Remember the vicious behavior the left displayed whenever the topics of Iraq, Afghanistan and President George W. Bush came up? From Code Pink to Democrats like Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) came accusations that Bush lied about weapons of mass destruction. Anti-war protests were common. Legacy media picked up the meme. And one of the Democrats’ most influential benefactors devoted some of his wealth to elections in the U.S., with a key goal of limiting Bush to one term.
George Soros is in the news again, not for politics or wealth, or for attacking a US president’s war policy, but for his ties to more than 30 major news organizations. Those ties are explained in an article at Fox News about Soros’ connectivity to US media. Soros isn’t just known for his wealth—he’s also known for influencing politicos around the world.
A thought occurred to me as I read about those ties—did this wealthy man’s influence, especially with media and leftwing Democrats in the U.S., help to prolong the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan?
