The iraq war has cost more than $360 billion. i pay au$39 a month to sponsor a child. i read that 18,000 people die every day from starvation (lack of clean water and calories). so how much would it cost to end starvation if the cost of feeding, clothing and educating a person is au$39 a month? i keep getting an answer that’s too little! 18,000 daily starvation deaths times 30 = 540,000 die a month times $39 =$21 million a month times 12 = $1/4 billion to end starvation for a year?!?! so has the iraq war really cost about 1500 times more than ending global starvation for a year??? p.s. i got the cost of war data from http://costofwar.com/ p.p.s. it’s not that i’m against terroism, but can we all do something else noble too? people would like americans more if they ended world starvation. you had a goal of sending a man to the moon and it happened, so why not have a goal of ending starvation? it seems like a bargain!
A question as I asked the Question and an answer that makes sense. The question and answer were Courtesy of X media answers!

It is not quite as long as I had thought that I would take to post another page. I have been pondering and meditating and hell just drowning in thought. I wonder at times what it would be like to be a teacher. The stress and the gratitude as I made a difference in the lives of those I touched and educated. The hardest part for me would be giving grades as I would have to factor in effort as well as what was learned.
Here is the curve ball for most that will read this post. If I were a teacher of the world I would have to give Humanity an “A” for being human and living in our world as well as being for the most part kind and loving hearts. 99% of the population is working class and or poor. 1% ultra rich and elite.
I would have to give a “C” on how we take care of our planet and a “D” on how we as human beings take care of each other.
As that teacher I would then ask our world this. If 99% of us are responsible for making that 1% ultra rich and sitting in outrage as to why they are not contributing in a meaningful way financially to the rest of the world. We put them there by allowing them to hoard the money and wealth themselves. They Earned it by the hard work and efforts of 99% of us.
Why is this acceptable? Why don’t the 99% do as the ruling class and “flip it” “spin it” change it? The way to get an “A” is to put the same effort into humanity as we have as individuals by becoming better people. We all stand to gain a better world helping our neighbors and each other by bringing us all up together. The 1% are working together to take over the driving force of our world… Money! The New World Order, one Currency, that the world banks and markets control and by doing so they control the rest of us. The true driving force for the majority of the people is the love of their family’s and the desire to provide a good life for them.
War and greed are lessons we all pay for as working class and poor people. My country as well as many others spends trillions of dollars on the machines of war and actual war that we as Human beings all recognize as evil. The real injustice we allow by allowing money to rule us! I am not alone in this thought for there are many who feel as I yet there are no answers as to how to change that. The people that share this forum are some of the most intelligent and loving on our planet. Amongst those that are here blogging there is enough knowledge and wisdom to find those solutions.
It is my hope that asking the Question may inspire answers and the opportunity to advance all of us rather than the 1% that would fight wars and be greedy while children starve and family’s go without shelter.
I thank you for allowing me to share some thoughts and a Question “What stops us from flipping it and saying we don’t need that 1% taking advantage of us anymore?” I hope you will give it some thought and some feedback is appreciated. Please share a smile and your love be the change positive and make our world a better place. Thank you for allowing Naïve and perhaps gullible me to share some thought and a smile while being the change positive.
