How to stop extremists

The Daily Terror has today calculated the increase in Australian overseas aid since 2008 and claimed the increase was all about getting a seat on the UN Security Council. It could of course simply be increased overseas aid. Meanwhile The Economist has reported on the case of Nigeria. This is yet another case where poverty and a dysfunctional state leads to extremists. So just maybe the Terror could have said the increased aid was part of trying to rid the world of extremism.
