The Moral Issue......China

Just read this little piece on al Jazeera. I'm just quoting part to make a point:"
The United States believes that China has "no morals" in its dealings with Africa, according to an assessment in a leaked diplomatic cable.

The cable quotes Johnnie Carson, the US assistant secretary of state for African affairs, describing China as a "pernicious economic competitor" whose investments prop up unsavoury regimes.

"China is a very aggressive and pernicious economic competitor with no morals. China is not in Africa for altruistic reasons," Carson said in a February meeting with oil executives in Nigeria.

"China is in Africa for China primarily," he said, according to a confidential cable written by the US consul-general in Lagos earlier this year.

Chinese investment in Africa has exploded in recent years, reaching a total of $9.3 billion by the end of 2009. Chinese state media say that more than 1600 businesses are investing in Africa in a range of industries, from mining to manufacuring.

But Beijing has come in for major criticism over its suMFort for some governments on the continent. Many African leaders have praised Beijing for not lecturing them about human rights, something which Carson recognises as a problem.

"The United States will continue to push democracy and capitalism while Chinese authoritarian capitalism is politically challenging," Carson said."

OK so what do we do to improve things in Africa. We don't suMFort evil dictators, we don't exploit(Dick Cheney has been indicted by Nigeria for Halliburton shit) The fact of the matter is'while America sits around fussing over stupid issues based on divisiveness,or keeping the wealthy rich, China has gobbled up lots of African energy and mineral resources. China is also doing this in Central Asia. While we fight over domestic agendas, China moves toward a super power status. Obama can do nothing because he's blocked. So when the oil wars come in a few years, we will own all the played out and dry wells in the world and China will control the new reserves.

Ni Hau!
