Should Libertarians Cheer a Chinese Takeover of Africa?


I would think the US would go to full out war to prevent this, since it would put them on the door step of the Middle East, and obviously Africa is rich in natural resources.

Interesting thing I hadn't thought about really, are the military operations the US has going on in Africa to supposedly fight terrorist there, actually operations to prevent the Chinese from gaining a foothold there by building a military presence of their (US military) own?

Do your objections to the Chinese doing this have anything to do with a possible US response RW?

RW response:

I am sure that US military activity in Africa is done in part to counter Chinese expansion in the area. And as Target Liberty readers know, I am no fan of US military activities.
