Yeah, like Rwanda and Bosnia--veritable oases of natural resources.


We didn't spend a decade with tens of thousands of troops on the ground in those places. Pretty much bombed and ran, unlike Iraq and Afghan.

Why exactly did you think the US military should be the world's arbiter and police force, rather then simply protecting the US? Remember, all this stuff costs a LOT of money that is coming out of your and my pockets.
