A quick and dirty explanation of Syria…

I found this article when I googled “syria explained simply”.  policymic.com is a site that is directed primarily toward millenials, and elevating the discourse around world events and politics.

If you’re anything like me, your head gets all spinny and clogged when listening to various forms of media, especially when you’re listening about something as multi-layered as the Syrian civil war, and the wider Arab Spring.  Hopefully, this article will give you some straightforward facts, and a vocabulary for engaging the wider issue, if you don’t already have a handle on it.
