    Namibia could easily become a fertile crop land to grow food for Africa...

    Vast aquifer found in Namibia could last for centuries
    20 July 2012 - Pressure from the aquifer means the water is cheap to extract

    If they can figure out how to get to it. LOL.

    Seriously, they have a hard time developing large scale farming...Good luck to them developing an entire system to water such.

    You mean to grow food for Namibia. Each Affrican nation is equipped with resources to thrive in any aspect of life.

    In spite of having plentyy of water to drink and for agricultural purposes, those backwards fucks will continue to starve and dehydrate en masse.

    Yep,

    It isn't so much hate, but fear that they simply will turn our entire civilization into this. :eusa_silenced:

    IF the Chinese that are all over Africa now don't use it all, they might be able to put this water in good use.

    Spot the person who has never been to Namibia!

    It's a desert, genius. How many countries develop large scale farming in the middle of deserts?

    I'm pretty sure you used 'genius' ironically there.
    Am I right?

    idb -

    Ironic it was.

    Having spent a bit of time in Namibia I can't imagine how anyone can farm there economically. Quite a few people do, but it must be incredibly hard work, with relatively low yields.
