One wonders if our government purchase of 1.5B hollow point rounds is in lieu of rice.
The drought. BTW, when China has drought so does North America. Could be the Chinese see a continuation into 2013 and we should know by late February how bad it will be. Right now it looks really really really really bad. http://www.cpc.ncep.noaa.gov/products/expert_assessment/seasonal_drought.html
So what are we stockpiling? Seems that Obama is drawing down all our stockpiles and reserves, while putting our industry in the gutter. Also making Americans dependent on food handouts. This can’t end well for us. China will be our new overlords, and we’ll learn to love rice (I like the stuff but not if it is all we’ll find to eat when TSHTF).
