Why would I need (or want) to travel to Syria? I can listen to people who have actually been there who do not have a vested interest in one side or the other winning (the UN). I can also listen to the many Syrian refugees who travel to and through my adopted country and the people who interview them (again, those without a vested interest in one side of the war there). I actually know personally a family of Syrian refugees. I don’t need to travel there, they are coming here by 10s of thousands (at least).
