Why Is The Media Quiet About United States Of Africa?

Gaddafi's reported proposals are a single African military force, a single currency and a single passport for Africans to move freely around the continent.

Is this going to make Africa a super power?

I think why they are quiet is that they'd rather not waste their pens on frivolous and unrealistic issues.

Maybe we should first try dividing Africa into 5 regions,Southern,Western,Northern,Eastern,Central Africa and see if it can work,and if does we have a better opportunity to unite all the regions,to make one big Africa States United.It wont happen.

What good will that do? What good will his so-called United states of Africa do? I mean this plan to me is as useless as the AU.

IF Gaddafi is serious and wants to really get the ball rolling. Sign a free trade agreement and labour agreement between all members of the AU. A massive step in the right direction.

Left to me, I see nothing wrong with sub Saharan Africans uniting not as one country but for military and economic purposes. The Gaddafi's proposal is for the good of Arabs not for Africans at all. He knows the presence of Arabs in North Africa is threatened in the near future. He's trying to hide his own atrocities. Gaddafi, if I remember correctly has been pushing for pan Arabism which has failed to actualize countless times and is still failing. Africans are blinded by religion anyway so I won't be surprised if the Muslims support this cause it's coming from an Arab.

Africans need to unite on their own. Not under Arabs. We've been slaying ourselves for far too long. If we don't unite, we'll keep getting  Molested by Europeans and Arabs and soon to join Asians.

It is not the advantage of the USA to have a united state of africa. They have problem with china and india already. Now imagine africa. 

it is a silly idea. it would be a failure. We need the type of EU idea in west africa. We need to make our currency one. And change aviation laws. That way. west africa airline can fly from place to place. Not US of africa.

We need to remove travelling barriers.

Nigeria have to be focus on west africa and not try to get involve with africa . The first thing is to move the yorubas and bendle area to benin republic. That way you reduce the complain of other west africa countries of domination by nigeria.

west africa citizen should not require permanent resident card to live in ecowas.

Make sure the ecowas passport thing is inplace.

Have a single currency.

Remove all travelling barrier in west africa.

Have a central bank of westafrica.

Upgrade the lagos  stock exchange  to Ecowas  stock exchange. Since more than 70% of the trading is already been done at the lagos stock exchange.

Introduce the ecowas company licence board.- which would register company within ecowas.  This would allow them to be able to have branch in all countries in ecowas. but requires a second licence in the country of operation based on country laws.

I have to go . have a wonderful day.

@Poster, the United States of Africa dream is not new; it has been reported over and over, and even today by the western media. If you Google the idea, you will find some reports of it, this week alone on BBC, CNN, etc.

Now, I Think the main question is what are we going to do about this ridiculousness? What stops the morons in office from signing the deal soon?

Even at this stage, what do you get in africa ?  wars and wars. And now you claim you want to bring all together. That not a smart move. In nigeria only we have over 250 ethnics and  the united state only speak english.

In nigeria we are trying to break it. you are talking about a silly idea.  Africans are not that silly. It is not a smart idea. Ecowas would serve that purposes. we have to keep that 53 vote. Kwame Nkrumah idea is out of date and not what africa needs at the moment. time have passby.

the idea of EU is better but on region section.

Africa can't be united in a shotgun wedding. By an Arab of all people.

Africa will unite in the long term, sub saran africa will. But not in the next 50 years. The integration must first be economic, as in the European Union. We can then think about political.

they are not speaking about it because it's a pan-africanist pipe dream. This idea has gone way back to Kwame Nkrumah.

meaningless tangent.

And look at the moment the USA would not want Gaddafi's  idea, since it is not to thier own advantage. The USA as a black man obama as president. It means at the United nation, most africa countries would been watching the way obama vote at the united nation to detemine where they would vote in support of Obama.

It technically means the USA have won in the power game at the UN. And most USA policy may go thru easy under obama. 1 + 53 votes.

Gaddafi's idea is not an accepted idea to africa. We do not believe africa shoul be one country. It is silly to even think about africa been one country. It mean we would have just one vote at the unitred nation. we are not that silly. We would not be able to make impact in the world with one vote.

We have 53 vote at the united nation of the 200 vote. why would we want to reduce it to 1 vote. . and we would not reduce that voting power. We are not a silly people as people have assumed.

I'm pretty sure that it's because they don't find it newsworthy, they'd rather show some celevrity going mad, or maybe they feel that the chances this can actually happen are slim to none.
