Bombs or Food, Think about it!

With the famine in the Horn of Africa raging, poverty crippling millions around the world and children dying simply because of a lack of water we MUST examine our commitment to war.

We spend more on weapons than water!

In the time we have waged wars in Afghanistan and Iraq millions of children around the world have died from a lack of clean drinking water, food and basic medical supplies. What we have spent on war could easily have eradicated the problem in our own corner of the world and with the money spent by our allies the issue could have been addressed world wide. What would have been the better thing to do, remove Saddam and flatten a country or feed the world? You decide! Because it is your vote that makes these things happen, do it responsibly.

  1. Great post Martin. I was jokiing with a mate the other day that if the US cut military spending by 80%, they could probably solve hunger, water, poverty issues by spending half of what they saved on real foreign aid and would be safer as they would have fewer enemies.

    Not sure how we achieve this but its an ideal worth having.
