<<<During the 1990's, the Clinton administration tried to increase trade and 
investment in Africa, while promoting efforts to fight AIDS. But there was not 
a sense that the continent was strategically important. Oil is changing that 

Pursuing Al Quaeda, Overthrowing Saddam Hussein, (supposedly) building a 
tighter relationship with Mexico and developing an FTAA, possibly scheming to 
overthrow the Chinese government--is there any part of the 'developing' world 
that is not currently a 'strategic priority' for the US?
