Abstract

This paper looks at the civil war in Syria. It has been ongoing for nearly a decade now, and over its duration it has expanded to involve other countries. Many of the countries involved have their own reasons for supporting one side or another. This paper looks at what several of the key players such as Russia, Turkey, Iran, and the United States seek to gain by involving themselves in the civil war. There will be a portion devoted to giving background information on the causes of the civil war in order for the reader to better understand the civil war. It will look at various factors such as what caused the civil war as well as the effects the civil war has had on the country. These reasons for each country involving themselves in the civil war are varied, but this paper will look at the motivations of the previously mentioned Russia, Turkey, Iran, and the United States. Looking at the motivations of the various countries involving themselves in the civil war will help to understand how the situation became long lasting and bloody.
