Syrian Democracy

Improved Essays
In March 2011, a pro-democracy protest broke out when some teenagers were arrested and beaten up for drawing a “revolutionary slogan” in a city of Syria. The protest did not stop since then, and pro-democracy people made effort to make their president Bashar al-Assad step down out of dictatorship. Their protest failed every time as the President Bashar al-Assad crushed all those who opposed to his ruling. He sent tanks with trained men to kill the people who did not agree with him. President Obama tried his best to stop President Bashar al-Assad as he warned him in hopes to end his violence attack against his people and instead, embrace democracy by protecting his citizens and giving them rights. Instead, fighting turned to a big scale and …show more content…
According to New Yorker, “the Turkish economy will expand by three per cent this year and by four per cent this year. Lebanon’s economy is also growing, at a rate of about two per cent this year, which will expand to more than three per cent next year.” (John Cassidy. 1) Basically, this is saying that the nations such as Turkey and Lebanon have already gained benefits by welcoming more refugees and the economy is expected to prosper within the next few years. Part of this is because Syrians are willing to work anything they can do to support their families. They left everything behind and lost everything. In order to survive, they are doing everything they can to earn money. Additionally, an International Labor Organization survey of Syrian refugees in Lebanon, found out that Syrian refugees already are talented in most of the things such as in agriculture, cleaning, and etc. They are also able to create jobs which can benefit the government. But in many cases, Syrian refugees take jobs that normal people wouldn’t take. It doesn’t matter whether they can speak English or not because unwanted jobs usually require more manually rather than verbally. As long as they are strong, they will be used. Since Syrian refugees are working different tasks than normal Americans, it is highly unlikely that they would get into conflict but rather benefit each other. The Washington Post states that, “an …show more content…
This is what United States did during WW2. When Korea was in its war against the north, American troops were sent to help fight against the communism. Even though Korea had failed to become a democratic country, American troops did their best to free Korea from communism. Not only did they send troops to Korea, but also to Vietnam during WW2. This act of trying to help did not stop ever since then. At the end of Vietnam War, the US admitted “125,000 Vietnamese refugees.” Hillary Clinton said, “"We cannot allow terrorists to intimidate us into abandoning our values and humanitarian obligations. Turning away orphans, applying a religious test, discriminating against Muslims, slamming the door on every single Syrian refugee—that 's just not who we are. We are better than that.” Even Donald Trump who once said that, “I hate the concept of it [accepting Syrian refugees], but on a humanitarian basis, you have to… But you know, it’s living hell in Syria. There’s no question about it. They’re living in hell and something has to be done.” The immigration restriction is making lots of Syrian refugees to lose their lives. Who is going to help them in their times of trouble? America has the ability to help these people. One of the mothers whose husband was killed by a sniper said, “We 're just living on the edge of life. We 're always nervous, we 're always afraid”. (the story of the conflict) USA have so

    This singlehandedly changed the policy at the time from diplomatic to a much more aggressive and military confrontation with the Soviet Union. The US bombed the North relentlessly and dropped chemicals such as Agent Orange to try and starve the population out. The United States resorted to these methods as the Vietnamese would fight guerilla warfare, such as at Hamburger Hill, and would lay out traps for US soldiers. Also, many North Vietnamese civilian were the ones actually fighting the war as they became inspired by the death of their countrymen and destruction caused by American forces. The American public was also against the war due to the hippie movement and the ability to see what the war truly was like.…

    He created a bill that would allow him to sell weapons to those nations on a "cash and carry ' basis. "President FDR declared American Neutrality when WWII erupted in September 1939." (Campbell) With FDR believing that we should not enter the war, many people at this time agreed very much with him, since The Great Depression was in progress and World War I had only just recently ended. But there were still people who didn’t agree with him at all. "In late September 1939, he asked Congress to revise the Neutrality Act to allow the sale of weapons to nations at war on a "cash and carry" basis."…

    What was the cause, the point, the strategy? And suddenly many Americans started to realize that there was no good answer” (Quindlen). By giving her audience the background knowledge that she was a mother who had a son dead, she provokes emotion into the audience that makes them feel sorry for Sheehan and helps them jump onto Quindlen 's bandwagon that Bush is a horrible person since he refused to speak with her. Quindlen was correct in saying that Sheehan had showed up at Bush 's ranch, wanting answers about her son’s death from the Iraq war. This can be proven as there is a news report on Sheehan saying, “Sheehan, who co-founded the anti-war group Gold Star Families for Peace led about 50 demonstrators near the Bush ranch Saturday.” (Quijano) asking “ 'why did he kill my son?…

    Everyone is in fear that the same kind of attack can happen in the U.S. as one Syrian passport was found near the body of a dead suicide bomber in the attack in Paris. This has led to uncertainty over Obama’s plan as nearly 31 states are protesting against accepting refugees. However, it has not yet been proven whether a Syrian refugee was involved in the attack or not. Despite the attack, the president of France is still going forward with his plans to provide shelter to 30,000 refugees. Hence, the U.S. should not be afraid that all the refugees are terrorists.…

    Paying for refugees would not only be less expensive, but more successful than increased military intervention in the Middle East. Losing jobs and freeloading is another economic concern that a country built on values of hard work has. The potential that Americans will lose jobs has caused uproar more than once, but especially when arguing against refugee entrance. The reality of stolen jobs is understandable, but refugees would not be a large impact on the United State’s economy. Refugees would likely take unwanted jobs and some may even set up their own businesses.…

    The wars in Vietnam and Korea, during the Cold War, were both attempts made by the United States to stop/slow the spread of communism in East Asia. During these two wars, the US was unwilling to partake in total warfare, yet was not prepared to lose in battle. Due to this, limited options were available for the US to remain in their position of dominant world power, achieved in their victory during the Second World War. How did the United States position as dominant power in the World coming out of World War Two modify their foreign policy, thus changing their tactics in the Korean and Vietnam wars? The United States achieved modified victory based off of foreign policy, through strategy change and ideological change to remain the dominant…

    But it was filmed in the early parts of the war and it showed America’s perspective of the war from not wanting to enter the war to joining after Pearl Harbor and wanting their revenge on Japan. The movie was helping the people of America get motivated to help in the war, they wanted to help stop the Nazi’s because of how the people in the movie had stood up to them in the cafe when they had taken over the music. The character Rick Blaine is representing the role as America after Pearl Harbor, the US wasn’t involved in the war but after the Japanese have ambushed America, it forced America into the war.

    If the war hadn’t been going on the vast majority of these refugees would have never embarked on their journey. A quick win-all end to the war in Syria is clearly not possible, but efforts in ending this war could help the migrant crisis long-term (Kingsley “10 Ways to Manage”). There is no end to the civil war in sight and without an end the refugee crisis could become a never ending cycle. Around 18% of Syria’s prewar population have been registered by the Office of the United Nations as refugees that have fled Syria, and 32% are displaced within the country. Over 10 million Syrian’s either have or want to escape Syria (Rohr).…
