Africa is likely to become one of the biggest stories of 2016, and not because of some horrific new disease or harrowing new war. Instead, an unprecedented new dynamic is about to shape the continent. The U.S. and China, major powers with a minor footprint, are both poised for much deeper and more direct involvement in African affairs.

And rather than finding themselves on a crash course, they're facing a more complex — and, for America, unnerving — situation. Thanks to the much different challenges and priorities facing both powers, African intervention is shaping up as a feast for China and a famine for the U.S.

Look to Djibouti for big clues about why. News is quietly breaking that China has sealed a deal to build its first military base in that little country, a former French colony strategically located across from Yemen on the Red Sea, squeezed between Eritrea and Somalia. Confirming years of under-the-radar suspicions, AFRICOM commander Gen. David Rodriguez
told The Hill that the "logistics hub" and airfield will let China "extend their reach" into Africa over the course of an initial 10-year contract. Currently, The Hill observed, China can't do much more than stage some naval patrols out of Djibouti ports.

While at the same time, China's economy is dwindling, seriously. Plus North Korea is on the warpath, some strange stuff happening on the Globe, yes Ma'am.

Very interesting thread!


Yes, the Asians has had a growing presence in Africa in the last few decades. Building roads, factories, infrastructure. This has both been positive and negative for Africa. Positive because it has benefited infrastructure across the continent, negative because the Asians are, of course, only looking out for their best interests. Blacks have to sing the CHINESE national anthem in many of the factories they work in. Also, the trade deals are heavily in favor of the Chinese.
