Congo War: The most craved after minerals on earth

The Democratic Republic of Congo is the richest country on earth, but the most exploited. It sits upon $24 trillion dollars worth of minerals that is more than the $18 trillion worth of oil in Saudi Arabia. Because of its vast wealth every major corporation is in there exploiting its minerals that make space technology work, uranium for atomic bombs and coltan for our laptops, mobile/cell phones, Video game consoles, as well as the copper, gold and diamond industry to function that depends upon the vast wealth of the Congo. If the minerals in the Congo were to cease from being exploited and exported, the entire modern world would come to a stand still.
