I heard a report today that the coallition provisional government in Iraq is planning to dimantle the Iraqi food distribution program set up by the U.N. after the first gulf war. Apparently it was reported in the guardian, but I can't find the article right now. That system has been called the most efficient food distribution system in the world. The repeal is being called a huge mistake by experts who predict that the result would be widespread hunger and rioting by January 2004. Apparently J. Paul Bremer is saying the reason for getting rid of the program is that it is socialist. I'll try to find the article and put it up as soon as i get a chance.
