Wednesday Night Owls: Antiwar groups coalesce to push Biden toward a new foreign policy
Night Owls, a themed open thread, appears at Daily Kos seven days a week
John Nichols at The Nation writes—Anti-War Groups Push Biden and the Democrats to Rethink Foreign Policy:
More than 50 groups seeking “a more principled foreign policy, one that prioritizes diplomacy and multilateralism over militarism” wrote an open letter last month to presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden. “It is time,” they argued, “to end our endless wars and adopt a new approach to international relations, one in which the U.S. abides by international law, encourages others to do the same, and utilizes our military solely for the defense of the people of our country.”
The letter, which made a practical case for Biden and the Democrats to embrace a more progressive approach to international affairs, was organized by Demand Progress and signed by organizations such as MoveOn, Indivisible, Just Foreign Policy, Peace Action, and the Quincy Institute for Responsible Statecraft.
