A lot of blood has been spilled in order to take control of and secure cities in Iraq’s Anbar Province, including Ramadi, and that city is now in ISIS hands:

President Obama will respond predictably today:
President Obama will use a Wednesday speech to highlight his view that climate change is one of the most significant military threats to the United States and the world.
Obama will argue in his address to graduates at the United States Coast Guard Academy that the fight against climate change is a fight for global peace and against the conflicts that lead to war, the White House said in a preview of his remarks.
“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,” Obama will tell the new Coast Guard officers, according to the White House. “And so we need to act — and we need to act now.”
The White House said in February that climate change threatens more people than terrorism, a position that has proven extremely controversial.
There could be ISIS terrorists in Al Gore’s foyer as an IS flag is hoisted over the US Capitol and the Obama administration wouldn’t stop chomping on the “climate change” rawhide. Heck, they blame climate change for ISIS. This is part of an EPA report that Obama’s going to talk about today:
These and other aspects of climate change are disrupting people’s lives and damaging certain sectors of the economy. The national security implications of climate change impacts are far reaching, as they may exacerbate existing stressors, contributing to poverty, environmental degradation, and political instability, providing enabling environments for terrorist activity abroad.
Shorter Obama-tized version: “Our strategies didn’t fail us, your SUV and dependence on coal did!”
Besides making climate change a top priority, President Obama is also focused on his new Twitter account:
Hello, Twitter! It's Barack. Really! Six years in, they're finally giving me my own account.
