What knowledge I have learned about Syria in Social Studies this week is; that there has been a civil war going on for two years! I learned that the Syrian government and the Rebels are fighting. (Rebels are people of their own country who disagree with what their government is doing and become part of a war.) America is debating whether or not we should send missiles to Syria because of the off-limits chemical weapons that they are using against their own people. Other countries will say it is not fair, and they’ll start using them too. My question is; does Syrian know that we may send missiles, and if we do, will they strike back at America? In conclusion, this is what I learned from my Social Studies class on the topic of Syria.
