John Kerry's foreign policy

PL ISIS Climate Change

Secretary of State John Kerry (did you know he served in Vietnam?) has foreign policy so muddled  that - when you mix all the colors together you get brown. He says that climate change is the biggest foreign policy challenge we face. 

The cartoon shows where he is headed. Who is at risk because of his mulled thinking? You and me.

Correction: The cartoon shows where distinguished SoS Kerry already is - this week! CNS News:

During his opening remarks at the NYC Climate Week event on Monday, a summit coinciding with the United Nations General Assembly in New York City, Secretary of State John Kerry called climate change the “most serious challenge we face on the planet,” claiming the threat beats out other international concerns such as terrorism, poverty and weapons of mass destruction. He spoke just hours before the U.S. bombed Syria.

“And when you think about terrorism, which we think about a lot today; poverty, which is linked obviously to the levels of terror that we see in the world today; and, of course, proliferation of weapons of mass destruction – all of these are challenges that don’t know any borders,” Kerry told government leaders and representatives from around the world.

“And that’s exactly what climate change is,” he said. “Importantly, climate change, without being connected in that way to everybody’s daily thinking, in fact, ranks right up there with every single one of the rest of those challenges. You can make a powerful argument that it may be, in fact, the most serious challenge we face on the planet because it’s about the planet itself."

Kerry also deviated from calling climate change an “environmental challenge,” choosing instead to classify it as an “international security threat.”
