How Might Having A Valuable Resource Affect A Region?

Having a valuable resource such as oil can affect a region for better or worse. Oil caused countries to invade, and cause war. In 1990 Iraq invaded Kuwait for its oil reserves. People got nervous that Iraq would take over Kuwait, and Saudi Arabia’s oil reserves, and that it might lead to war. In addition, they thought one country would take over the oil, and get all of the oil . People in this region have more job opportunities, because of oil. In order to use oil, it has to be drilled, transported, and refined, which is distributed from all of the countries. A natural resource can shape a region in good and bad ways. It can cause countries to invade on another. But, it can also provide lots of job opportunities.
