United States Of Africa?what Do You Think

the proposed united states of africa, very interesting idea but i wonder why the libyan leader is in such a rush.probably he wants to power so much. even though i believe in African integration,i believe our leaders should tackle the major problems within their countries.

i also think for the continent to adopt this proposal , there should be a referendun in all African countries.what do you think?

This is a highly simplistic way of looking at it. Nigerians are essentially united even as we stand today. The problem is that the political/economic structure in place is such that it is easily manipulated by powerful elements for their own nefarious advantage. This they do by whipping up ethnic sentiments to suit their agenda. But when power moves to a centralized African government, those enabling structures will be automatically removed/altered, thus neutralizing those elements.

archive, you do realize that the population of Africa is 1.2 billion, while China's is over 2 billion!

So it makes no sense to say ''Africa is too big to be a United States''.

If China had been split into 55 ''independent'' countries, they would be nowhere near as rich and powerful as they are today. Each of the countries would have been colonized by western multinationals, and controlled by the IMF, as happens in Africa.

It's impossible for Ghadafi to lead the Union of the Nations of Africa. Libya has contributed cash prizes to some African leaders, but has not contributed to the generality of African development.

The Union would be headed by an OLIGARCHY of Vice-Presidents of Different African Countries which will be rotated every year.
