Reply To: How, if at all, did this course shape or change your perception of the ongoing Syrian Civil War?

Denise I agree that I was very unclear about the state of the Syrian Civil War, I was aware of the Russian/Communist influence in the region and the proxy the war served for larger international interests but beyond that I knew little. I too found the role of Turkey in the conflict interesting, I studied the Armenian Genocide in college and find it horrible that the modern government does not acknowledge the genocide. Even in my studies, I had not learned that surviving Christians found refuge in Syria.
