Two Further Thoughts About The 'FU Budget'

i/ It's an interesting philosophical question which is the more annoying: the money wasted on foreign aid or on the money wasted on climate change.

On the one hand, people really have died of malaria, on the other, no matter how much money we give Al Gore he's unlikely to spend any of it on nukes or terrorism.

ii/If foreign aid is meant to support people making a real difference in the Third World, shouldn't it go to the Army? Don't they do more to improve life in Afghanistan in a single month than any number of Toyota driving charistocrats manage in the rest of the world?
