    Britain was forced to decolonise - Britain needed the manpower of these colonies during the world wars and in return they gave them their independence.

    You think Britain de colonised out of their own good nature? :ROFLMAO:

    USA says hi.

    The colonies.

    It was a long time after the war that Ian Smith "illegally" declared independence for Rhodesia.

    Read what I wrote again. Britain was in need of resources and they decided it was better than to try maintain the colonies to allow them independence in return for their efforts during the war.

    Not clever. The US could offer better terms or even the IMF. They were too drunk on ideological policies which let China in. If a poor country needs infrastructure and they cannot pay for it or raise finance through bonds - then it doesnt leave them much option. Its a failure of policy on the international level that left a huge vacuum which China filled.

    So can you tell me how many billions in food aid the US provides per year?

    Take a wild guess as guessing is what you do.

    Maybe these countries believed that China would give them a better deal.
    A lot of African countries are being crippled by exorbitant interest rates levied on them by EU bankers.
    Zero interest rates in Europe means European money can be loaned to these African countries at high interest rates.

    Corrupt governments often do things that are not in their countries' interests, if the rulers think they will gain by it.

    Look left.
