Martin has a bit of a point about suicide terrorism and pre-invasion Iraq, along with a picture which will evoke a lot of memories in the over 45 crowd (as well as some of us younger folk who have read a little).
Economist Jeffrey Sachs estimates that malaria, which kills 2 million children annualy, could be contained for a mere US$3 Billion per year. Think about it. $100 Billion to kill 200,000 people in Iraq each year, or $3 Billion to save 2 million children in Africa each year. Hmmmm.
