As part of the reported $100 million dollar trip to Africa for Obama, family and entourage, a stop is made in the Senegalese capital of Dakar to announce the plans for pledging more money to boost food ‘security’ in West Africa.
“Since most people in Senegal work in agriculture, our food security initiative will keep helping farmers harness new seeds and technologies, increase yields and boost incomes,” Obama said.
Without mentioning the names of the corporate partners, Obama’s new seeds and technologies are obviously going to be from Monsanto and their ilk. It is their incomes that are anticipated to be boosted.
Feed the Future is another one of those Orwellian named organizations that serve the globalist corporations under the guise of helping the poor and hungry.
One of the initiative’s governmental partners is USAID.
The organizations only get funding according the their acquiescence to the government’s terms and conditions. Therefore, the ‘beneficent’ relationship is inextricably linked to the criteria of Western imperialism.
“Is there a tie-in to foreign intelligence in all this? Public records show that USAID has long been a front for CIA intelligence gathering, as well as a conduit for CIA funding to foreign governments and agencies.
Over the past 51 years, the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) has grown into a powerful multi-billion dollar political-cum-military weapon in the hands of the American establishment. USAID’s charter is explicit: To serve the foreign policy interests of the United States.
President Kennedy’s stated objective behind the creation of the USAID was to separate military aid from development aid. According to Eva Golinger, the author of ‘The Chavez code’, over the years USAID “merely became an additional fund for the CIA to dip into for covert interventions.” William Blum, a former employee of the US Department of State, maintains that there exists “a close working relationship with the CIA, and that Agency officers often operated abroad under USAID cover (Killing hope: US military and CIA interventions since WWII).” More recently, a former editor of the Japan Times asserted that the “CIA, through USAID, is running a disinformation campaign on Japan’s earthquake crippled nuclear facilities.”
Obama’s CIA “Mommy Dearest”
Intertwined in all this is the initiative of depopulation and Bill Gates is the face that defines it.
Gates’ latest plan is to try to end world hunger by growing more genetically modified (GM) crops.
He’s already invested $27 million into Monsanto Company—leading some countries to reject his charity due to the high risks, such as:
- New disease vectors
- Mutated pesticide-resistant insects
- Resistant “superweeds”
- Contamination of surrounding non-GM crops
Remember that Iraq was also Monsantoized…
To the rest of the world, Abu Ghraib is associated with inhuman torture, incarceration without trial and arrogant US unilateralism. To the farmers of Iraq, Abu Ghraib was better known for the national seed gene bank, started in the early 70s. In fact, Iraq’s most well-known wheat variety is known as ‘Abu Ghraib’. The country precious heritage is now all but lost.
Facing the same unsolicited adversary, Syria is under a similar threat. The Centre for Agricultural Research in Dry Areas (ICARDA) is situated there and still holds remaining samples of Iraq’s threatened seeds. It is worrying because the planned destruction of Iraq’s agriculture is not widely known. Modern Iraq is part of the ‘fertile crescent’ of Mesopotamia where man first domesticated wheat between 8,000 and 13,000 years ago, and home to several thousand varieties of local wheat. As soon as the US took over Iraq, it became clear its interests were not limited to oil. In 2004, Paul Bremer, the then military head of the Provisional Authority imposed as many as a hundred laws which made short work of Iraq’s sovereignty.
The most crippling for the people and the economy of Iraq was Order 81 which deals, among other things, with plant varieties and patents. The goal was brutally clear-cut and sweeping — to wipe out Iraq’s traditional, sustainable agriculture and replace it with oil-chemical-genetically-modified-seed-based industrial agriculture.
Essentially the same thing was done in Afghanistan…..easy entry to US agribusiness and pushes neoliberal policies, something that has always been a primary function of US development assistance, but is also an intrinsic part of the US military campaign in these countries and the surrounding regions.
The picture is clear. U.S. ‘humanitarian‘ food aid is yet another psyops for economic control with military overtones and for poisoning the populations and their lands. This latest initiative might as well be called “The Monsanto Solution for Useless Eaters.” At least that would be honest.
