Nearly 50% of Pakistan Is Now ‘Food Insecure’

Pakistan is 160 million, with 77 million (48%) now ‘food insecure’, a 28% increase over this time last year.

Soaring food prices and shortages of staples mean about 77 million people of Pakistan’s 160 million population are food insecure, a 28 percent increase over the past year, according to U.N. World Food Program (WFP)¬†estimates.¬† Hunger Brings Anguish for Pakistan Millions

This is also reflected in the flour production, now cut by 50% from 80,000 bags of flour per day, to just 40,000.

    More sooner than later, All “HOLY” HELL is gonna bust loose in Pakistan (like it isn’t anyway) and Pakistan implodes, either before or at the onset of a Iranian ‘War’ (attack).

    Unlike Iran, Pakistan HAS PLENTY OF NUKES, and they are already on missiles/launchers. NTM, the vast collective of seriously pissed-off (not w/o ‘reasons’) radical voodoo worshippers and multiple radicalized autonomous/tribal regions

    When (not if) Pakistan implodes (‘radicals’ prevail), a billion Indians (those with access to food) all take a massive shit in unison. Israeli’s all live in bunkers shitting in plastic bags (take jehovah for gas masks).

    Dubya Dubya 3 ? Sure! Very likely, IMO.
    But, is the Paki-theater Part A? or Part B?

    I assume that only the ZioNeoNaziCons currently controlling the US think they know for sure.

    trivial density

    Mean population density per square mile for selected countries.

    NZ 15
    US 31
    China 357
    Pakistan 535 (no wonder they’re all pissed)
    UK 837 (well, that explains a lot)
    Japan 872

    The state with the highest density is Macau (PRC) w/ over 48,000
    The least dense is Greenland at less than 0.068

    Pakistan is a brewing kettle just about to burst from the seams and you know Iran will be there to pick the pieces up…

    The global plot thickens….

    Here is an interesting one (Britain urges return to WWII food frugality) from Britian regarding food:

    With food and energy prices soaring worldwide, a constant supply of high-quality, affordable food is no longer guaranteed, officials warn Britons. That could mean an era of scarcity like Britain’s 1940-54 food rationing, during the war and its aftermath.
