    That's great but Africa has shit for roads and ports, how are you going to get the products to markets in Asia, Europe, & North America before it spoils.

    Why wouldn't they? That's where all the hedges are.

    Other than a cow pusher that thing has no armor. It's garbage in the real world.

    yea they may be thinking 20 years in the future there will be a decent highway system in Africa

    Although we have to worry about Mexicans picking strawberries in California & whatever cheap labor they use in Spain spreading disease because they don't wash their hands after they wipe their ass, imagine how bad African grown produce will be.

    Jesus what a shithole. A third of their so-called trans-african highways are dirt roads.

    At least there's easy access to Ouagadougou

    This would probably be the best and cheapest way to get the economy back in good shape.

    I think we'd all be willing to chip in and pay the costs of sending them back

    It would be the best investment ever made

    Ripley: I say we take off and nuke the site from orbit. It's the only way to be sure.
    Hudson: Fuckin' A!

    Fuck Africa. Wipe it out, and start anew.

    Why are we giving money to Africa when we are in so much debt?

    Like 352 mill or something to the horn of that shitty continent the last I heard
