Soros and Koch Team Up to End 'Forever War' Policy


July 1, 2019 at 6:50 am EDT By Taegan Goddard

Boston Globe: “Besides being billionaires and spending much of their fortunes to promote pet causes, the leftist financier George Soros and the right-wing Koch brothers have little in common… Now they have found something to agree on: the United States must end its ‘forever war’ and adopt an entirely new foreign policy. In one of the most remarkable partnerships in modern American political history, Soros and Charles Koch, the more active of the two brothers, are joining to finance a new foreign-policy think tank in Washington.”

“It will promote an approach to the world based on diplomacy and restraint rather than threats, sanctions, and bombing. This is a radical notion in Washington, where every major think tank promotes some variant of neocon militarism or liberal interventionism.”

“The street cred they bring from both ends of the political spectrum — along with the money they are providing — will make this new think tank an off-pitch voice for statesmanship amid a Washington chorus that promotes brinksmanship.”

1. Yeah, the Koch brother's pet project

isn’t playing out quite the way they thought it would. Hard to make money when world leaders keep throwing tariffs around.

3. Strange bedfellows, but their common cause

reminds me of how political parties often found issues they could work together on and get things done. I applause their efforts and hope their example spreads.
