The Global Famine Begins: UN Announces That The Worst Food Crisis Since World War II Is Happening Right Now

The Global Famine Begins: UN Announces That The Worst Food Crisis Since World War II Is Happening Right Now:

We always knew that this would start happening.  Earlier this month, I wrote about the severe economic problems that are plaguing South America, but up to this point I have neglected to discuss the horrific famines that are breaking out all over Africa.  Right now there is a desperate need for food in South Sudan, Somalia, northeast Nigeria, Eritrea and Kenya.  And Yemen, even though it is not technically part of Africa, is being affected by many of the same factors that are crippling nations all over eastern Africa.  The United Nations says that more than 20 million people could die from starvation and disease if nothing is done.  When I write about economic collapse, this is the kind of thing that I am talking about, and we are starting to see alarming conditions spread across the globe.  Many believe that we could never possibly face this kind of food crisis in the western world, but unfortunately wishful thinking will only get you so far.

By Cynthia McKinney

Millions of barrels of oil have been spilled in Nigeria’s Delta region. Tired of the abuse, Nigerians just blew up a pipeline and a platform in an attempt to rectify what politicians and courts have been slow to do.

As a result of the deteriorating security situation, the Nigeria oil union announced that Shell and Chevron workers have been evacuated.

US Troops Headed to Front Lines in Nigeria’s War With Boko Haram

US Troops Headed to Front Lines in Nigeria’s War With Boko Haram:

The Pentagon is prepared to approve a new plan to redeploy ground troops already in Nigeria to the front lines of that nation’s war against Boko Haram, saying they will be positioned close to fighting but in a purely “non-combat role.”

The troops were originally sent to Nigeria for “training” of that nation’s military for the war on terror, and the redeployment would have them in “advisory” roles, putting them right in the middle of the action.
