Active Minds presents The Struggle of Syria

Since gaining its independence from the French in 1946, Syria has had a rocky and troubled history. Since 2011, Syria has been fighting a brutal Civil War in which the Assad regime (with support from Russia and Iran) has used brutal tactics to cling to power. On the other side, opposition forces have included ISIS (which originated in Syria) and al Qaeda, making for a complicated situation relative to U.S. interests. Join Active Minds as we seek to understand Syria's complex history and how this informs current and future challenges for this pivotal player in the Middle East.
