The Damascus Ruse

The Damascus Ruse

Written by George Thuemling

"The Syrian government has slipped closer and closer to total abdication as the Iranian grip on their military strengthens daily and the president is showing signs of age. The people of the country are caught in a civil war between the Assad regime, ISIS, and the allied efforts of Britain, America, and Israel against ISIS.
A ruse is proposed by Liam Strange at MI-6 to coax the people of Syria to throw off the shackles of foreign control of their proud and ancient land. What must be done to convince the people their government is not interested in their welfare? Miscalculation could thrust the entire region into war or worse."
