Are the only things that define a developing country child mortality and children per woman?

Our greatest enemy is Islamic fundamentalism

Our greatest enemy is multinational corporations and other private entities looking to turn America into a third-world country.

They don't want to kill us though. They just don't care if we die.

Picimpalious: They don't want to kill us though. They just don't care if we die.

Or if we look at the Soviet Union, they fell apart because of economic reasons, not because they were militarily defeated.
