Venezuela's president has urged leaders from Africa and South America to help form a "multipolar" world to counter Western economic dominance.


This is enivitable, the world monopoly can't exist any more. Either they are willing to change or they are afraid of the many loose cannons around the world.

Which ever it maybe the unbalance of power will abruptly end, not for the good but for justice.


"The 21st century won't be a bipolar world, it won't be unipolar. It will be multipolar. Africa will be an important geographic, economic and social pole. And South America will be too."



Muammar Gaddafi, the Libyan leader, called for the creation of a "Nato of the South" by 2011.

"The world isn't the five countries on the UN Security Council," he said.

What he said



"The world's powers want to continue to hold on to their power. When they had the chance to help us, they treated us like animals, destroyed our land. Now we have to fight to build our own power."


It's true, remember when the Iraqis asked for help? America was helping Saddam and supporting his terror, even when he wanted to spread his terror to Iran.

Africa fears neo-colonialism with China’s foray

ADDIS ABABA: China’a growing influence in Africa in recent years, initially welcomed with enthusiasm, has started to cause concern, with some experts speaking of the risk of neo-colonialism Chinese style.

Africa must not jump blindly from one type of neo-colonialism into Chinese-style neo-colonialism,” cautioned Rene N’Guetta Kouassi, the head of the African Union’s economic affairs department.

This attitude contrasts sharply with the enthusiasm that prevailed before the 2000 China-Africa summit in Beijing when many African leaders saw Chinese aid, which unlike aid from most other countries, was not conditional on democratic reforms as a way of diversifying their sources of financing.

Today it’s China but tomorrow it will be India or Brazil, who also have their sights set on Africa,”

I seriously doubt that Africa will ever amount to a hill of beans. Rhodesia was the "pearl of Africa" while it was British. Now that the natives have their independence, it's turned to pure crap.

Same thing with South Africa. Kenya, Nigeria, Sudan, Uganda, Zambia, Rwanda.

One other thing that Chavez and a lot of other idiots have never figured out.

Take a globe, and look at the northern hemisphere, and spin it around while looking at roughly thirty degrees up.

THOSE are the nations that have accomplished EVERYTHING. The ONLY nations to have accomplished things.

The only exception being Australia and New Zealand, nations of immigrants FROM above these northern regions.

Chavez and Khadafi can sit on rebar and rotate.

There would be a discussion if you knew what independence meant but since you don't we will never know where this discussion could have lead us

You apparently got your terms mixed up.

Or your concepts.

Independence? World monopoly?

What in the wide, wide, world of sports are you talking about?

If parasites would leave them alone and stop putting corrupt puppets in power in exchange for their natural resources there wouldn't be so much chaos on that continent. There wouldn't be collapsed economies and desperation so many African countries face today if only greedy manipulative westerners would stop meddling.

The fact is Britain may have left but other "more advanced" countries stepped in to do their share of robbing.

Here is an interesting article I thought was relevant to the topic.



The Influence of Colonial Rule on Present Day Africa

After the invasion of European countries into the African continent during the African Partition, life as the natives knew it was over. Not only did they have to deal with the changes that the Europeans enforced on them, but they then had to deal with the aftermath after the European countries pulled out when the Atlantic Charter was signed and World War II was over.

As the countries began to rebuild, many of the larger cities grew too fast. The expanding populations put great pressure on the economy of the cities and resulted in problems such as high crime rates, excess traffic, and overcrowding. Ghettos popped up all over the outskirts of the cities, leaving many people in poverty.

As the Africans struggled with the colonialism that Europe left behind, they were forced to try and fit the only form of true government they had ever known into a society that it did not fit. The only way that these Africans had ever seen this type of government work was with corrupted colonists, this resulted in the African government also being corrupt. Many of the officials would exploit others and situations to further their political careers. One of the most corrupt leaders was General Bokasa of the Central African Republic. His taking over the republic resulted in riots and killings. Under his rule, there also existed a large gap between the rich and the poor which was indicative of the social classes found in Europe.
