And a third LRA favorite, South Sudan:

hydro-power, fertile agricultural land, gold, diamonds, petroleum, hardwoods, limestone, iron ore, copper, chromium ore, zinc, tungsten, mica, silver

Now flash back to Iraq (massive amounts of oil) and Libya (slightly lesser but still massive amounts of oil), and Afghanistan (as reported a while back in The Times):

"The United States has discovered nearly $1 trillion in untapped mineral deposits in Afghanistan, far beyond any previously known reserves and enough to fundamentally alter the Afghan economy and perhaps the Afghan war itself, according to senior American government officials."

Get the picture? Whenever you're told that your government wants to use your money to secure humanitarian ends abroad, just check the old resource count. And then check out those places (like Syria) with mineral-poor soil, and ask yourself, "How's that humanitarianism working out over there?"
