I don't think there is anything that we could fix in our country that could potentially save 500,000 lives immediately .

Yeah but we haven't invaded their country, arrested the leader and overthrown their government like we have done with Iraq. If we are really in Iraq to help them rebuild then we should help in any way we can.

Why did you list China by the way? How are they oppressed? They are like the fastest growing country in the world. :-D


In all of those places, the leader(s) SHOULD be deposed. As for China:

1. Fastest growing country in the world =/= not oppressed.
2. China does not allow democracy or free expression of ideas.
3. China continues of oppress the people of Tibet.
4. While China attempts to paint a rosy picture of full food stalls accross the country, inhabitants along the Yellow River still die in great numbers due to drought/flooding.
