LudditeAndroid: According to the United Nations Food & Agriculture Organization (FAO), approximately 35,600 children died from conditions of starvation on Sept. 11, 2001.

An interesting observation - especially when it follows the post just a few before:

In the world, the typical household looks like this: They are Asian. The parents are also 35 to 55. There are five children, all under 14. The family earns between $756 and $9,265 per year. Most would also be Christian, but Muslim families are growing faster.

Now, if these folks decide that they wish to overpopulate their country and resources, through having large families, which then create populations which their infrastructure cannot support, that Americans should 'bail' them out time after time? And after we bail them out for 10 years, they figure out that the next generation can also have 5 kids per family, thus exponentially creating even bigger starvation problems?

Yes, there will be emergencies caused by disasters/momentary failures of gov'ts, etc, that can be addressed. Otherwise, unless YOU and others support family size control (read that as birth control), the cycle will be never ending.

Unfortunately, the second quote is also in error. Since christians are the third largest religious sect in the world, with both Buddhists and Moslems way ahead of them in numbers, one has to wonder why the typical family in the world would be xtian? It wouldn't be - since xtians are a clear third. And that doesn't include those who don't fall into those categories, such as most in China(1 billion people, 1/4th of the world population) and Japan.
