I like Monster Envy's suggestion that Sloth could be digging a tunnel between Amsteris and Drachma. What if the homunculus have him in the North not to complete the lines of the transmutation circle, but to start the conflict in Drachma? So far, we know that Envy started the Ishval conflict and it seems Lust had a lot to do with Lior, so maybe Sloth is supposed to set off the conflict in the north.
I've been wondering about something. Sloth's been digging since at least volume 7, right? So he might not know about Ed and Al being Human Sacrifices. If that's the case, then if it came to a fight, he won't know that he's not supposed to kill Ed and Al. Then again, Sloth doesn't really seem like that fighting type. Killing them might be too tiresome for him.

By this point, I wouldn't be surprised if Sloth's objective was as simple as stir up war in the North. I mean, it's quite obvious they're causing war and strife on specific points, perhaps Sloth's just been working to that end.
Of course, now that I've suggested Hiromu Arakawa would have it explained so predictably tidy, neat, and simplistic, I'll need to be hanged for blasphemy.
Attention Manga Lust fans: Lust is dead. Finished. Kaput. Joined the Choir Invisible. Roy Mustang incinerated her repeatedly until her Philosopher's Stone dried up and dissolved into nothingness ("Mu" for you Japanese cultural enthusiasts). And she will remain killed off, written out of the plot. Greed was reincarnated because Father saved his Philosopher's Stone and had a guinea pig on hand. Lust is gone. Stop trying to play God with the plot line and bring her back at every possibly junction. In the event that Hiromu Arakawa can skillfully maneuver around this narrative plot hole, I will eat my words with a pinch of salt.
