Let me dumb this down further. I am not talking about shipping out existing supplies. I am talking about increasing production on lands that are not currently under cultivation due to colonial neglect and market limitations from the west. Our problem is the west undersells us by providing subsidies to their farmers. Therefore, our markets are destroyed and held in check. To develop the DESERT areas we cannot compete against western farmers. So, we have no choice but to sell the SURPLUSES generated by farming in the deserts to Asia. And, Asia is the place to sell it because the real food shortage is not in Africa. The real food shortage is in Asia. For insatnce, much of Bangladesh is below sea level. Therefore, it is extemely susceptible to flooding. When foods overtake the country, they MUST import food. Our job is to produce the food in te desert areas of Africa. NOBODY has more available land for farming and food production than Africa. And, we thank GOD Almighty for Blessing us with Africa. But, here is were the danger lies: if we Africans do not become more active as god stewards of what GOD Has Given us, the starving peoples of Asia will insist on migraing to Africa and working the land themselves. WE MUST RECLAIM WHAT BOOKER T. WASHINGTON TAUGHT US. We prefer to have Africans work the land and benefit by selling what the Asians have a legitmate need and desire for. If we do not use it, we might just loose it. Make some money and stop being a slave to the white man forever. Up From Slavery[/QUOTE] Aren't the Chinese already in Angola? Japan is also a monocultural society with 1 language and 99% Japs. They have very little association with planet Earth, not even China or Korea. I simply believe that people gotta support themselves and create their own dollar that isn't inflated by accepting bad loans from the west. Relying on Euros or any1 else is staying reliant on them. Create or grow what other want and need, then other will come to you for the loans and resources. priority #1 is stii getting all Rhodesians fed first or else you'll be fighting food wars with the population while trying to export.
