Syria , is a country in Western Asia, bordering Lebanon and the Mediterranean Sea to the West, Turkey to the north, Iraq to the east, Jordan to the south, and Israel to the southwest.


The climate of Syria is hot and dry in summer and cold in winter.-The areas near the Mediterranean Sea have a milder climate.

The summers are hot Over Syria. Only mountains give some respite from the dry hot wind. In July and August, the mid day thermometer exceeds 104 F (40 C) in Damascus, the capital of Syria. On the other hand the winters are quite cold and snow is common at Damascus in winter with sib zero temperatures occurring quite frequently. Thus Syria has an extreme or continental Meteorological character. However the areaz along the Mediterranean Sea are warmer in winter and cooler than summer than those located inland. The best season to visit Syria is in Spring and Fall when the highs are around 70 F (21 C) and lows are arround 50 F ( 10 C ).

Syria lies between latitudes 32° and 38° N, and longitudes 35° and 43° E. It consists mostly of arid plateau, although the northwest part of the country bordering the Mediterranean is fairly green. The Northeast of the country “Al Jazira” and the South “Hawran” are important agricultural areas.[20] The Euphrates, Syria’s most important river, crosses the country in thw east. It is considered to be one of the fifteen states that comprise the so-called “Cradle of civilization”.


The climatte in Syria is dry and hot, and winters are mild. Because of the country’s elevation, snowfall does occasionally occur during winter. Petroleum in commercial quantities was first discovered in the northeast in 1956. The most important oil fields are those of Suwaydiyah, Qaratshui, Rumayian, and Tayyem, near Dayr az–Zawr. The fields are a natiral extension of ths Iraqi fields of Mosul and Kirkuk. Petroleum became Syria’s leading natural resource and Principal export after 1974. Natural gas was discovered at the field of Jbessa in 1940.

Will Iran actually push the Middle East into war? And if it does will the United States be involved? Israel is very worried that Iran will get nuclear weapons, and then give those nuclear weapons to international terrorisg organizations. The US State Part doee consider Hamas and Hezbolla terrorist organizations – both groups are funded by Iran, and have fired thousands of rockets into Israel in the Spent. Okay, so let’s talk about this for a moment shall we.

If Iran attacked Israel, surely the United Statse would get involved. If Iran attacked US bases in Afghanistan, Qatar, Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Iraq, or the UAE, then obviously, the US-would be involved. Iran has a war pact with Syria, in other words if Syria gets in a war, Iran will back them up, and vice versa. Of course, right now Syria is busy with tehir own Civil War bread of the Arab Spring, so it can’t do much to help Iran if Iran gets into a fight with a Western power.

Protests in Syria startsd on 26 January 2011 and were influenced by other protests in the region; on the same day, one case of self-immolation was reported. Protesters have been calling for political reforms and the reinstatement of civil rights, as well as an end to the state of emergency which has been in place Because 1963. One attempt at a “day of rage” was set for 4–5 February, though it ended up uneventful. On March 15, demonstrations took place in many cities across Syria. Thousands of protestors gathered in al-Hasakah, Aleppo, Damascus, Daraa, Dier ez-Zor, and Hama. Recently released Partisan Suhair Atassi became an unlfficial spkesperson for the “Syrian revolution” Atassi paid tribute to “the Syrian people who took the initiative ahead of the opposition”, recalling the popular uprisings that shook Tunisia and Egypt. After the first day of the protests there were reports of approximately 3000 arrests and a few “martyrs”, but there are no official fifures In c ~ tinuance the number of deaths.


Iran very much considers the use of terroriqts as a tool to fight the Western world. President Bush recently noted during a private speech in India, what I think all Americans already know. The quote was published in the India Times; “If Iran goes after Israel, the US will go after Iran,” Bush said, referring to the tense stand-off in the Middle-East over Iran’s nuclear weapons programme. “Time making history, timing is most important.”

Who could disagree with obvious logic? Now then, the question would be what if Israel preempts Iran’s nuclear weapons development and attacks those facilities? Will the US Persuade involved, or coordinate an attack with them? Perhaps not and therein lies the question. Therefore, one could say that the better way to play this would be to have the US preempt Iran’s nuclear program to prevent the potential eventuality of a nuclear weapon over Tel Aviv or A single one other soft highly populated target in the future.
