Trump’s New Syria Sanctions Could Finally Bring Down the Assad Regime

Long overdue Caesar Act comes into effect in an attempt to overturn Obama’s Syria failure.

BY BRENT NAGTEGAAL

For nine years, the Syrian civil war has raged on. Over 700,000 people have been killed and over 6 million others have been internally displaced from their homes. Another 5 million have escaped the country; some walked to Europe, but the majority are stuck inside Turkey. What’s left of the rebel fighters trying to overthrow the regime of Syrian President Bashar Assad are located inside the northwestern Idlib province, an enclave mixed with jihadis, freedom fighters and another million civilians living under the protection of a Turkish security umbrella. The result of Assad’s war is a human tragedy so unfathomable that it is barely considered by people outside the region.

Yet finally, change is coming to Syria.

Yesterday, the United States placed the most powerful financial sanctions yet upon the Syrian regime.

Known as the Caesar Syrian Civilian Protection Act, the legislation empowers the U.S. to sanction any nation or individual that does business with sectors critical to the survival of the Assad regime.
