Syria and Lebanon like most Arab nations are inventions of European colonialist. These fabricated nations have no basis in history and were made with no consideration of ethnic divisions and historical ownership. This is why the Arab nations are failing. They are false nations invented by European powers and led for decades by dictators through brutal force and terror. Syria needs to be broken up into multiple states, as does Lebanon, Jordan, and Iraq. That is the only thing that will bring peace to these faux nations.
