It is absolutely flabbergasting that after the supposed "end" of Western invasion colonization, African nations FIRST, AND FOREMOST goal was not amassing the largest military the world has ever seen, in order to guarantee that Africa would NEVER be invaded, raped and pillaged EVER again.
The Black race cannot afford to be gullible enough continue falling for the White man's "we are friends now" LIE, or the "We Come In Peace" deception.
It is really a shame that African leaders do not fully grasp, do not fully understand, or do not give a damn about the fact, that like it or not, believe it or not, want it to be true or not, the survival of the Black Race as people IS-IN-THEIR-HANDS.
It is sad that African leaders do not realize or do not acknowledge, that because of the manufactured predicament non-Black people have put the Black race in on this planet, the survival of the Black Race hangs in the balance of what they CHOOSE to do with the massive amount of Power and Responsibility bestowed on them.
At the very least African leaders most imminent agenda should be to amass a military great enough to protect Africa/African people from further exploitation, destruction, and financial EXTORTION, and most certainly, from further 'colonization' [physical or psychological] enslavement, environmental destruction, and natural resource robbery.
