I'll offer another one. Instead of spending how many billions on fighting "islamists" in Afghanistan and Pakistan, wouldn't it be oh so much more constructive to invest that Western taxpayer's money in schools, hospitals and infrastructure? Any of our politicians proposing that?

Because weapons are so much more profitable. Plus, you fire a missile and have to buy a new one. So instability is profit.

Schools and Health centres only need renewing after you've bombed them. So, there's no campaign contributions to be gained from promoting education and welfare.
