If there were ever a sign that something is amiss, this may very well be it.

United Nations agricultural experts are reporting confusion, after figures show that China imported 2.6 million tons of rice in 2012, substantially more than a four-fold increase over the 575,000 tons imported in 2011.

Remember the underground cities built all over America

by the government, for the government, using YOUR tax dollars...

Buy low and Sell high. That's the normal reason.

Thanks for posting Paul..

More Interesting points contained in the article.

"If you still doubt China’s intentions and expectations, look to other governments, including our own, for signs that someone, somewhere is planning for horrific worst-case scenarios:

The Russians have scheduled 5,000 underground bunkers for completion this year.

Europe rapidly designed, built and stocked the so-called Doomsday Seed Vault in Svalbard, Norway, which contains tens of thousands of varieties of seeds and is supposed to preserve them in the event of Armageddon style events like asteroid impacts or nuclear war.

The United States government has been stockpiling tens of millions of emergency meals and other supplies and regionalizing their emergency distribution centers across the country (curiously, those supplies never made it to Hurricane Sandy victims)

The government has purchased nearly 2 billion rounds of ammunition in the last few years.

The Pentagon has been Actively War Gaming ‘Large Scale Economic Breakdown’ and ‘Civil Unrest’

China recently made a call, through their Xinhua news agency, for the complete disarmament of the American population (Behind every blade of grass…)"

Will the leadership share

with the people or keep all the goods for themselves?

The law cannot make a wicked person virtuous…God’s grace alone can accomplish such a thing.
