Blog #2: Syrian Crisis

  1. This article is about the recent deaths in Syria and the overall death count during the 4.5 years of their civil war. I have been interested in learning more about the refugee crisis in Eastern Europe which lead me to find more information on it. The article discusses how Syria is getting more and more dangerous and how the refugee crisis could be worse.
  2. The Chairman if the United Nations panel who is investigating Syria right now did the majority of the research on the death toll and said it was hard to be sure of an exact number. However, the Syrian medical society has been keeping tabs on where individuals are trapped throughout the country and where the highest numbers of death will occur. The physicians for human rights association discovered that there have been almost 300 attacks on hospitals in Syria, all done by pro Assad forces.
  3. I think my biggest question about this article is how has this been happening for so long without U.S. involvement? I have no doubt that we will get involved, the question is just when. I also am curious to see what the actual death count is and how many individuals will be able to find a safe place to be a refugee.

    Specifically, what do you think it means when you say the Syrian medical society are “keeping tabs” on where people are trapped. How do they know where people are trapped?
