    A grim report prepared by France’s General Directorate for External Security (DGSE) obtained by Russia’s Foreign Intelligence Service (SVR) states that president’s Obama and Sarkozy have “agreed in principal” to create a joint US-European military force to deal exclusively with a Global uprising expected this spring as our World runs out of food.

    According to this report, Sarkozy, as head of the G-20 group of developed Nations, called for and received an emergency meeting with Obama this past Monday at the White House wherein he warned his American counterpart that the shock rise in food prices occurring due to an unprecedented series of disasters was threatening the stability of the entire World and could lead to the outbreak of Total Global War.

    Just last week French Prime Minister Francois Fillon underlined that one of France’s top G-20 priorities was to find a collective response to “excessive volatility” in food prices now occurring, a statement joined by Philippe Chalmin, a top economic adviser to the French government, who warned the World may face social unrest including food riots in April as grain prices increase to unprecedented highs.

    The fears of the French government over growing Global instability was realized this past week after food riots erupted in Algeria and Tunisia and left over 50 dead. So dire has the situation become in Tunisia that their government this morning rushed in massive amounts of troops and tanks to their capital city Tunis and instituted a Nationwide curfew in an order to quell the growing violence.

    The United Nations, also, warned this past Friday that millions of people are now at risk after food prices hit their highest level ever as Global wheat stocks fell to 175.2 million tons from 196.7 million tons a year ago; Global corn stocks are said may be 127.3 million tons at the end of this season, compared with last month’s USDA outlook for 130 million tons; and Global soybean inventories will drop to 58.78 million tons at the end of this season, from 60.4 million tons a year earlier.

    Robert Zoellick, president of the World Bank, further warned this past week that rising food prices are “a threat to global growth and social stability” as our World, for the first time in living memory, has been warned is just “one poor harvest away from chaos”.

    Important to note about how dire the Global food situation has become is to understand the disasters that have befallen our World’s top wheat growing Nations this past year, and who in descending order are: China, India, United States, Russia, France, Canada, Germany, Ukraine, Australia and Pakistan.

    From China’s disaster: 2010 China drought and dust storms were a series of severe droughts during the spring of 2010 that affected Yunnan, Guizhou, Guangxi, Sichuan, Shanxi, Henan, Shaanxi, Chongqing, Hebei and Gansu in the People’s Republic of China as well as parts of Southeast Asia including Vietnam and Thailand, and dust storms in March and April that affected much of East Asia. The drought has been referred to as the worst in a century in southwestern China.

    From India’s disaster: A record heat wave and growing water crisis in India are forcing politicians to consider implementing user fees and other measures to conserve water. Sri Lanka’s President Mahinda Rajapaksa yesterday instructed ministers and officials to prepare a strategic plan to face an impending food crisis as there were signs that the World is to confront a food shortage by next April.

    From Russia’s disaster: (10% of total World’s output, 20% for export) they were hit by the highest recorded temperatures Russia has seen in 130 years of recordkeeping; the most widespread drought in more than three decades; and massive wildfires that have stretched across seven regions, including Moscow.

    From France’s disaster: The French government lowered their wheat crop forecast by 2.7% over last year due to drought and cold weather.

    From Canada’s disaster: Record setting drought has affected their main grain producing provinces in the Western part of their Nation.

    From Ukraine’s disaster: (the World’s top producer of barley and sixth biggest of wheat) hit as hard as Russia by fire and drought to the point they have halted all their exports of grains in 2011.

    From Australia’s disaster: Fears of a Global wheat shortage have risen after the Queensland area of Australia was hit by calamitous flooding. Andrew Fraser, Queensland’s State Treasurer, described the floods as a “disaster of biblical proportions”. Water is covering land the size of France and Germany. It is expected to reach over 30 feet deep in some areas in coming days.

    From Pakistan’s disaster: Floods have submerged 17 million acres of Pakistan’s most fertile crop land, have killed 200,000 herd of livestock and have washed away massive amounts of grain and left farmers unable to meet the fall deadline for planting new seeds, which implies a massive loss of food production in 2011, and potential long term food shortages.

    Not only have the vast majority of our World’s top wheat producers been affected, but also one of the main grain producing regions on the Planet, South America, has been hit by disasters too where an historic drought has crippled Argentina and Bolivia, and Brazil, that regions largest Nation, has been hit with catastrophic floods that have killed nearly 400 people in the past few days alone.

    Even the United States has been hit as a catastrophic winter has seen 49 of their 50 States covered by snow causing unprecedented damage to their crops in Florida due to freezing weather, and record setting rains destroying massive numbers of crops in their most important growing region of California.

    And if you think that things couldn’t get any worse you couldn’t be more mistaken as South Korea (one of the most important meat exporters in Asia) has just this past week had to destroy millions of farm animals after an outbreak of the dreaded foot-and-mouth disease was discovered.

    To how horrific the Global food situation will become this year was made even more grim this past month when the United States reported that nearly all of their honey bee and bumblebee populations have died out, and when coupled with the “mysterious” die-off of the entire bat population in America means that the two main pollinators of fruit and vegetable plants will no longer be able to do their jobs leading to crop losses this report warns will be “biblical and catastrophic”.

    Chillingly to note is that after meeting with Sarkozy, Obama began implementing his Nation’s strategy for keeping the truth of this dire events from reaching the American people by ordering all US citizens to have an Internet ID so that they can be tracked and jailed should they begin telling the truth.

