The Syrian Civil War has become the most disturbing problem recently. Every day we hear numerous news reports about the military conflict in this country. We read about its victims, refugees and severe bombing. On the other hand, very few Americans understand the reason of this conflict.
Furthermore, many people will hardly show the location of Syria on the map. What caused the Syrian Civil War? What are its consequences? Is it possible to stop the conflict and settle down the whole situation? These questions are extremely pertinent and weighty. I will try to observe at least several reasons that could have caused the total conflict in Syria.
Foremost, the conflict could have begun because of political repressions. Without question, the political system of Syria resembles monarchy. The family of the current Syrian president Bashar al-Assad has been ruling the country for 45 years. His father became president in 1970. Since that time, the country has not seen any political reforms and changes. The current president came to power in 2000. Doubtless, al-Assad has not done anything for the development of a democratic state.
