Syria has become the bloodiest uprising of the Arab Spring and has now descended into a full-blown civil war. Find out what's behind the conflict and what's at stake for the international community.

There's tons of information about Syria's ongoing conflict floating around on the Internet these days, but not much that lays out the basic facts for those who aren't experts on the Middle East. This is a great informative video from the Associated Press, that in two-minutes will give you some much needed context for what you'll be seeing and reading in the news for the next few weeks.
