Syria has been “in a state of political unrest” (Syria n.p.) since the twentieth century and now into the twenty-first century, due to the civilian outrage of governmental control and polices. The unstable political system, economy and tensions from religious groups are straining Syria and causing even more chaos within the country. March 2011 was the beginning of the Syrian Civil War against pro-democracy supporters, those who back the Assad regime and the military, in which thousands would be displaced and thousands would be killed. The Syrian Civil War may have roots dating back to clashes amongst Sunni Muslims and Shiite Muslims, who fuse Christian practices together with the Muslim tradition.
Syria is south of Turkey, north of Jordan, east of Lebanon, east of the Mediterranean Sea, and west of Iraq. They are in the Middle East. There are also a lot of issues in the Middle East that we should be worried about, but the human rights violations in Syria are more important because they are taking human rights and violating them to where they do not feel safe or free. Most countries have human rights violations but Syria's violations are getting really bad. Most of the world is getting upset with the Syrian government for treating the citizens they way they are with no freedom or anything.
The situation in Syria is not only about the Syrian population now but has become a political arena for the International community. This war has had certain number of negative implications such as the tensions among the West with Russia and China. In a United Nations Security Council meet Russia and China vetoed against a western drafted draft that would allow for a military intervention in Syria if continued military action against protestors. A certain number of cases indicating the use of chemical weapons have been reported. Both the sides have accused each other for the attacks.

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.
Other foreign countries like the United States, France, and Britain should get involved and attempt to stop the murdering and helped fix the problems or try to discuss a method to tame the rebels. Some people believe that the United States shouldn’t get involved and that we should mind our own business and believe that if we do get involved, then we start problems in Russia. (New York Times) The civil war in Syria, all started with teens protesting against the President Bashar al-Assad’s regime.
