    Robert Fisk in the Independent mentions the massacre in his latest column.

    Why did conventional historians blame Germany for the breakout of the WW1?

    You are undoubtedly aware that, as with most people, my definition of a good analysis is one that agrees with me. :devil: The carnage of WWI when I began school (I recall that one week we sang God Save the King, then a week later that was changed to God Save the Queen, to give a time to it)...

    Great analysis S W VC - good to hear from someone that knows what they are talking about.

    So does the Higg field give the neutrino mass, and can neutrino velocity change?

    How does this apply to a photon? They have no mass (presumably unsullied by the Higgs) but have momentum. Is this a "now you have it, now you don't, moment"?

    Did quark matter strike Earth?

    Yes, I wish the 'reporting stations' had been more detailed in their description of the 'event'. Just to say it happened leaves one a tad mystified. Did it take out someone's garbage shed? Activate some kind of monitor? Was it obvious without equipment?

    Why is there starvation in human populations?

    Note the title of this thread ..... it does not specify Africa. If I reference another geographic area I am trying to put it into a context, not change any subject. That you see a mention of global warming as a change or subject (did you see the 'but') says more about you than about the subject...

    You really should have paid more attention in your reading comprehension class.

    Why is there starvation in human populations?

    Here is an interesting concept I came upon just after finishing the last post - it is by Gwynne Dyer and about climate warming, but the food reference may be helpful in this discussion: http://www.embassymag.ca/dailyupdate/view/real_population_density_04-13-2011 [Broken]

    Why is there starvation in human populations?

    Control of a food supply is a power political tool - you can bestow sufficient unto your favourites and ration food to your opponents. rootX has a partial answer in the intervening post: The people of Biafra were the best educated in all of Africa - yet they starved through interdictions...

    Why is there starvation in human populations?

    ? Do you think it has never happened in Africa? I used Chile because it is the best documented .... but love did not put Mubarak into the leadership of Egypt, nor Ali in Tunisia - England, France and the US have been and indeed still are messing around in central Africa. R. Reagan even...

    Why is there starvation in human populations?

    Fair price? How about if they overthrow a democratically elected government and install some toady as 'glorious leader' as in Chile with ITT and (that monster) Pinoche. Yes, Anaconda and Kennecott Copper along with ITT should be held accountable.

    Why is there starvation in human populations?

    Yes, it is not for me to suggest this problem has a simplistic answer ... it is filled with nuisance and has more corners than snakes and ladders. Completely by chance I was listening to Democracy Now as I read the various posts here. The article is about the loss of income from 'off shore'...

    Why is there starvation in human populations?

    . I would think that the hundreds of billions that the west takes from the Continent might have something to do with it. Much of the wealth of Africa goes to a few ultra-rich families ... at the moment Mubarak of Egypt, Ali in Tunisia and Qaddafi in Lybia at the most prominent - but the...
