A couple things about your last post...
quote:No excuses, just pure "logic" when it comes to Namibia and setting up camp in a country the size of Cali with not 1 but 2 infamous deserts.
I will conceed that Namibia is mostly desert (so is most of California) but Namibia (823,620 sq km) is over two times (2X) the size of California(411,015 sq km). So the statement that Namibia is the same size as California is just wrong.
quote:I could say the same that your argument is feeble by pointing to Somalia. Another African country on the ocean that has nothing to offer economically but its trade ports and what economic shape are they in now? Because the only person that would want to use their seaport is Ethiopia and how much money do they have? What good is a seaport if the countries next to you already have what they want or have nothing at all?
I never said that having a port makes you economically proficient, but is helps out tremendously. Think of California w/ out the ports of San Diego, Los Angeles, or San Francisco. Most of the other stuff mentioned in this paragraph is nonsense.
quote:South Africa is a dominating country on the continent and have no need for a Namibian seaport. Angola would have a seaport as well and not need a Namibian one.
This tells me you are either stupid or we are talking about two different things ( and I pray it is the latter). S. Africa is "surrounded" by oceans, the Atlantic on its western border and the Indian on its eastern. Angola is Namibia's northern neighbor, and both Nambia and Angola border the Atlantic Ocean on thier western borders.
