    There is a saying, you prepare for war during peace and prepare for winters during spring.

    That space program has saved lives of innumerable number of people directly in recent tsunami and cloud burst incidences.

    Now coming to millions dying due to malnutrition. US has problem of homelessness and even there people die due to costly medical facilities. Has US stopped her space program until every single US citizen is fed and insured? I doubt. China has reduced its population living in poverty, they didn't start from 'social service' but from robust manufacturing nor did they stop their space program.

    More a case that I'm not going to waste the time to respond to a total of 52 quote alerts. Don't want the legacy of shitty replies to 'hold me back'.:rofl:

    The arguments have become increasingly pathetic. Comparing allowing 10 million of your own, otherwise healthy people, to die from malnutrition and starvation each year to people not being able to afford expensive cancer treatments in the US. There is such thing as medical insurance. In the UK, it's nationally funded. You want to talk illness-related deaths.

    India failing: 1.2 million children died of preventable diseases in 2015

    And then to complain about Britain, when less Indians actually died from hunger/malnutrition under 18th and 19th century British rule than the 70 years since. Then to start beating about semantics because some people died from not getting enough of the right food, rather than an actual shortage of food. This is like saying that some Jews died from hunger and illnesses in the Nazi concentration camps and weren't gassed.

    Deliberate and genocide if Britain is ruling even if cursed with 18th and 19th century technology and war. Natural if an Indian is ruling at the time, regardless of peacetime, aid, space program, missile programs and largest ever food exports.

    25.6 million born per year. 1 million of which die each year. 38/1000. UK, 4/1000.

    This is what you call a trouncing?
