US Policy towards Syria
Several countries and influential people have attempted to pull down Bashar Al-Assad from power. This is because Assad is a very intelligent person and he is trying to play the Israel card to defeat other people…

Assad’s troops then disgorged the common anti-Israel bile (Hersh, 2011).
Therefore, Assad has proved to be very witty and stubborn to other nations like Israel. That is why the United States came in and it is now attempting to pull down Bashar Al-Assad from power. According to Timmerman Kenneth (2001), it has not been that easy because a few days ago Assad’s regime initiated mob assault on the French and American Embassies in Damascus meaning that he is already aware about their mission. Political stake in America is that President Obama is planning to command that Syrian powerful man Bashar Al-Assad steps down. The ultimate aim of this context is to respond to the question, will Assad leave the office as US is demanding and this will happen under what circumstances?
The only way to pull him down is through pressurizing him using different tactics. Therefore, this context looks at different strategies through which Assad may leave. There are three main strategies of approach that the US needs to employ as we shall see later (Hook, 2010). The following is a map of Syria showing major regions that are affected by political instability in the country. Timmerman, Kenneth R. 2001 Document Outcome Before the United States declares forceful removal of Assad from power, it has to examine both sides of the case. It must ensure that once the process is through, all the Syria citizens remain happy and at peace and the US itself as well as the international community is happy with the outcome of the process (Hersh, 2011). This means that the Obama administration must consider the US national interest and Syria’s national interest before taking any action. Therefore, the policy objectives that they lay down must be consistent to the expectations of Syrian citizens. The first policy objective to be considered is to ensure they employ a soft oratory scheme to avoid showing the world that they support the opposition group. Their focus should be on democratic principles and not just showing support to the opposition. If such a peaceful system is employed, the most probable outcome of US’s policy toward Syria will be a success in ensuring Assad is no longer in power, and people receive democracy (Hersh, 2011). Brief Background The gesticulate of Arab turbulence that began with the Tunisian rebellion of January 2011 extended all through to the Middle East Arab nations particularly to Syria in mid-March. During that time, residents of a diminutive city went to the streets to complain about the torment of students who had designed anti-regime graffiti. President Bashar al-Assad who inherited dictatorial leadership from his father pretended to be a compassionate leader at first since he hesitated in taking force and reform actions. However, in April 2011 after he had hosted the country’s decades-aged stratocracy, he initiated the first of what turned up to be a sequence of onslaught, sending tanks into restless cities and security troops began firing live bullets on students who were demonstrating. Note that later on, it was too hard to either stop the violence or take Assad’s political reform offers – neglected as impostors by remonstration leaders could end the political instability. According to Ze'ev Schiff (2002), the demonstrators have never managed to withstand direct physical attack from the military, armed forces. The conflict began as a small issue,

US Policy Towards Iran
The issue of U.S sanctions imposed on Iran has existed for the last 30 years. Since 1979, the two countries have had minimal economic cooperation. The U.S government has been trying to influence the Iranian economy by altering its interaction with the international community.
Even after the end of Cold War, Russo-American relations have not improved to the point of attaining sustainable and cordial economic exchanges. This means that Russia and America forego a lot of socioeconomic, political and technological gains, since Russia and America have profound interests in each other.
The focal point of the paper “The United States and Syria Conflict” is a conflict between the United States and Syria. Currently, the main concern of conflict is that it has been revealed that the Syrian government is said to be creating a program for nuclear weapons, and its allegiance with Iran.
This has left many doubts among both the Democrats and the Republicans concerning whether it was wise for the United States to get involved in the Syrian conflict in the first place. When the President declared his intention to attack Syria after what was suspected to be the Syrian government’s use of chemical weapons against its own people, it was expected that there would be a wide rift between the two parties in Congress.
The forces of hegemony in different parts of the world and especially in the Middle East region due to its potential if left unchecked. Syrian crisis is a good example of how hegemonic forces are played in in balancing between peace and security of a particular region.
Due to the present status of Syria this paper reports on the predictive study research on the relationship between U.S and Syria. In this study, the independent variables are military intervention of Syria and diplomatic actions of the US. The dependent variable that depends on these two independent variables is the peace status of Syria.
