ISIS has seized the ancient city of Palmyra, a UNESCO World Heritage site. It will soon be destroyed. It is considered one of the most enchanting sites in the Middle East. The U.N. called out for reinforcements but none came. I hope we have a lot of good photos and video.
But it’s climate change that’s the problem. Just ask Barack. How many people are still in this beautiful city to be tortured and killed?
President Obama spoke to the Coast Guard graduates today to tell them of the horror of global warming.
“Climate change is one of those most severe threats. This is not just a problem for countries on the coasts or for certain regions of the world. Climate change will impact every country on the planet. No nation is immune. So 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. So we need to act and we need to act now.”
“In his speech, Obama said denying climate change or refusing to deal with it is negligence and “dereliction of duty.” “If you see storm clouds gathering or dangerous shoals ahead you don’t just sit back and do nothing,” President Obama said Wednesday. “You take action to protect your ship, to keep your crew safe. Anything less is negligence. It is a dereliction of duty. So too with climate change.” “Denying it or refusing to deal with it endangers our national security,” Obama also said. “It undermines the readiness of our forces.”
ISIS is on the road to Damascus but it’s doubtful Barack has noticed.

In 2011, the citizens protested the cruel regime of al-Assad. Now they have ISIS.
A September 2011 anti-regime protest in Palmyra, which was just captured by ISIS. Feels like a different world. https://t.co/pYgqolmUMg

It’s the world’s problem but the world won’t answer.
