Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
A general point that I did not manage to get in there is that it is not about the oil, the water or any other specific resource or produkt. By destroying smaller economies that manages to capture some rent, this rent can be captured by larger economies and by international companies and local oligarchs. Fortune passes everywhere, and every economy richer then the slums of Haiti has something to plunder.

Every economy taken down also strenghtens the concept of there being no alternative.
