If you were ever in doubt that Africa (the continent) is the final frontier simply add the % of arable land located on the continent; beginning with Togo, Mauritius is African but not continental. If we ignore the divides/boundaries imposed by Europeans it becomes clear what I've been saying all along. Africa is not overpopulated even when we include the many millions of non-Africans (semites & whites) who have returned and now make the continent their home; it has the largest % of Earth's mineral resources, and it is the most geologically stable land mass on the planet.
What would you do if you were in possession of these facts and your inherent nature is to invade, conquer, impose and control? You'll not be wasting time examining the benefits subsistence farming.
