    Twice as many people die in the UK daily compared to Nigeria.

    How is that possible? Just because you can't see it does not mean it does not exist. The UK probably has more people dying in poverty than Nigeria.
    This is true so why are you arguing for sending money when it could be better spent saving people here than killing them there?

    They'd probably fix half their problems overnight by halving their defence, defense, budget.

    • The Russians are sending 25 fighter jets to Iraq
    • The US is sending 36 F16s in the autumn (to be fair they are allowing Lockheed to sell them)
    • Obama is finding $500m to send to Iraq


    To get back on topic, which of the 3 above do you think sensible given the track record of the country in question and its' current level of stability? What If ISIS do get what they want? ISIS then become the best armed militia in the region. Then off we go again spending billions and wasting lives to disarm the people we just rearmed.

    Option D: Intensive UAV campaign.
