I'm sorry Amuk, but a couple of Railguns built in Africa will not put the whole damned solar system into our grasp within 50 years. Lets see if we get cold fusion in 50 years, that'll make solar domination simple.
I'm assuming that you are referring to electromagnetic launching devices that set the ships onto rails, then move them really fast along the rails which gradually move upwards and then slope straight, shooting the object off into space.
Seems there are a lot of people with lots of money who want to see Africa unionized and strengthened. It makes sense, because the NWO would have a much easier time implementing itself if it knew it wouldn't have to babysit an entire third world continent.
Second Off, rail guns aren't things that the world is ready to just 'set up' and start making. They would be massively expensive to create. You would probably counter this by saying that that is where the 'third world > superpowers' bit comes in, but the thing is, they need starting cash, how do you get starting cash? Investors. How do you get investors? By marketing your product to rich people. Where are the rich people? Not in these countries, they remain dirt poor while the 'Free World' benefits.
Amuk, can't you make your replies in one post? You've added 5 different posts in what could have easily been said in one.
For starters, capturing CO2 laden asteroids (actualy I think you'd be looking for comets) would be extremely difficult. You'd not only have to track down enough of them but have to spend a HUGE amount of energy redirecting them to Mars. Even if this was easily done the CO2 they carry won't change Mars much. Right now the Martian Atmosphere is more than 95% CO2. And yet even on the warmest days in the warmest areas humans could only stand the temperature a few hours.
