We launched Geopolitics Alert shortly after Russia formally entered the war to support the Syrian government against Western-backed terrorists. We knew many people would be wondering “what is happening in Syria” and we wanted to offer a counterweight to the propaganda.
Syria is a volatile environment with world powers like the United States, Saudi Arabia, and Turkey duking it out to overthrow Syria’s popular government. Although the war itself is fairly cut and dry, imperial powers make the details and facts somewhat confusing.
Pro-war news concerning Syria runs deep. We provide an anti-imperialist perspective that’s not easy to find in other U.S. media outlets. The United States may claim to have a free press, but most citizens know this is not the case — especially when it comes to U.S. war.
Our Syria news archives contain hard news and analysis so you can stay informed. If you’re looking to cut through the imperialist propaganda and learn about the truth of this war, you’ve come to the right place.
