Five years since the start of the uprising, Syria continues to find itself divided and embattled, with no satisfactory or even unsatisfactory end in sight. The Syrian tragedy continues to be shrouded in political power-plays and contradictions at the local, regional, and international levels. Defined increasingly by the absence of a clear favorable outcome, the logic of the lesser evil reigns supreme. This talk addresses the background and dynamics of the Syrian uprising, ending with the latest chapter: the Russian intervention and its implications.
