Nothing puts the spotlight on Europe’s and USA’s foreign policy debacle better than the Syria crisis and the waves of “refugees” pouring into Europe.
It is a policy catastrophe that will surely multiply in size over the coming months and years ahead, and especially puts European security a risk. Naturally Europe’s leading politicians are desperate to find an excuse. They’ve found one, it appears – so at least has Jean Pascal Van Ypersele, Vice-Chair of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC): climate change.
Belgian television here presents a clip of Van Ypersele’s view on what is behind the Syrian civil war and refugee crisis. I’ve translated his words from the French to English:
Exactly now is the time to ask questions. You know that there have been a number of studies published over the last months that show the drought in the Middle East and in the region of Syria over many years is probably a factor that amplified in any case the difficulties of the region. It shows very well, this example of Syrian migrants, these Syrian refugees, that the problems are linked to the question of climatic change, that climate change is linked to an entire series of other questions.”
This is one of the most dishonest claims coming from a person who was educated at a Catholic institution. Such people, and our current Pope, really have succeeded in destroying whatever remaining faith I previously had in the Church in the wake of the child molestation affairs.
Such dishonesty and deception just cannot be followed. These totally incompetent leaders flat out refuse to take any responsibility whatsoever – for anything. For them it’s a game of shirk and blame, and it’s just mind-blowingly awful and morally disgusting.
