Yeah its not new. Those savages will never be able to tap those riches though. Besides its so much easier to grow and sell poppy.
Didn't we call the Native American 'Savages?' OH, right, the Europeans wanted to Steal the Indians' land too. :0)
If we did steal their land we'd be doing them a favor because we would unlesh the wealth and raise their standard of living.
doesn't sound like small government to me? Aren't you all about small government?
