Geopolitics: Mississippi Drought
Earlier I posted about how the Mississippi was the fountain head of American power. We have fought several wars to ensure the security of the river; the War of 1812, Mexican, Civil, and Spanish American War were all fought to some degree to ensure America's access and security to this vital arterial system. It also happens to be a lifeline which connects America to over a hundred of other countries that import our agricultural products; well it also happens to having one of the worst droughts in 50 years. This will affect global trade and economies heavily.
