1. Think about the refugees who need to be fed -- some of their food comes from our tax dollars. A few of the refugees also have been allowed to emigrate to the U.S.

Also, the Congo's abundant raw materials aren't being utilized to their greatest extent. Check this site -- especially the part about cell phones and environment.
