When you are working in a factory stuffing boxes full of matches you may well change your mind on the above opinion.

Why would I want to do that? As I said, I have no desire to live as the third world does and I'm quite happy that the US CIA and military do everything they can to keep that from happening. There is a limited amount of resources in this world. Not everyone can live a first world life style. Life isn't fair, the world has always been a harsh place and always will be.

You might not get much choice if things continue going they way they do. The game in play has been set up by the US. But the Chinese are smarted and now beating you at your own game. If the game play had been different in the first place and people not so greedy things may well have been different. Lets hope the Chinese are more compassionate that their American counterparts when they enter the centre stage.

Send in foreign financial aid, then sit back and watch government corruption starve its peoples, then send in weapons and watch them genocide each other...

And then send in the cavalry to finish them off.

Yup, sounds about right for the standard modus operandi of our first world's treatment of third world countries.

The US of A is not alone in this guilt.
We are a sick society of locusts.

what about all the destruction, all across the board, that Africans are inflicting on Africa? genocides, blood diamonds, constant civil wars and coups, warlords hoarding food supplies and starving tens of thousands of people, resource devastation, wildlife mining to the point of extinction.....the list goes on.

Stop with that rubbish. The US gives more money to Israel in aid than it does to the whole of Africa. The aid is does give to Africa is polically motivated. They give it right wing groups and political groups that help to destabilize the region. The US has had its way with Africa far to long and you have left the place a bloody mess.

Now China has been playing it clever. They are doing a lot over there. But they are building infrastructure like hospitals and roads....

Hey there

You are obviously here to prove how 'Israel is evil'.
You are free to do so.

But do not tell that what I posted i rubbish.
Afghanistan and Pakistan receive more from US than Israel.

Sure, the Chinese. The same Chinese that are struggling to keep there growth continued by building deserted cities all over. China doesn't have the resources the US does at home or the ability to sustain an empire abroad to get those resources. The US has both.

You're trying to apply a false dilemma ?
Seriously ?

Perhaps China is just getting ready for a time when their smog is so thick and their soil so contaminated that they need to move a few factories over to Africa to let the particulates settle in their own country. I mean sure the mini cities may be empty for now but you wait, they'll probably ship a large contingency of workers over there, move them into the buildings and then shut the gates to the impoverished outside. What else could their agenda be?

All that is trivial compared to injecting 20,000 tons of weapons into a country such as Libya. As it turns out that was just the first step in dominating that continent. France is doing the fighting now... whoops I mean NATO. We are there too. Just under reported.

Good thread OP. Not rant, not paranoia, truth. Thanks for bringing it.

Judging by the response you can see how infiltrated the internet is with Pro American sentiment. "Tough luck. It goes on everywhere, Would you rather be on the losing side? Everyone does it. The world is a harsh place."

Blah, Blah, Blah...

ah see you would be incorrect in your statement, sir. his post is about the destruction of Africa's resources, which is the exact point I made. Africans have been and will continue to destroy their own resources whether anybody is injecting anything into the continent or not, because they see money in the destruction of their own land. so no, it is not pointless at all.

I have a question. It might be generally off topic but I'm curious as to what websites(News related) that are trustworthy that I can go to that won't give biased articles on subjects going on around the world.

How is it a false dilemma? There are 7 billion people in the world. Do you think your first world life style is not dependent on taking from others? There is a limited amount of wealth in the world, even a slight bumb up of the standard of living in India and China has already effected you standard of living through the cost of oil and other resources. Or are you one of those international socialist that believe everyone should have an equal share and you are willing to give up your first world life style?

Anything other than the popular ones like NYTIMES,LATIMES,BBC,CNN,ABC etc etc.
Check out sites that are not that popular.
Also keep an eye on ATS Breaking Alternative News section.

After you get the Main Stream and after you read a thread about it here, trust your judgment.
ATS'ers are a broad base of opinions. Many bring news from sites that support the Main Stream, and others "another opinion". Getting to the truth is about digesting a bunch of that and comparing it to your "common sense". I know you have that going on, because you asked that question. You'll be fine.

Filter on.

his post is about the destruction of Africa's resources, which is the exact point I made. Africans have been and will continue to destroy their own resources whether anybody is injecting anything into the continent or not, because they see money in the destruction of their own land.

Big difference between mining with a pick and shovel and a modern mining operation with mega methods. The reason Africans are starving is because DeBeers is paying thugs (and thug governments) to enslave their own population to mine those blood diamonds (for instance). Not because they "do it to each other". Same with other resource raping by giant international corporations. The locals earn zero from all the rape of their land and pollution of their environment.

Trillions of dollars of ore, oil and diamonds have been extracted and the indigenous populations are as poor as ever. No wonder they have to hunt their animal populations to extinction and cut down the forests for firewood. They are starving.

Of course it makes them look backwards when they are filmed today. They have come to such a low place because of outside meddling in their affairs. You are seeing the result of all those decades of exploitation.

Now a new era of exploitation has begun. Newer methods of mineral extraction and the higher prices of those ores and oil make it worth while anew all over again. So now we will invade and conquer them again. This time outright military invasion and occupation.

Fighter jets and tanks against mud huts. The "terrorists" are anyone who shoots back. The conquerers write the news copy that cry "Intervention for Humanitarian reasons".

The people are responsible for voting your president, for doing nothing. You are the reason little children get killed by drones - you got blood on your hand.

Stop trying to blame it on your government, behind every government there are people who elected them to lead them to a better country.

It's your own fault.

I would seriously question what the U.S. got in return for it.


HATE
9/11
Embassy blasts
Armyman killed
Bilions of dollars lost


Quite a small investment for an evil global meglomanic cabal hellbent on world domination wouldn't you say?
