The “Right” Choice as it Relates to Syria
Syria’s turmoil has been stirring up since the year 2011. It all started with protests against the president of the country Bashar al-Assad. Over time, the protests evolved into a civil war that has seen the country suffer greatly. Since the protests escalated to brutal civil wars, many people have fled to neighboring countries for safety. In addition, many people have lost their lives while others experienced severe injuries. The situation in Syria is a matter of the government facing rebellion from citizens who believe otherwise as far as the president’s ideas are concerned. As such, people are suffering when the two sides engage in seemingly endless war (Henderson web). War is immoral since people suffer and, unfortunately, others die.

Such attacks are leading to the death of innocent people in the country. Death is an unfortunate happening that occurs once in a person’s life. However, death caused on innocent people for the selfish purpose of retaining power is unbearable and should not happen to anyone. Syria’s citizens living in territories owned by rebels are facing multiple deaths from its government forces. The right decision for Syrians is to seek international aid in this matter. The right choice for the citizens is to pursue delegations among the two opposing sides in the coun.............
