...and the Muslim north are in any way stable. Just speaking the truth.
And that's only because they're too busy hating on everyone else.
There's two major ways to keep a nation stable: make it a decent place to live, or cultivate an "Us VS Them, if you're not with Us you're with Them and complaining about our leaders is the sort of thing Their agents do" attitude. Permalink

If European powers didn't force themselves upon Africa, this stuff wouldn't happen.
Except it was already happening before we got there. The best time for Africa was under colonialism, when everything was stable, if not great. Just look at the Portuguese colonies before the leftists got uppity. Angola and Mozambique were some of the most prosperous places on the continent, and then they got independence... Well, look at them now... Permalink

It bothered me that you were suggesting a 65% genocide of a continent and that you were referring to your future post as Planetary Emperor. I realize you weren't being serious about that but that's why I responded the way I did. This isn't another debate topic.
That's fine. I just want to mention: the 65% is referring to the various warlords, militant groups, corrupt governments, corrupt armies, rogue military units, tribal militias, mercenary units, etc. etc. etc. that perpetuate the cycle. You get rid of them, THEN you can start sending aid money. Otherwise it'll get hijacked to pay for ammo. Permalink
These governments limp on with a broken system(assuming they have one) this is the "Wild West" so to speak, indians killed and terrorized settlers and vice versa. Its been the same situation for over 3,000 years with the muslims and Christians they all are killing and terrorizing each other everybody is to blame, and until they can stop all the murder and corruption these nations will keep changing hands every five minutes.
