Don't rock my boat

Ok so less than 2 months back on the continent and the major struggle of our time is already slapping me in the face; the 2nd Scramble for Africa is in full swing.

I have already mentioned the establishment of the "new" Afrika Korps, but that is just the tip of the ice-berg. Besides the yanks, the chinese are going mad in Africa too. Not just take-aways either, there is a major Chinese penetration going on right now.

So much so, that the Europeans, and the French in particular, are feeling particularly left out. Witness Sarkonazi swanning around in Senegal and his dubious wife sucking up to Gaddafi over the Bulgarian nurse/ Palestinian (who converted to Bulgarianism) Doctor thing. Who knows what happened there, but apparently 54 Libyan kids did die and there are some parents who still want some answers over that.

So what's the deal? Africa is no longer the "Dark" continent, it's the land of milk and honey and there is another mad scramble for Africa's resources just beginning. This time though, an X-factor lurks; people who know what is going on are none too happy about this and they are not keen on being raped and pillaged again. They are angry.

I am one of them.

Back now, ok?
