ABSTRACT
A SIGNIFICANT AMOUNT OF LITERATURE CONCERNING FOREIGN POLICY FRAMEWORKS AND THE USE OF MILITARY FORCE, HAS RECENTLY EMERGED IN THE FIELD OF INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS, BUT THESE STUDIES HAVE NOT EXCLUSIVELY FOCUSED ON HUMANITARIAN INTERVENTIONS AND VERY SELDOM EXAMINES THE ROLE OF ENFRAMING IN SHAPING PUBLIC OPINION. THE CONFLICTS MOBILIZE A PLURALITY OF PRIVATE AND PUBLIC ACTORS, SOLDIERS AND CIVILIANS THAT CANNOT BE REDUCED TO THE GOVERNMENT-REBEL RELATIONSHIP OR THE BINOMIAL ECONOMIC INTEREST OF BUSINESSES - THE OFFICIAL OR COLLATERAL CHECKOUT METHOD OF RESOURCES BY THE GOVERNMENT, POLITICAL POWERS OR MILITARY FORCES. THE OIL AND MINING COMPANIES HAVE THEIR OWN STRATEGIC GAMES THAT SEEK TO MAINTAIN THEIR POSITION AGAINST COMPETITORS, OFFERING IN RETURN FOR THEIR BENEFITS, FINANCIAL SUPPORT TO LEADERS OR REBELS THAT ARE LIKELY TO TAKE OVER.
