I think you may be right. The press releases that numerous 'resources' have been discovered surprised very few people. The country will be drained
and little, if anything, will go back to the people. Just in the same way that Shell, BP, et al have done in Nigeria. I am no fan of China's
leadership but at least they are investing money into the people in the countries in which they have dealings, be that roads, medical or schooling and
thus winning around the hearts and minds of the people and not being seen as raping and pillaging the land.
