A couple of weeks back I reported on a "perfect storm brewing" as a consequence of rising food prices due to poor harvests. Global impoverishment due to the financial crisis will mean that rising food prices cause malnutrition and starvation. And the financial elite are capitalizing off of rising food prices, spiking them still higher:
Humanity is facing so many challenges and yet the solution our "leaders" offer is more of the same:
U.S. and Allies to Hold Gulf Military Exercise Reuters 17 September 12
[Excerpted] Warships from around the world were assembling in the Gulf on Sunday for what the U.S. military described as the most widely attended international naval exercise ever held in the Middle East.

We are slowly but surely destroying the conditions necessary for successful human life on planet earth (see our vulnerable genome below) and now we are starting wars that polarize hidden players (such as Russia and China who support Iran), threatening to unleash an apocalypse that will finish more quickly our collective suicide.
