Counting the cost
Since the U.S. invasion of Iraq, between 11,793 and 13,802 civilians have been killed. Since then, three million children have also died of hunger worldwide. What are our real enemies in this world? "Love your enemies; bless those who persecute you; pray for those who despitefully use you."
Great quote of the day: "North American governments are now planning to spend more than twenty billion dollars a year to fight terrorism. Twenty billion dollars a year just happens to be the amount the World Health Organization has estimated it would take to end hunger in the world. It's the amount of money we would need to spend to create a world where no child goes to bed hungry. We've heard a lot of talk since September 11th about how the terrorists are callous and heartless cowards. And here we are, blithely preparing to spend a sum of money so huge that with it we could rid the world of the scourge of hunger, and we're not even weighing that possibility." — Bruce O'Hara, "Tired of September 11th - A Canadian View"
