means more innocent lives will continue to be lost (Moyn 3).
