ISIS has invaded countries including Iraq and Syria, and has posted Internet videos of its savage beheadings of Westerners and others.
Russia has defied international law by invading the Ukraine.
North Korea is threatening to blow South Korea to kingdom come and to shoot nuclear-capable missiles toward the U.S.
Terrorists abroad are planning violent acts against U.S. interests, while terrorists on the mainland are planning violent acts here at home.
So, what does President Obama decide to highlight as a national security threat during a recent speech to Coast Guard cadets? Global warming. Yep, that’s our president, always in touch with what really matters most.
In his speech he said, “I am here today to say that climate change constitutes a serious threat to global security, an immediate risk to our national security, and, make no mistake, it will impact how our military defends our country.” He added that, “climate change will shape how every one of our services plan, operate, train, equip and protect their infrastructure.”
He added that climate change can aggravate poverty and social tensions that can fuel instability and foster terrorist activity and other violence.
Wow, that’s quite a stretch, even for him. If you were asked to speak about national security threats to a group of cadets, which issue would you choose as the most important? And, no fair choosing the endangered crawling water beetle. Rumor has it that’s Obama’s topic for next year.
