Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!
The current conflict in Syria was ignited by the unjust military government mode of addressing rebellious civilians with military action and torture sparking an uprising to create a more civil government This contrary to the American Revolution, which was solely based on opposition towards the British rule and specifically the unjust taxation without representation. The Syrian War is an issue between the government and sections of civilians who are rebellious to the authority, whereas the American Revolution War was fought by the newly formed American states and English colonial masters. The length of time taken to end the American Revolutionary war is known, unlike the Syrian war, which is still going on and not known when it might end.
The main comparison between the Syrian revolutionary war and the American revolutionary war is that both the Syrian civilians and their American counter stood up against oppressive authorities. President Assad can be compared to the English colonial masters back then.
Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.

This is worth a good point!
The American revolutionary war received little attention from the international community unlike the Syrian revolutionary war, which has seen several parties having interest and some sending their military combats on Syrian ground.
