(Secure the border and enforce the law)
I remember a show on TV about ancient Carthage. They stated that the area around Carthage 2000 years ago got quite a bit more rain than it does now. It was a prime agricultural area and that is one reason, along with trade, that Carthage was so rich and powerful.

In the 80’s a space shuttle used an Imaging Radar Instrument that showed rivers that use to flow in the eastern Sahara. I have tried to find the images but have not been able to. I am fascinated with what the Sahara Desert use to be like and what possibly may lie beneath it such as underground water and/or minerals and oil.
