concretebeach asks: Hey Ernie and the awesome crew of Shortform! I've asked a couple of questions in the past and you've gotten back to me fast and effectively. Thanks! Currently I am to write an article in my school newspaper about the occurring civil war in Syria. I've been following the events closely, but I want to be as accurate as possible. Would you recommend any particular websites or articles that clearly articulate the entire situation? I'm trying to write it this week and any help would be great. Thanks!
» SFB says: In cases like these, I think you want to for sure take a look at good timelines, and of the ones I’ve read, BBC totally does them the best. That is 80 years of research, constantly updated and brewed down to its finest points. For a more in-depth perspective of the past year, Al Jazeera English has a great interactive timeline that focuses specifically on the past year. If you have any questions, let us know — and shoot us a link when you publish your article! — Ernie @ SFB
