What America spends on the Iraq war

Here is an interesting quote from the book our book club is reading: "Economic Hit man" by John Perkins.

"The United States spends over $87 billion conducting a war in Iraq while the United Nations estimates that for less than half that amount we could provide clean water, adequate diets, sanitation services, and basic education to every person on the planet."

If this is true, which policy do you think would help eliminate terrorism?
