This article examines the patterns of international interventions in Syria from 1946 to 2011 in the three sub-periods 1946-1970, 1971-1997 and 1998-2011. It underlines the weakness of existing literature on the causes of international intervention in Syria in 2011. The author argues that the consecutive international interventions in Syria from 1946 to 2011 reflect interwoven relations between the capitalist system, imperialist interventions for the regime change and domestic factors.
