The civil war in Syria is an absolute mess. It’s also a war that continues to rage on every single day, with no sign of coming to an end any time soon. Without giving away to many spoilers for the video, I would like to take a quick second to try and explain it to you.
On one side of the war we have the rebel forces. On the other side of the war we have the Assad regime. Somewhere in the middle we have the terrorist organizations, like ISIS and Jabhat al-Nusra, trying to capitalize on the conflict.
Somewhere standing on the outside of everything we have a multitude of other countries. The largest of these countries supporting opposite sides are Russia, and the United States. We could publish a book on the politics of everything, but instead I would like to present you with this simple video that explains everything in exactly 30 seconds.
That in a nutshell explains the entire war in Syria. I hope you leave this blog post with a greater understanding of the current civil war in Syria. You now know the cause of the war. You know who is fighting in the war. Most importantly though, you know how much progress has been made.
Have a great day!
