Reducing terrorism without loss of life

What if instead of being the arrogant big bully of the world, the U.S. made unilateral preemptive strikes of caring around the world? We could create help centers for needy villages regardless of race, religion, or politics. If a small health clinic cost $2 million, a school $.5 million a fleet of community tractors $.5 million, and a water improvement team $1 million, the cost of one week in Iraq (latest estimate $1 billion) could create 250 centers around the world. One “Iraqi month” would spawn 1,000 centers and one year 12,000 centers.
