What is your take on China building a new America in Africa?
China has literally moved into Africa, fostering great technology and vast development. their aim is to make Africa the next powerhouse. What is your take on that. Do you believe America will be great after Trump wins?

China has less than altruistic intentions, nevertheless it will pay dividends down the road in terms of not only diplomatic relations but mineral wealth as well.

But had I been able to make decisions like that, I certainly would have increased our influence, particularly in West Africa. Could have been a real agent for change. Now we just offer military aid. That's fine. But we need cultural and structural changes as well.

Should the U.S. be worried that China is massively building up their military right now?China is building up their military at a greater rate than Hitler did prior to WW2. China's military is as technologically advanced as ours.

Will Germany be the next football (soccer) powerhouse after Spain?Might be a bit late to ask this but the answers could be interesting. I personally believe that they will beat Argentina in the World Cup final and go onto to be the best national team for the next five years.
