Mr. Speaker, bullet holes are still visible in the walls of cafes, and the graves are fresh for those lives that were stolen by ISIS fighters in the streets of Paris. Meanwhile, the President is in Paris talking about his priority--the real threat--climate change.
While America has been unable or unwilling to defeat ISIS, it has been front and center in the war on climate change. Former CIA Director Mike Morrell said: ``And we didn't go after oil wells--actually hitting oil wells that ISIS controls because we didn't want to do environmental damage.......''
The President has decided that the threat to the environment is more serious to him than the threat of ISIS terrorism.
Mr. Speaker, oil funds ISIS' murderous reign of terror, but the President's new limited war doctrine has one rule of engagement: no climate casualties.
Mr. Speaker, it is time for bombs to rain down over the ISIS war chest. Stop the flow of the blood oil. Not one more life should be lost because of a negligent and backwards strategy of a limited war based on climate change, an environmental-waged war that promotes not harming the environment over harming people.
And that is just the way it is.
