As Mike Lorrey would say, Ayup!

The trouble with this plan:

most of the goodies would be rounded up by the ideologists with the guns,
and added to their stores.

one percent of falling raisins would strike and mutilate stock and
children, raising a cry for vengeance.

a couple of the mylar blankets would by chance be infected with some croup
bug that all Americans are now immune to, but is almost unknown in the
fastnesses of Afghanistan, leading to a raging epidemic that slays two
million Afghani children, raising a cry for vengeance.
