A united Africa, as is the case now with Europe and the European Union, is what Africa need now to, be a properous continent in the future. The current state of tribal in fighting, and cross border disputes, and disunity, is a recepie for disaster. Europena re-colonialists are waiting in the wings to recolonize, and carve up up the African continent once again, if Africans allow them selves to be put in states of economic weakness, and insolvency. African countries need to pool their vast resources, which many African countries , are still in possesion of vast qunatities, that are still untaped. Africans must also re-work many of the hundreds of mining contracts made with European, American, and Australian mining companies, so that they receive a more than equitable share of their national resources.Many current contracts, are weighted in favor of the mining companies, with the African country receiving less than %50 percents of the mining profits. These kinds of robber baron policies must cease. Africa must unite as soon as possible.
