Pretty grim start to the year as the death toll mounts daily after the tsunami.
I heard one British politician saying that the British public ought to donate enough money to match the British government's contribution. Well fine, we've exceeded it with our donations. But hold on just a second... where do governments get their money? Em... oh, yes, that's right... WE give them it.
Ah how easily the American and British governments make decisions about allocating OUR money for bombs - but not for aid.
