Genetically modified organisms and world hunger

A question from Yahoo! Answers:

What are the reasons why GMOs are NOT the solution to hunger of poor countries?

Because hunger has nothing to do with agriculture; not anymore, anyway. The world as a whole has been awash in food since 1900 or so. The only reasons hunger still happens are war-related displacement of farmers (think Ethiopia) and excessive government interference in food trade (think India).
