Statement on Syria

Statement from Will Ruger, Vice President of Research and Policy at the Charles Koch Institute, in response to the President’s December 19, 2018 tweet on Syria: 

“We commend President Trump’s plan to withdraw U.S. troops from Syria. It’s time to bring all of those troops home. The Syrian civil war remains a tragedy. However, U.S. security interests would be undermined by an enduring military presence in that country. Furthermore, continued U.S. military involvement would only prolong the civil war, not change the outcome.”

The Charles Koch Institute is working to expand the public debate about what foreign policy will make us more safe and secure. Find out more below:
