NOTE: This is the first of a series on the war in Syria

We have all seen the videos. We were, once again, shocked and appalled that a leader of a country can be so ruthless, so vicious and so monstrous to his own people. For the second time in President Trump’s first term, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s internationally condemned actions against his people have brought a military response from the U.S. and our allies. But, there is so much more going on in Syria than humanitarian considerations.
