Food is What Really Runs the World Just Look at Egypt and Tunisia

Egypt needs food

LONDON, Feb. 14 (UPI) -- As Egypt seeks to establish a new and
representative political system after the fall of the Mubarak regime, the
one helpful action the United States and Europe could take would be to
ensure that Egypt's drama doesn't turn into desperate tragedy by ensuring
its food supply.

Food shortages and rising prices were one of the underlying factors behind
the explosions in Tunisia and Egypt, with demonstrators brandishing loaves
of bread and complaining of the high price of staples like lentils. The
increased costs of feeding Egypt, the world's leading importer of wheat,
could topple the fledgling new government.
