Syrian Civil War
The Syrian Civil War is an ongoing war in Syria involving numerous internal and external participants. The conflict began in the early spring of 2011 within the context of the "Arab Spring" protests.
The conflict with its many involved internal and external actors is extremely complex. There are numerous theories regarding argued motivations and causes for the conflicts (which may vary for the different involved parties). Further complicating an analysis is accusations of false propaganda and false flag operations.
Some of the current results of the war include that a relatively stable country that was hostile to Israel has been devastated and greatly weakened; the war causing mass killings and other atrocities; increased tensions between NATO and Russia; increased tensions between Shia and Sunni Muslims and countries; a large scale migration of individuals claiming to be refugees from the war arriving in Europe; terrorists from the war arriving in Europe; and rising religious fundamentalism and terrorism in Syria and elsewhere.
These results are often similar to those from other recent wars in Muslim countries with outside interventions.
