My first post was the image on top. This image shows the different chemical weapons facilities as well as missile facilities in Syria. The image shows a great majority of the Syrians governments bases and chemical warfare facilities on it’s western side along the mediterranean sea. The second artifact that is include (Found here) talks about the problems with ISIS revolving around the Assad government. Some of the military bases and chemical weapon sites are near the territory controlled by ISIS. Yet much of these bases are still controlled by the Syrian government, perhaps reassuring that their is a mutual partnership as said by the article in Al Jazeera. I think that in the book of Concepts in Globalization we talked about the fact that we should force Democracy on people. In this case we are beginning to value stability in the region over democratization in Syria.
