"Africa for the Africans means an Africa where Africans enjoy the fruits of honest toil in peace and security. An Africa that will nurture them, not imprison them. An Africa that is a solid base from which to go out there and fulfil their manifest destiny. An Africa where Africans no longer live in fear and uncertainty.
That is Africa for Africans." - Masimba Musodza.
"Iraq for the Iraqis means an Iraq where Iraqis enjoy the fruits of honest toil in peace and security. An Iraq that will nurture them, not imprison them. An Iraq that is a solid base from which to go out there and fulfil their manifest destiny. An Iraq where Iraqis no longer live in fear and uncertainty.
That is Iraq for Iraqis. " - george w. bush.
He could have said the above when he was making his 'mission accomplished' speech. Or, he could have said it just before amerikkka went into Afghanistan.
Masimba Musodza, what you have used as a definition could be used by any invader who comes a 'liberator'. This is why it is good to know that there is a difference between the perspectives that one can use. (Concerning ALL matters). Good to know which is coming from the African mind and which is'nt.
