Paying for auf, sending over rapey whore creepers.

Just compare Afruca v. South asia.

Asia hs fuck all resources or land.

Africas stuffed with it. You dontget the African population quadruping 50 if it was starving and barely feeding itself.

Too true, we pay for our own destruction in so many ways :Old:

The odd thing about sub Saharan Africa is that almost no European country was that interested in it until the very late 19th century. Until then Europeans had only settled in the Cape, established coastal trading bases etc. Even during the height of the African slave trade most European involvement did not stretch further than a few coastal forts and these were primarily intended to protect the occupiers from other European powers  as much as the locals who were still under their local rulers.

As a consequence the supposed massive influence of Europeans on Africa is largely constructed on a period of occupation that  sometimes was less than 70 years. For example Kenya was a British possession from 1895-1963 which is only 68 years. Moreover, the number of European settlers in most was tiny. It is an odd narrative given that the Romans ruled Britain for 400 years yet much of their influence vanished in less than a century. Even odder when you consider for a least a decade of the period covered the Europeans were involved in catastrophic World Wars

It was the fake looking bandages rather than a teddy bear.

If one of your scars were healed (especially having your arm macheted off, then I would imagine all your wounds are healed)

Mildly amusing. Governing party ends up in 3rd place and 2nd placed candidate claims the fact they are not challenging the results implies that they have cut a deal with the winner. The pretense of democracy in Africa is getting embarrassing.

Quote

The candidate from Mr Kabila's party had initially been expected to win, but ended up finishing third - and is not challenging the results.

Mr Fayulu's supporters say this backs their suspicion that Mr Tshisekedi has cut a power-sharing deal with Mr Kabila.

The Congo is two countries: The Republic of The Congo and The Democratic Republic of The Congo.

  • The Democratic Republic of The Congo is the big one, and the one with the recent elections.  The funny thing about the DRC is that it isn't actually democratic -- as illustrated by the recent elections, which weren't.
  • The Republic of Congo is the little one closer to the coast.  It would be a lovely anti-logic if it were actually democratic, but it isn't.  I suppose the nuance is that RC doesn't even pretend to be democratic by not having elections.
