It was about food shortages caused by hyperinflation by the Bernanke policies or Obama policies that caused food to go up 100% in arab countries This became a problem because some of the despots did not increase the welfare to those not working.

In fact the al quaeda groups getting into power because of our ineptness are doing just the opposite on freedom issues.

We have our own serious problems and i am not an ISOLATIONIST
