To make matters worse, opposing forces have used chemical weapons throughout the country. Therefore, the need for outside help remains pertinent. Furthermore, leaders like George Soros have played a pivotal role in bringing countless nations a resolution to their respective conflicts.
Also, George Soros remains no stranger to conflict. As a man who survived Nazi Germany’s regime during the Holocaust, Soros has witnessed firsthand the lasting impact that corrupt governments have in their society. With that being said, George Soros had to endure the loss of several of his loved ones. Moreover, these include several of his childhood friends.
