China the menace?

People’s Daily Online: “Eritrean President Isaias Afwerki met visiting Chinese Foreign Minister Li Zhaoxing on Saturday and both voiced their readiness to further strengthen bilateral ties and China-Africa cooperation, according to sources from Asmara. ”

China, it seems to me, work with any administration, despite its records of repression, incompetence, and unjust cruelty, as long as it supports its policies and could be used to make a buck.

So China gets boat load of contracts to build roads, telecommunication networks, and a whole lot of other ventures that aren’t reported, and then turn around and do the same thing with Ethiopians arch enemy, the current Eritrean adminitration to do business, who knows, something that negates what they did and paid for in Ethiopia.

Ok, there were number of administartions, even US administrations that worked with unjust and repressive administrations. The thing that differs sparse US mistakes and the Chinese is that there isn’t much one can do to shame them. They are undemocratic.

I just don’t like governments that would give toys to dictators to lengthen their fetish grip on power. That just ain’t right. And just so shortsighted too.
