Will Rising Food Prices Start World War 3?


Instead of joy over the prospects of a beginning year, this New Year rang in with the rallying cries for regime change across the Middle East and North Africa.

The long-standing governments of countries in this region began to crash down in a heart-stopping explosion of riots of people clamoring to bring down the established governments of their respective countries.
