How can we use the mistakes and triumphs of WWII to guide our actions in Syria?
Does history have to repeat itself?
Above is my WWII Timeline. I filled out important events that happened during WWII based on this documentary, "America: The Story Of US."
Above is a timeline based off events that happened during 2011-2015. We got these events from an article called, "Syria: The Story Of Conflict."
Above is a web that helped me with my understanding of how ISIS rose to power. I got this information from watching a documentary called, "Frontline: Rise of ISIS."
"From the documentary, what do you think was the most important event that caused ISIS to rise to power?" I think that American troops leaving Syria in 2011 was an important event that caused ISIS to rise to power. I think that because of this, ISIS thought that no one could stop them and that they'd be able to take over and have all the power. I also think that ISIS going to Syria was the most important that caused ISIS to rise to power. I think this because ISIS was able to gain more followers and they also had territory in Syria. Also, when ISIS went to Syria, some Sunnis joined ISIS because they were against the Shia government. In addition, Syria did not have a good military that would fight against ISIS. People should care about ISIS rising to power because they're a very dangerous terrorist group killing innocent civilians. Also, we need to stop ISIS because it's honestly just history repeating itself.
Above is a photo journal that me and my group put together that answers the question we were assigned. Our question was: "Who is ISIS (majority Sunnis or Shia? Upper, middle or lower class? Former military or civilian? What percentage are from western countries? How many members?)"
