Great Overview of Syria Crisis

Here's a great overview of the civil war in Syria from the Washington Post--why it started, why the US might intervene, why Russia opposes intervention,  and why there are no good choices for the US or any other country.

It's great for students if you cover current events and it's great to use during the end of World War II when the boundary lines of Syria were drawn.  Thanks to Bridgette Wagoner for tweeting the link.
