7. Is he responsible


for every Death in a Civil War? It looks like a fight to the Death to me. The forces controled by Assad which are Alwaite has used force at any means to maintain power over the Kurds and Sunnis. The Sunnis are 74 percent of the population. The Alwaites are more Sectarian and the Sunnis are more Islamic. All the groups have their allies in surrounding countries. The Alwaites have ties to populations in Turkey, Iran and Lebanon. This is just a proxy War. The Alwaites overthrew the Sunnis for power back in the 70s and has held power ever since according to Syria's history through oppression. If Assad is over
thrown, this means all the Alwaites lose power. The Sunnis will probably begin their revenge and oppression. The U.S. is not creating a Democracy, they are just supplanting one group for another and it will continue. These other Arab countries are just helping their kindred Brethren. The Turks are probably just helping the Kurds. So what is the end game here for the U.S.?