    And so today, as agricultural traders and analysts warn that the latest revision to US and Global stocks means there is no further room for weather problems, a new cyclone is preparing to hit Australia, brutal winter weather in India has killed nearly 130, and more snow is warned to hit America, and we’re not even two full weeks into 2011… may God have mercy on us all.

    Can you provide us a link ?

    Screw the UN.

    Yet another fabricated crisis to try and control the world.

    H1N1 didn't pan out.
    Global warming didn't pan out.
    From the link posted:
    "Even the United States has been hit as a catastrophic winter has seen 49 of their 50 States covered by snow causing unprecedented damage to their crops in Florida due to freezing weather, and record setting rains destroying massive numbers of crops in their most important growing region of California".

    49 of 50 states covered by snow? Really? Who's the 50th state?
    Washington has had an average winter this year. It's currently 56 degrees and drizzling. Today is Jan 16th in case you didn't know. It's also a La Nina' year. We're just dandy here, as is Oregon, California, Arizona, Nevada, New Mexico, Texas, Alaska, Idaho...

    It's weather. It changes. It's NOTHING we've never been through before. What's the big deal?

    America is the bread basket of the world. Maybe a world wide food shortage will help balance our trade deficit? Good for us!:D But that's not the UN agenda is it?:rolleyes:

    And our government keeps pushing the blue helmets.:mad:

    Haven't we done enough already? We've done more for the world than all other countries combined. Science, technology, food production, foreign aid, supporting freedom, fighting oppression, shedding US blood for others rights...

    When does it stop? When do we get a thank you?

    'No child left behind' doesn't work, so let's try 'No country left behind'?:confused:

    Get us out. NOW!:mad::mad::mad:

    Or as George Washington put it in 1796 -

    The great rule of conduct for us in regard to foreign nations is in extending our commercial relations, to have with them as little political connection as possible

    I agree with Bob!

    Even if there is a world-wide food crisis, there won't be a food crisis here. We have an enormous abundance of food production.

    The issue isn't production; the issue is logistics. There is plenty of food for everyone.

    And the UN wants to control the logistics. Hmmm...

    Anyone else have an opinion on how well the UN works?
    As a political organization bent on ruling the planet, they get an A+.

    As a compassionate intermediary helping the downtrodden, they FAIL miserably.

    There is NO reason for this body to exist. NONE!:mad:

    IMO, you hit it right on the head! Our "leaders" need to keep control, how better, than to keep us in fear! The communist threat, global warming, et al, ad nauseum, are ways, via media, polititians, lawyers, etc, to keep the sheeple dependant on the Gov to "rescue" them from impending doom! Watch the news, words are being used with more and more frequency, such as disaster,catastrophe,pandemic,epidemic, words used to instill feelings of helplessness and fear!

    The UN has NO place on US soil, and I pray with all my heart that no POTUS feels the need to bring foriegn troops on US soil, EVER!

    Read a fiction novel by Michael Critchton called State of Fear. Granted it is a fiction/thriller novel, but the author uses real data to back up his statements, interesting and entertaining read. I do believe that he makes some VERY good points in the story.

    I believe the predictions of shortages based on reduced production due to climate are real. But this will be yet another opportunity to redistribute wealth.

    Look at it this way. When those with no health insurance and no means to pay are ill, they are still treated. The cost is then passed on to those who do pay and the insurance companies. Basically a redistribution of wealth.

    We could use this to our advantage, using produce like the arabs use oil; to supplement our own incomes. But it wont happen.

    Make no mistake; the world will be fed to the extent that the producers are able but expect your grocery bill to increase significantly as you subsidize world wide food consumption.

    Higher prices at the grocery store translates into less real income. Less income translates into crime as some seek to supplement their income. There could be nationwide, even worldwide, protests which turn violent.

    The threat is real but as Bobitis says it will just be an opportunity to strengthen the UN, and to further integrate the member nation's armed forces into a world-wide police force.

    Maybe it wont become that severe but the dangerous thing in the immediate future is that the alliances are being forged to unify the worlds military under a UN banner.

    Perhaps I speak out of line here, but as far as I am concerned, ANY foriegn military on US soil is an invading army, period.

    I swore to defend my country against all enemies, foriegn and domestic. I do not recall being relieved of that oath.

    And if the UN is our ally as declared by our government?

    I think its pretty clear that our own military won't fight our own citizens. They swore an oath to the constitution.

    So now the government is scheming to bring in the blue helmets. The government WE elected.

    I have a problem with that. But I'm in the minority these days.:(

    This story really underscores how far we have moved away from the vision of our country's founders.

    I think our country's founders would have admired Switzerland, at least through the 20th Century - The Swiss managed to stay neutral through both world wars, their currency was back up by gold reserves, and instead of a large standing army they had hundreds of thousands of "citizen soldiers".

    Sadly, the Swiss are abandoning their gold standard, and they joined the UN in 2002.

    The UN is a cancer.

    Our government no longer, as a whole, or should I say, in general, works for those that put them in office. They mostly have their own self-interest in mind. So, with that said my statement above about foriegn soldiers on US soil stands. And I don't really care who our government declares an "ally". No armed foriegn troops on US soil,period.

    I don't think the minority you speak of is quite the minority you may think, more and more folks these days are getting fed up with the nanny-state mentality of our governing body!
