    Hey guys,

    Just wrote a new article in my blog. The entry was written after I read this article from the guardian.co.uk (Link).

    I really wanted peoples thoughts on the issue, as I hear time and time again countries making promises to help out another fellow state, and the promise is never kept :rolleyes:

    Directly quoted from my blog, which includes a snip it from the guardian article. Bolded my main argument.

    The mineral assets there trump any international undertakings, it seems. Your mobile phone supplier is probably subsidising the conflict there:

    This shows that there needs to be money involved, or the safety of the major players in the UN.

    If not, then the world says let the country fall apart.
