Syria is a country in the Middle East, located between Turkey and Iraq. Ghost covered the country during the Syrian Civil War, caused by Bashar Al-Assad killing his own people in 2011. Ghost covered the Civil War (which then, was called the Syrian Uprising) a lot during the 2011 run of True Capitalist Radio. One of his catchphrases during this run was "DEATH TO BASHAR AL-ASSAD!", which was because he was disgusted by Al-Assad's killing of his own people.
When Ghost came back in 2016, the country was under siege by ISIS in addition to Bashar Al-Assad's loyalists. Ghost frequently blamed Barack Obama's foreign policy for making ISIS rise in the first place, which his viewers had no choice but to believe him.
