Asia Pivot In Africa?
Gunboat Democracy To Sweep Across Africa
Ask yourself this...Why does the US provide support to the Islamic rebals fighting against the secular government of Syria, while the US fights against the same rebals in Mali, who are opposing the illigal military coup against Mali's elected democratic government? Double standard? Or is something other than a desire to plant democracy at work here?
Resource Wars in Africa
The Sahel is like a 'wall' between the Northern Part of Africa, and the Sahara, and the sothern green zones.
Tauregs, a nomadic people, have been fighting for resources critical to their survival for years.
But, while the native people contest for water resources, France, the US and China compete for mineral resources, like Gold, Uranium and minerals.
There is nothing new about exploiting the resources of Africa
