Zim as a new Chinese colony


Publius pundit has a large entry discussing the Chinese connection...

What’s worse is that this is a trend across the entire continent; as the West is finally beginning to confront rampant tyranny, China is all the more willing to help out friends in need. Business is good with these countries; in fact, China’s share of Africa’s market is rising about 1% a year. So why aren’t people feeling the poverty-relieving effects of trade with China? Because it isn’t about the people. It’s about plundering resources and, in exchange, fueling the stability of long standing dictatorships. The people never see the benefits that they should be harvesting. Instead, their countries are slowly becoming colonies, with China ready and willing to use its unearned status at the United Nations to defend despotism.
