You missed the subtext: the land would come with
everything that's been placed on and in it.  There
isn't as much infrastructure in Africa as in North

A really rich person could try to conquer one of the
mid-African dictatorships, then build up the nation
through education and industrialization funded from
the new dictator's own pocket...but it's much easier
to develop the things we want to develop in an already
industrialized country.
