Why has the war been going on in Syria for seven years now?

Location: Syria is located in a very important strategic area in the Middle East. The Middle East is one of the most important areas on the planet. This is due to material factors. For example, Egyptian civilisation is more than 5,000 years old. Islamic civilisation that still exists since 1430 years ago, which was the reason for the development of Europe and the rest of the world as the Arabic language was the language of science at least half a millennium ago.

Material wealth: The Middle East is rich in resources. For example, the Arabian Gulf contains 45% of the world’s oil reserves. Sudan has arable land capable of feeding all Arabs. The greed of some governments has driven them to steal these resources in Arab countries as was the case in Iraq, Syria, and Yemen. The oppressed people of these and other countries are fully convinced that there are actors, especially from the West, who have worked for at least half a century to establish strong relations with repressive regimes such as the Assad family in Syria and the deposed regime of Hosni Mubarak in Egypt. This was in order to exploit the wealth of the country while wasting opportunities for their young citizens, even going as far as to persecute, capture, or kill them.
