    NAIROBI (Reuters) - Kenya signed deals worth $5 billion with China on Monday to construct a railway line and an energy project, deepening ties with the Asian country keen to expand investment in Africa.
    The cash would be spent on energy projects, a standard gauge railway linking the port of Mombasa in east Africa's biggest economy to its border town of Malaba, meant to provide faster access from Kenya's port to markets in the region, the presidency's media service said in a statement on Monday.

    We better heed the warning, China is posturing to take over the world. They're.constantly gaining ground by offering assistance to countries in need like this. Seeing their monies put to good use. Not death and destruction.

    True, however, China is also now having some monetary issues; Google: China and Money.

    The rape of Africa's natural resources continues unabated

    Lumber, diamonds stripped from Sierra Leone with natives working hand-in-hand with illegal operations

    "Gbenie" a unique type of wood that is second only to ebony in richness, is now being ruthlessly pillaged from the country few remaining forests in Sierra Leone.

    LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - In particular, the western African nation of Sierra Leone has fallen prey time and again to others who wish to strip the land of its natural bounty. Nine years ago, when the nation was in the midst of a civil war, interlopers sought to pillage Sierra Leone's diamond mines.

    Now at peace, a possible new agent of war has emerged. "Gbenie" a unique type of wood that is second only to ebony in richness, is now being ruthlessly pillaged from the country few remaining forests.

    Timber has taken the place of diamonds throughout much of Africa. The country's forests are now at risk of being completely wiped out.

    Chinese companies working in Sierra Leone lead the pack in deforestation. Logging companies have been destroying the country's forests, plundering natural resources and causing environmental problems. Worst of all, it is mostly being done illegally with local Sierra Leoneans operating as the front men for the foreigners.

    I suggest you read two books.

    How Europe underdeveloped Africa by Walter Rodney and the Destruction of Black Civilization by Chancellor Williams. Two different perspectives analyzing the same phenomena.
