Climate change caused the Syrian civil war? That is what our genius president concluded in a star studded symposium.
PRESIDENT OBAMA: "There's already some really interesting work -- not definitive but powerful -- showing that the droughts that happened in Syria contributed to the unrest and the Syrian civil war. Well, if you start magnifying that across a lot of states, a lot of nation states that already contain a lot of poor people who are just right at the margins of survival, this becomes a national security issue. And, that's why even as we have members of Congress who scoff at climate change at the same time as they are saluting and wearing flag pins and extolling their patriotism they're not paying attention to our Joints Chief of Staff and the Pentagon who are saying this is one of the most significant national security threats that we face over the next fifty years
This whole disaster didn’t have anything to do Obama’s piss poor decision to pull our troops out of Iraq which created a vacuum for which ISIS capitalized? What about toppling Moammar Gaddafi? This Libyan dictator was defanged by the Bush administration and was cooperating in combating this war of Islamic terror only to have the Obama administration participate in the overthrow of his government. Now look at it. Libya is a basket case.
You know what? I’m waiting for Barack Obama to blame the failures of his administration on climate change because that phantom seems to be the cause for all of the world’s ills.
