Of course they want the wealth and resources...but there is no physical barrier...no technological obstacles...only the Constitution...only the Constitution...only the Constitution.
It's already been breached several times...most notably with the War Powers Act that sidesteps Congress...which means the Constitution. The Consitution makes "trouble" for them...(as it's gonna for Jackie). They did it by creating a threat...the supposed attack by the Vietcong on a US battleship and now a real and actual attack...another ruse wouldn't do this time...you can only play that game once or twice...and having to buy elections with millions of dollars means politicians can't vote any way other than how their buyers dictate...which means no one is going to stand up to a president...when it serves their interests to let him have his way. Screw us.
It's the Constitution that is the enemy here...the enemy of Bush and Ashcroft and Rumsfeld, Nixon, Kissinger and a whole host of these men. Once that's tailored to fit...where's the big deal in cutting down trees and dumping wastes in the air and water or cooking the books on Wall Street?
