It is the lives and well being of the African natives that are at stakes. It is no longer about your stupid pride, white man!! Your kind have butchered blacks on the continent, and ruined their lives for several centuries straight. You take out resources on colonial terms, and keep the natives poor, weak, and diseased. You make empty promises of aid and never deliver. Your politicos and princes and princesses come to the continent, do photo shoots with reporters in tow in AIDS hospitals (they don't even go to malaria hospitals anymore, since that is easier to catch than AIDS), take a few photo, and then retire back to air conditioned hotels for R&R, before hopping on to planes the next day to go back from whence they come, and even have the gall to charge their trips (the entire entourage's worth) as "charitable contribution" and "humanitarian aid." Then they heap on "military aid" to make sure that the locals have enough fire power to kill themselves and make themselves weak. They bring in their enforcers in the form of IMF, World Bank, and the Paris Club and theri predecessors to do loansharking, which over hundreds of years mean that the entire continent could be turned over to the West AND still the natives would have to work for another 300 years as slaves and still have no hope of paying off what they owe to the West.|
So there is no hope for the African natives, and that is exactly how you guys want it - a weak, poor, and dependent Africa, which is easier to rob.
China's entry presented an alternative to the natives. China brought infrastructure at half the cost in half the time. China build roads and bridges and hospitals and schools, and China taught the natives how to be their own masters, work their own mines and sell their own exports, without having to go through the West. So the West is truly concerned, as the last thing they want to see if an independent, strong Africa.
So what do they do? They want China out.
But the lives fo the Africans, for generations to come, are much more important than profits to your countrymen, Fish. Give them a chance. Stand aside and let the Chinese do the good work, and bring more hope and more wealth and more health and more peace to Africa. Give donations if you want to, but at least get the feck out of the way. Your methods did not work - they have not worked for 300 years. Why would they work now? It is time to try the Chinese way.
