The World Is Nine Meals From Widespread Revolution

The World Bank is boldly proclaiming that extreme food shortages and subsequent food riots will take place in the near future largely due to the rapid increase in food prices.
In their recent report, only released a few days ago, the World Bank cites the disturbing fact that there have been 51 food riots in 37 countries in recent memory due to high food prices and the further escalation of food prices has no end in sight. The World Bank further speculates that the present state of food prices could lead to political instability and this is the kind of stuff that wars are made of. And what is the number one cause of rising food prices according to the World Bank? It is the increasing demand (see attached PDF) for food from a growing population inside of China. The future military implications should be self-evident.
The staple crop of wheat has risen 18% in the past year.
Are Food Prices Being Artificially Being Manipulated for Purposes of Political Control?
Before answering this question, it might be more prudent to ask if the food distribution system can survive the economic catastrophe’s which are poised to ravage the world’s economies and subsequent money supplies. If the dollar ever collapses, the rest of the world currencies will fall like a row of dominoes. If the multinational corporations are broke, how will food be shipped? Remember, the United States has a $17 trillion dollar deficit, a $240 trillion unfunded set of liabilities and the derivative debt is placed at about $1.5 quadrillion dollars! Setting aside your cognitive dissonance for a moment, what does your common sense tell you about the long-term viability of the dollar?
There are even more dire factors to consider.The elite are busy buying up the world’s water supply as evidenced by T. Boone Pickens and his continuing acquisition of the Ogallala underground water aquifer which dominates water supplies from Texas to South Dakota. The Bush family has purchased water rights of a similar proportion in Paraguay and the globalist beat goes on. The bottom line is that there are too few people controlling a disproportionate amount of the world’s water supplies. And without the proper distribution of water, there is no food cultivation. Add to this concern is the fact that GMO’s are highly vulnerable to devastation because it is a genetic mono-crop..
