Food Shortages In US-Japan Spark Fears Of World War

Sorcha Faal, and as reported to her Western Subscribers

Dire reports coming from the two most powerful Western Nations of the United States and Japan are stating that in these economically powerful countries food shortages have begun to be seen.

From the United States the New York Sun News Service is reporting: "Major retailers in New York, in areas of New England, and on the West Coast are limiting purchases of flour, rice, and cooking oil as demand outstrips supply. There are also anecdotal reports that some consumers are hoarding grain stocks."

From Japan, Australia’s The Age News Service is reporting: “MARIKO Watanabe admits she could have chosen a better time to take up baking. This week, when the Tokyo housewife visited her local Ito-Yokado supermarket to buy butter to make a cake, she found the shelves bare.

“I went to another supermarket, and then another, and there was no butter at those either. Everywhere I went there were notices saying Japan has run out of butter. I couldn't believe it — this is the first time in my life I've wanted to try baking cakes and I can't get any butter," said the frustrated cook.

While soaring food prices have triggered rioting among the starving millions of the third world, in wealthy Japan they have forced a pampered population to contemplate the shocking possibility of a long-term — perhaps permanent — reduction in the quality and quantity of its food.”

So dire has the situation for dwindling World food stocks become that the United Nations has issued a dire warning about the looming dangers being faced by billions of people on our planet, and as we can read as reported by the Associated Press News Service:

"The U.N. chief warned Sunday that the world must urgently increase food production to ease skyrocketing prices and pledged to set up a task force on a crisis threatening to destabilize developing nations. The cost of food has increased by around 40 percent since mid-2007 worldwide, and the strain has caused riots and protests in countries like Cameroon, Burkina Faso, Haiti and Egypt."

Even more ominous, however, are the warnings being issued by the International Monetary Fund, and as we can read as reported by the Reuters News Service:

"The worst of the instability and rioting caused by the skyrocketing cost of staple foods may yet come, International Monetary Fund (IMF) head Dominique Strauss-Kahn told a French radio station on Friday. 'The worst of the crisis may be before us,' Strauss-Kahn, a former French finance minister, told Europe 1 radio. 'Hundreds of millions of people will be affected.'

The IMF head also said that democratically elected governments may be toppled because of the crisis, even though they enacted correct policies.

Strauss-Kahn also invoked the possibility of regional warfare provoked by the rising cost of foods such as maize, rice and wheat."

But, to the greatest dangers facing our World today is the breaking down of resistance by many of the Western Nations facing food shortages to the planting and use of genetically modified crops, and where it is now being reported that “Japan and South Korea, some manufacturers for the first time have begun buying genetically engineered corn for use in soft drinks, snacks and other foods.”

As we had previously stated in our March 26, 2008, report, “Fears Grow Over ‘Catastrophic’ US Biosphere Collapse”, the use of genetically modified crops in the United States, and where nearly 75 percent of their food is infected with these modified strands of DNA, is causing the destruction of their ability to feed themselves as their bee and bat pollinator species are being completely destroyed.

Even more dangerous for humanity are that these Western Nations are continuing their promotion of bio-fuels (using the World’s grain stocks to produce fuel) as the World’s gain stocks fall to record low of just 12 weeks supply to feed a Global population nearing 7 million. And to our World’s ability to increase our dwindling food supply even more dire warnings are being issued by the Christian Scientist News Service, and is are reporting:

“A rough calculation by Brown finds that just to feed the addition to the world population each year would take some 640 square miles of good new farmland. That's an area approximately the size of Greater London, or Los Angeles County, or 18 million football fields.

The problem is that although tropical forests in the Amazon region, Indonesia, and the Congo are being chopped down for timber and to create farmland, the amount of farmland around the world has been shrinking through desertification – not growing.

Moreover, the growth of yields from the world's grain fields has declined from 2.1 percent a year between 1950 and 1990 during the height of the "green revolution" to 1.2 percent a year since then.”

To the greatest paradox, however, in a World teetering on the edge of an abyss in its ability to feed itself, are the reports from the United States that they make up the largest percentage of the estimated 1.6 billion overly obese and are spending ‘roughly $1 billion a year to shed a few pounds’.

One cannot help but wonder how much better spent this $1 billion a year would be if used to plant home gardens instead of being wasted for the purpose of human vanity, especially as the growing Global food crisis will, for certain, eliminate those ‘extra pounds’ as these people begin to queue up for their meager rations once their government takes complete control of their shrinking food stocks.

To those people who have foreseen, and prepared for, this Global food crisis an even greater danger lurks in that they are now being labeled as ‘hoarders’ and will be powerless as their military and police forces confiscate their stocks of food and grains and imprison them for their crimes against their fellow citizens.

As Egypt, India, Indonesia and Vietnam have all taken steps to block rice exports and Argentina, Kazakhstan, Russia and Ukraine have cut grain exports, and as the United States continues its collapse in its ability to feed its own people, our World today stands yet another step closer to Total War.    .
