Bill Gates raises a good point:

Obviously, since eliminating malaria doesn’t have the kind of humanitarian possibilities we associate with things like invading Iraq, you won’t see the kind of journalistic and intellectual mobilization behind this idea as we did around the “liberal hawk” movement. The difference, I suppose, is that fighting malaria neither has potential to make a writer feel tough nor does it seem very promising as a way to bash liberals and/or the UN. It’s too bad, though, because we really could save a lot of peoples’ lives.
