Just when you think you’ve seen it all, our military leadership shows that they can accomplish new lows. From the Washington Times comes this,
“A new Pentagon report says that climate change is an “urgent and growing threat to our national security” and blames it for “increased natural disasters” that will require more American troops designated to combat bad weather.
The Pentagon is ordering the top brass to incorporate climate change into virtually everything they do, from testing weapons to training troops to war planning to joint exercises with allies.
To four-star generals and admirals, among them the regional combatant commanders who plan and fight the nation’s wars, the directive tells them: “Incorporate climate change impacts into plans and operations and integrate DoD guidance and analysis in Combatant Command planning to address climate change-related risks and opportunities across the full range of military operations, including steady-state campaign planning and operations and contingency planning.” (1)
So, don’t worry about new Russian heavy tanks and infantry fighting vehicles. Don’t worry about Russian expansionism. Don’t worry about Russian and Chinese stealth fighters. Don’t worry about Chinese expansionism. Don’t worry about the massive buildup of Chinese military forces. Don’t worry about N.Korea’s nuclear ambitions. Don’t worry about
’s nuclear program, their state sponsored support of
terrorism. Don’t worry about any of
that. Climate change is our real enemy. Iran
Ignoring that there are as many or more scientific studies that debunk climate change as support it and that the bulk of climate change studies have been shown to be flawed or outright falsifications, it’s not the job of the military to be concerned about climate change. The military exists to fight wars. It’s that simple. Everything else, whether it’s social engineering, diversity, gender equality, humanitarian assistance, or whatever, just takes away from that.
Where are the military leaders who are willing to resign in protest over the emasculation of our armed forces?
