Spent a while finding & crunching numbers this morning and came up with the following. Not new to those on FB or twitter, but, hey, might as well spread the word, right?
2,792: deaths in 9/11 attacks
about 25,000: children under age 5 who die of hunger-related causes per day (that's 73 million children since 9/11/01)
$311 million: military spending ONLY in Iraq and Afghanistan per day (average since 2001). This doesn't include the operating cost of the military elsewhere.
$25 million: federal money on all foreign assistance per day (2005 estimated average). This doesn't take into account as much as 50% of spending that basically gets mismanaged into oblivion before it even makes it out of the US.
