No... it is true. Syria's population was 6.4 million in 1970, 9 million in 1980, 12.5 million in 1990, 16.4 million in 2000 and 21.5 million in 2010. Not really slowing down within that time frame. It has only stopped growing since 2010, by which point there was already a severe drought and large-scale unrest.
Growth from 1970-1980: 2.6 million
Growth from 1980-1990: 3.5 million
Growth from 1990-2000: 3.9 million
Growth from 2000-2010: 5.1 million
That ain't slowing down.
