Abstract or Introduction
This essay gives an answer to following questions: How did the opposition to Syrian president Assad develop from peaceful urban protest to militant Islamist resistance? How did regime violence contribute to the radicalization of the protesters? What role did foreign powers play in militarizing the conflict and preventing a peaceful solution? And, finally, how could a possible demilitarization and a lasting peace be brought about?
