i don't think that YOU are an important resource!!

Water is an important resource in southwest Asia because without it everyone there would die. the second most important would be oil, but that is less necessary than water, because you can live without it. without oil, southwest Asia would struggle, but they would be alive. without water, well...you can say goodbye to southwest asians completely.
