    It could be a far-sighted plan to reserve Africa and the polar regions for wild life--in case one day Mankind suffers from food shortage. Just my thought when i watched some documentaries of the teeming populations of animals on the National Geographical channel.

    However some countries, esp China, recently, have put in much investments to develop some areas on the African continent. I believe the top ten wealthiest nations in the world should do more to reduce the rates of disease and poverty there, instead of wasting resources in playing power games, cold wars and exerting supremacy.Time is running out and the race to prevent wars and genocides should be sped up.

    One word: egotism.

    Think about it. Fact is are we got to be the best by saying that were the best and stealing other people's stuff. A lot like the vikings only not in those really long boats.
