Syria Crisis

Syria's six-year turmoil has entered a new stage, with the United States launching its first-ever unprovoked military attack against the government of Bashar Assad following a recent chemical attack that killed over 80 civilians.

With a political solution looking increasingly out of sight, Washington's intervention marks a deadly turning point, one that could lead to an even greater loss of life and political upheaval.

teleSUR examines the roots of the conflict, how it has developed and what this next stage might mean for Syria, the Middle East and the world.
