Starvation and the Middle East

A lot of the folktales we were told as children involved starving peasant children begging for scraps of bread. [SNIP] It is a region that is troubling the world needlessly when you consider the big picture. The Middle East-North Africa (MENA) region has 500 million Arabs, Persians, North Africans and others living in an area with an agricultural system that can support half that number.

Now what? Is Obama going to bring all the third world trash from there?

That is certainly a grim, grim picture of the future. It reminds me of the Hindu concept of Kali Yuga, which some Hindus think we are in now.

From the Wikipedia entry, one of the attributes of a Kali Yuga as stated by Markandeya in the Mahabharata is:

People will start migrating, seeking countries where wheat and barley form the staple food source.


Check out the rest of it; it´s pretty familiar stuff, like:
Lust will be viewed as socially acceptable and sexual intercourse will be seen as the central requirement of life.

We know many Christians think the Apocalypse is near, as has been the case for 2000 years. It turns out it all more or less coincides with like thinking in India.

Grim, but real. We ought to spend our time and treasure ensuring our own survival in these vicious times. But even with us, the most important takeaway (IMHO) from the article is this:

"While they are being fed, they breed."

Since 1947 Israel has labored and made their little desert land country bloom. The resulting abundance feeds huge numbers of people far beyond that country.

In contrast, after over 1000 years, what do the surrounding desert countries produce?

Peak China
American Thinker, by David Archibald    Original Article
Posted By: HedgehogInOz- 8/8/2014 11:42:15 PM     Post Reply
China has become wealthier in the last couple of decades but unfortunately is using some of that new wealth for military adventures against its neighbours. The neighbours aren’t happy. Over 60 percent of the people in countries bordering the South China Sea fear Chinese aggression and expect imminent war. If China keeps growing their economy that will only make them more capable militarily and more aggressive. [SNIP] That is why we can be forgiven for anticipatory schadenfreude as these nasty and aggressive countries overreach and become undone.

Some Latino Democrats, saying they are fed up with President Barack Obama’s broken promises on immigration reform, are threatening to sit out the midterm elections and claim there will be backlash at the ballot box come November. “Maybe only by paying a price at the polls will Democrats finally stop throwing us under the bus,” Carmen Velasquez, founder and retired executive director of Alivio Medical Center in Chicago, wrote in Politico Magazine. Immigration activists are voicing their anger on social media and in the press about Pres. Obama abandoning his pledge to act on immigration by the end of summer, instead delaying

Half of all bird species in North America — including the bald eagle — are at risk of severe population decline by 2080 if the swift pace of global warming continues, the National Audubon Society concluded in a study released Monday. "The scale of the disruption we´re projecting is a real punch in the gut," said Gary Langham, chief Audubon scientist. (Snip) By 2080, the bald eagle, the national symbol of the United States, could see its habitat decrease by 75%, the report says. All of the habitat of the common loon, the state bird of Minnesota, could disappear in the lower 48

This morning, New York Times reporter Kim Severson spiced up her obituary for Chick-fil-A founder S. Truett Cathy by tagging him "a symbol of intolerance" who presided over a "restaurant chain [seen by some] as a symbol of hate." Here´s the relevant excerpt (emphasis mine): When he introduced himself, S. Truett Cathy often played down his job. “I cook chicken for a living,” he would say. And on the surface, that was true. Mr. Cathy, who died on Monday at 93, was by all appearances a humble Christian man from Georgia with little education who sold a simple sandwich: a

WASHINGTON--US President Barack Obama will tell the American people on Wednesday night that he plans to order strikes against Islamic State forces in both Syria and Iraq until the group is ultimately destroyed. The president´s plan includes additional support for opposition militias in Syria vetted by the United States, which will serve as a ground force complementing America´s air campaign. [Snip] The "comprehensive strategy," as described by one White House official, will involve "US military action and support for the forces combating ISIL [Islamic State] on the ground–both the opposition in Syria and a new, inclusive Iraqi government."

SPOTTED: Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee sporting a pair of white flip-flops with her pearls while on the House floor on Monday. While the Texas Democrat was all business on top — wearing a red suit jacket with a black and white scarf and pearl necklace — she was ready to hit the beach on the bottom, with her toe-baring shoes. The House feed on C-SPAN did not capture the summer recess-worthy thongs. An ITK spy who observed the warm weather footwear noted that earlier on Monday, Jackson Lee delivered a one-minute speech behind a podium near the center of the

Megyn Kelly tonight brought viewers the first part of her contentious showdown with Professor Ward Churchill, best known for his controversial comments about the “little Eichmanns” who were in the World Trade Center when the planes hit on September 11th. Churchill came under intense scrutiny and was fired by the University of Colorado at Boulder. What concerned Kelly most in the first part of the interview was that “little Eichmanns” comment, the argument being that Eichmann played a role in horrible atrocities even though he didn’t directly carry out the Final Solution, which he views as similar to the financial

Free money for everyone! With weak job growth, rising poverty, and the rich continuing to devour nearly all economic growth, it´s an idea that is gaining more credence. Arguments for a universal basic income (UBI) — in which everyone without exception would receive an equal stipend — have flourished in policy-centric areas of the internet, including The Week. Advocates of UBI see it as a blunter, more effective means of reducing poverty and shrinking the inequality gap. But even if UBI proponents are right on the merits, Tyler Cowen argues that the politics of the issue are not favorable. Under

See, kids, this is why you don’t do drugs. And this is why you will always eventually regret voting for somebody who boasted of all the coke and dope he did while smoldering about his absentee father.President Choom Gang has demilitarized our military. He sends the Department of Health and Human Services to the Mexican border to welcome and take care of tens of thousands of illegal children streaming across. And now he wants to deploy American troops into West Africa to combat the Ebola virus. Boy, is this confusing. Mr. President, with all due respect: Are you still smoking dope? Just when

Speaking to students at Booker T. Washington High School in Atlanta on Monday, first lady Michelle Obama stressed the value of higher education for everyone. "Do you hear what I´m telling you?" she asked the students. "Because I´m giving you some insights that a lot of rich kids all over the country -- they know this stuff, and I want you to know it, too. Because you have got to go and get your education. You´ve got to." Mrs. Obama went to Atlanta to take part in a back-to-school "prep" rally with Education Secretary Arne Duncan and other administration

A new report from NBC claims that President Obama couldn´t get a tee time during a recent visit to New York. So he packed up and went home (before returning to New York the next night for a private wedding). "President Obama was turned down at several top golf courses in Westchester while he was visiting the area over Labor Day weekend, sources tell NBC 4 New York," the report states. "Club managers apparently did not want to inconvenience their high-powered and high-paying members over Labor Day weekend by shutting down their courses to accommodate the president.

Scandal: Despite the administration´s claim, the CIA operatives who fought for their lives and others´ from a rooftop say that a stand-down order may have cost four Americans their lives while their ignoring it saved others. (Snip)There was even a second stand-down order, according to the trio in their book, "13 Hours: The Inside Account of What Really Happened in Benghazi," written with Mitchell Zuckoff. After Tiegen insisted they had to leave right away, "Bob" told them to "hold up" because "we´re going to let the local militia handle it." It was an incredible order, one telling Americans not to
