Food insecurity in the world’s poorest countries reached record highs in 2020, with millions staring at famine, a situation exacerbated in part by the COVID pandemic, according to a UN report.

Let them eat capitalism. No starving in our country no matter what the rats say.
Catch more fish, plant more crops, have fewer babies. I’ve lost all compassion for the irresponsible of this planet.
I have heard the same story and have seen the same commercials on TV since the early 60’s, Every one of these Countries has an Economic System and Government other than Capitalism and Freedom.
It used to be “hunger”.
There being no more hunger, now it’s “food insecurity”.

And of course the US and Trump will be blamed; Trump because they can’t or won’t blame ChinaJoe.
Good thing the lockdowns contained the coronavirus.
Famine in these modern days is man induced; specifically government induced.
Sorry but we’re fighting climate change now. We’ll get back to you once that’s fixed.
Covid, what can't it do?! Global warming better watch out, because China Virus is about to catch your butt as the universal excuse, the reason for everything!
Don’t worry, “Mr. Vaccine”, is working on depopulation.
The Soros/Gates/Buffett plan is working!
It’s just Cultural Darwinism.
let me see 155 million on a planet with 8 billion people.
that is about .000019 of the people on earth.
I hate to see people go hungry but........
Imagine if the Global Network Against Food Crisis issued a report that said “everything’s hunky dory and everyone has full stomachs. They’d have no reason to exist so of course they’ll report the worst case.
The Global Network Against Food Crises.
They wouldn’t ever exaggerate.
Generation after generation raised to accept food aid from the UN and other NGOs. It will be a Darwinian purge.
Soros and his DemonRATs approve.
