African Oil: Why We're Fighting There, Too

We import more oil from Africa than from Saudi Arabia currently, and it's on the rise. Nigeria is the fifth largest supplier to the US.

Thus, the wars. Simplistic? You judge. Every war in history was fought, ultimately, over resources. I know we're exceptional and touched by God and righteous, but would it be churlish to point out that all sides in all wars say exactly the same thing? Some "exceptionalism."
