RE: Coup brewing in Zimbabwe.
^^People care about Zimbabwe because that could be America in a hundred years. It is the future and a case study of black rule.

Plus if you want to really stem the tide of unwanted immigrants it is in Europes interest to drain the African swamp.

Yes, I get your point but I think that is exactly how Europe (where I live) got into trouble in the first place. If we didn't care so much about that damn continent we'd be in a much better place. Call me a cold hearted bastard but I never really gave a rat's ass about any of the bloodshed, atrocities, and general disregard for human life that seem to be the daily routine all across Africa.

This is the Christian Missionaries Job. They go to those savage places to spread the word of God and get martyred. Of course they do this independently and with their own resources and reliant on donations.

Gradually after hundreds of years Africa becomes a much less savage place. Just like Europe became a much less savage place after 1500:

Precisely. I always laugh in exasperation when I hear people repeat the "we have to help them over there so that we don't have to help them over here" propaganda. Bitch please. When you go to sleep each night, how do you prevent homeless bums and assorted lowlifes from waltzing into your house? Do you embark on a quixotic thousand year campaign to eradicate poverty and cure all social ills so that there is no incentive for anyone to fuck with your property to begin with? Fuck no, you flip the lock on your door and if you're really worried then you also install a burglar alarm and chamber a round in your glock before turning off the light.

The same exact principle applies for nation states and mass migration. If you don't want third world welfare leeches/invaders from setting up permanent residence in your lands all you have to do is forcefully prevent them from crossing your borders. It's not that hard. It's certainly easier than lifting 7 billion (and multiplying) bums to first world status so that they have no reason to move in the first place. The idea you're gonna do the latter is just fucking nuts.

RE: Coup brewing in Zimbabwe.
I knocked a greenie on his metaphorical ass the other day. We was complaining that if we moved away from a heavily meat based diet we would be able to produce enough food to feed everyone in the world.

I didn't want to bother with the morality nonsense (unwinnable by definition due to it being opinion based). I just told him:

"30 years age there was a serious famine in Africa and the world went into action to make sure those people were fed to the greatest extent we were capable. Then the Africans doubled their population in a land incapable of sustaining the original number. They are now starving again. Back then there were 500 million of them. Now there is a billion. In 30 years there will be well over 2 billion.

What then?

He honestly shut up after that.

I didn't have the heart to tell him that we could also feed that number if we slashed all the rainforests down and converted them to farmland, which is what would inevitably happen if push came to shove.

RE: Coup brewing in Zimbabwe.
All I know is that when I was in kindergarten we had little cardboard boxes we put money in every morning to feed the starving kids in Africa. Those kids could eat for 25 cents a day they told is.

That was almost forty damn years ago, so either my teacher stole the money or something went haywire.

I've been enjoying this song for thirty two years, but looks like it failed as well.

In exchange they could demand to low-key rule the country with a firm pimp hand behind the scenes and make it China's bitch along with all the mineral rights of course.

Zimbabwe doesn't have any major mineral resources to speak of. Zimbabwe's great resource is its huge swathes of fantastically fertile land, which is Zimbabwe used to be a net exporter of food in the region and a massive producer of tobacco.

This is why the army can't just take over. If Zimbabwe had oil, or minerals, or something that could be quickly be packaged or exported, the army would have just taken over directly and start looting.

But Zimbabwe has no easy, exportable resource to speak of.

The only way for the economy to grow is get people in to engage in large scale farming, but because in the last 10 years property rights became irrelevant (the Mugabes had a bad habit of conviscating productive farms as soon as they caught their eye), no one has been willing to farm.

China could perhaps be given a ton of land for agricultural use, but there is nothing else of value in Zimbabwe.

[/quote] Serious question: Why would anyone give a fuck about Zimbabwe?
[quote]

Business opportunities. Should property rights become respected again in Zimbabwe, it is likely to turn into an economic rocket. The country could easily be rich again with an agricultural based economy, meaning a whole lot of consumers for our products. First movers could win a lot of gains, assuming the government holds onto a decent trajectory.

Alternatively, a Zimbabwean collapse into civil war would ruin markets in neighbouring countries, reducing opportunities for trade.

As for migrants, Zimbabweans prefer to flood into South Africa and Botswana rather than Western countries. South Africa has a huge problem with Zimbabwean 'refugees'. For me as a South African, a stable Zimbabwe would allow us to throw all these people back and build a border wall to keep them there.

Right now the whites are being killed by thugs and bandits. In a worst case scenario the new boss is zealously anti-white and simply moves in with military forces.

Starvation ensues, leading to all out civil war and the kind of atrocities that Africa is famous for.

There are Whites left in Zimbabwe land? Seems tapped out, it will just be the usual Blacks slaughtering each other.

About 50,000 and declining. Most are too old or too poor to move or they are South African passport holders.

Ironically, many of them came from the liberal Rhodesians who stayed on after 1979 to "make a go of it" when Whites had a section of the parliament reserved for them at the beginning of the Mugabe-era.

The average fecund African woman is now 18.

Meanwhile in Western Europe, the average woman is approaching 40.

When I was on the Zimbabwean farms, charities such as World Vision transported the "war veterans" onto the farms to take them from the Rhodesian rump that still ran them.

Poverty creation is a multi-billion dollar anti-industry for the NGOs. Now these very same NGOs are importing African poverty into Europe.

Rhodesia is the Anglophone canary in the mine shaft but the odourless gas has been filling western structures for half a century now.

You will be happy to know that HIV rates amoung the middle and upper classes of many African countries isn't that bad if you avoid pros and semi pros. Plus the risk for a man from regular sex is hugely overexagerated. Well under 1%.

RE: Coup brewing in Zimbabwe.
Mugabe will be given political asylum in some white Western country or a well off African nation. Or he will be given a bit of copper to the cranium.

My bet is the UK will give 1 billion or more in aid to satisfy any colonial guilt.

Botswana is rich because they have diamonds, a small population of about 2 million and they didnt kick out whites, right?

What about countries like Tunisia, Algeria, Morocco? Are they not well off?

Both Reuters and the Associated Press confirmed that Mugabe had resigned, citing an announcement made by Mudenda.

I find this suspicious. Mugabe always used to make his own announcements. Now all of a sudden a random letter from him is read out, instead of him making the announcement himself.

Perhaps it's a sense of shame at having fallen so far that made him not want to speak directly, but it's still rather odd.

People always said Mugabe was highly intelligent and an intellectual. If he was the smartest African what does it say about the rest of us? To me he was Idi Amin in a suit. Good riddance.

Entitled Hillary couldn't make a concession speech after defeat following a 2-3 year electortal campaign so Mugabe probably feels too humiliated to make a public announcement after 37 years in power.

Or maybe Grace has monkeybranched him already as those days of requisitioning Air Zimbabwe planes for shopping trips in Paris must seem like another life now.

Mugabe took what was the most prosperous nation on the continent of Africa and turned it into the rest of Africa, he should be hung in the town square.

Then he will be a good commie, i.e. a dead one.
