In one of your posts you say, and I quote; "civility begets civility". In the post I'm replying to here, you call a poster a smartass. Since when does being civil involve name calling etc.............double standard, hypocrisy, or sheer stupidity?

What the hell does being handsome have to do with being effective or great, sheesh!
For the record, who would want to colonise Africa anyway. It's a beautiful place, but godforsaken and destitute, disease ridden and corrupt as hell for the large part.

Angola Press Agency (Luanda)
5 February 2008

The struggle against the colonial domination resulted from the revolutionary youth's consciousness , says prime minister

The struggle against the colonial domination resulted from the awakening of the revolutionary youths' consciousness towards the liberation and dignification of the Angolan people.

This was said by Angolan prime minister, Fernando da Piedade Dias dos Santos, Monday in Andulo, central province of Bie.

The premier was addressing the main event of the celebrations of the February 4, the start of the national armed liberation struggle against the Portuguese colonialism.

"In celebrating this day, we remember our heroes who, with extreme braveness and determination, uprose against the colonial repression, fighting for a just cause that culminated with the attainment of Independence in 1975", said the official.

According to him, speaking of the February 4, is recalling the past that brings along examples of dedication and tenacity for everyone.

This action, he added, must serve as an example for the new generations that should never forget as it is part of Angola's history and tradition.

"In this ambit, we count on all of us, particularly on the youth for, with the same determination and spirit of sacrifice of the February 4's heroes, having a stronger engagement in the country's socio-economic affairs, participating actively in the reconstruction of the nation, making their contribute in a devoted way", he stated.

On February 4, 1961, Angolan nationalists, armed with rustic weapons, attacked the Luanda São Paulo and Casa de Reclusão prisons as well as the airport, in an act of courageous uprising against the Portuguese colonial rule.

This resulted from the affirmation of the nationalist and patriotic consciousness against the refusal, by the Portuguese colonial regime, of peaceful proposals for self-determination and independence of the country.

The event was attended by the ministers of Interior, Roberto Leal Monteiro, Defence, Kundi Paihama, Education, António Burity da Silva, Social welfare, João Baptista Kussumua, and the deputy ministers of Ex-combatants and War Veterans, Lourenço Contreiras Neto, Territory Administration, Mota Liz and Education, Pinda Simão.

Why is Africa Poor?

Africa has been involuntarily locked into an earnings logjam on the international market, which keeps her poor when she sells to the western nations, and poor when she buys from them.

Simultaneously, she's been diverted, by the promise of foreign exchange, from producing food and goods for her own use.

The despicable crooks from the west still has the Africans in virtual slavery!

The Despicable Western Nations Still Has The Poor Africans in "Chains"!

Land that ought to be used to produce food is now used mainly to produce cash crops for export to the west.
However, the production of cocoa, coffee or tea for export, does not always bring the foreign exchange bonanza that is hoped for.
Sadly, by the time this is realised, the trees are simply too big to be cut down and replaced with the crops that Africans eat.

Thus, during the terrible drought of 1984-85, when millions of people were starving in Ethiopia, that country was still able to produce 179,000 tons of coffee for export  to the western nations - just 61,000 tons less than in the previous year.

You see, some of the best land in the country had been put to use to grow coffee for the west.
What if, instead, that land been under teff (a local staple) wheat, maize or millet?
You will reap what you sow!
