I began to suspect that things were going off the tracks years ago when U.S. military recruiting commercials started featuring humanitarian aid just as prominently as their traditional emphasis on combat. It seemed as if the progressive agenda that was pervading our country was also imminent for our beloved military. It is now official: The progressive agenda isn’t just knocking on the military’s door, it kicked it in. According to the Washington Times,
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.
A new directive’s theme: The U.S. Armed Forces must show “resilience” and beat back the threat based on “actionable science.”
It says the military will not be able to maintain effectiveness unless the directive is followed. It orders the establishment of a new layer of bureaucracy — a wide array of “climate change boards, councils and working groups” to infuse climate change into “programs, plans and policies.
