How you americans need to wash your brains and stop making wars for "freedoom".

Tien Tran says:

if I have money

Robotix says:

This is not so subtle anti China propaganda. You aught to know that the preconditions for IMF and World Bank loans involve gutting social services, mass privatisation of national assets and tariff free trade that decimates local industries.

slave labor? i bet you the quality of life has been overall improved for African citizens. as far as i can tell, i didn't see any workers in chains.

As Chinese, I really dont want to click the play button to see the video when I first saw the title.How did you say that? Every country has its own lovely people and culture and we just want to develope together to make the world more fair. If my country is wealth, why dont we help others to avoid some super country who always want to control the world??Dont be so offensive to others.Thanks.

dkwroot says:

China, France, Italy, Japan and the USA are in Djibouti. Djibouti must be pretty big to fit so much in Djibouti.

verdun says:

"Africa no longer bows to the US" ?? Hmm I think that hundreds of years of European rule has had a greater impact on the continent, tbh!
