Thread Name: BS: Global Rice Crisis
Subject: RE: BS: Global Rice Crisis
Global terrorism paid very well for the oil companies- oil has more than trebled in price from the 'crisis levels' of $30 a barrel since 2003, and profits of the oil firms have soared. No doubt forcing the price of basic foodstuffs through the roof will help the now- struggling futures traders, so the whole thing could be part of a much- needed welfare scheme for the rich.
Terrorism? Cui bono? Cherchez la famine....
