One of the big issues of today is Syria. Riots started in March 2011 when civilians wanted political prisoners freed.  The protests started relativity peacefully as part of the “Arab Spring” but the government respond very violently. It rapidly spiralled out of control with protests starting in all the major cities including Damascus and Deraa. Tanks have invaded the cities.  Over 110,000 people  have been shot, shelled and poisoned.  The protests have now turned into a civil war nation wide with many children killed and injured. The red cross and other charities like it have been setting up various camps outside of Syria to help refugees. The UN (united nations) have been urging  President Assad to do something about this.

This week there has been a chemical weapons disarmament deal done by John Kerry (USA) and Sergei Lavrov (Russia) which means that Syria have seven days to declare all its chemical weapons.  If they don’t there will be  serious action will be taken by Russia and America.

David Cameron recently lost a vote to take military action in Syria.  If the Assad government doesnt comply with the chemical weapon agreement should Britain intervene and support Ameriaca in strikes against the Syrian Government.

What do you think? Should we fight them or help them?
