    Although I'm reluctant to give Obiang Nguema (one of Africa's most oppressive dictators) credit for anything, this is progressive thought. African nations sharing resources with each other has always been the necessary step for the continent to have true independence. I not only hope that this happens, I hope more African nations follow suit.

    Interdependence of Afrikan nations would shake up the balance of power on this planet eventually topling that power being the immense wealth of Afrika.
    I hope this does happen creating a chain reaction.

    I am afraid of Mugabe tho. Even though he purports to be giving an olive branch to Equatorial Guinea, he to is the same man that ruined the once great economy of Zimbabwe. In some cases he stands a warrior against european influence in Zim and in other cases he seems like a euro lap dog.

    We will see how this develops.
