CDC = "£95m for pandemic prevention last year,"
"£120bn spent on wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. "
This is a higher than 1200 to 1 ratio.
Death from terrorist attacks, about 400/yr.
Death from AIDS about 3.1million/yr., and say 1.8 million/yr. for TB, a million/yr. for malaria = 5.9 million, let's add .1 for the rest, so 6 million/yr. Cause of death ratio: Pandemic Disease / terrorism = 15,000.
Total ratio of funding vs. cause of death = 17 million to 1. That is, the US Gov. spends 17 million USD/yr. to prevent each death from terrorism for each USD it spends to prevent a death from pandemic disease (worldwide).
Nothing like 'self-defense' to make the US citizen safer.
