the issue is of course quite complex, but you cannot say that that
the western world (esp. america) hasn't had much to do with that.
the us has had quite a history this century with taking out people
who don't "play our game" and replacing them with people who they
think will. look at chile, nicaragua, etc. so it's not completely
because they have less stuff....people just get upset when other
countries come in and dick with their situation. pinochet wasn't
exactly a nice guy. however, to be fair a lot of countries that get
the other end are fucked up internally. death->optimistic
pacifism->work the system (poss. warlord)->cou->terrorism.
