So why is china getting involved?

Are you admitting now that they are capitalists?

China is going through the capitalist phase of communism but China is progressing past that, not becoming
mired in capitalism which is what is bringing down the west.
Whether China is good or bad for Africa remains to be seen.
But we already know what the west has done there. The same as they've done just about
everywhere else in the world. Subjugate the people and stay if it's profitable or leave once all
the resources have been exhausted.
If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?

China, Nigeria sign 13.1 bln dollar rail deal

China Railway Construction Corporation announced it has signed a framework contract for a 13.1-billion-dollar railway project in Nigeria.

The company signed the deal with Nigeria’s Federal Ministry of Transportation for a coastal railway line with a single track length of 1,385 kilometers. The design speed for the railway is 120 kilometres an hour. The two sides are still discussing details based on the released framework.

=====================================================

Its in China's best interest to have a stable Nigeria.  They are helping because they are invested heavily.   I have predicted this and have been telling people this over and over.

The more china grows and soon they will be expected and drawn into conflicts.   They are not going to be able to keep a policy of 'non-interference' because other countries won't let them.   They will demand and expect it as a responsibility.

Its a double-edged sword.

capitalist phase of communism


lol

I hate to break your heart but every country is a mix of capitalism and socialism.  It only varies in degrees on which side the pendulum swings.  China is not an exception.   Nor is the US.

If that simplistic explanation makes you happy then don't let me rain on your parade.
Did you know that communism is illegal in the U.S.?

Not surprised by that.

Well unless you are like a religious commune maybe.

What was that show on national geographic?  Meet the Hutterites?

They had a form of communism there.  Was kind of cool.  You should research it.  It surprised me.  I'm no fan of religion, but I did admire their financial system.

Also many indian tribes are kind of communist....the tribe collectively owns all the resources on the reservation.  My friend is getting profit-sharing checks now from the casino profits.  They take care of their own.  Something else you might want to check out.

Communism works best in smaller communities IMO.  Its more pure and meaningful.

Communism works best at all levels. Capitalists do not want to lose their unfair advantage and are
perfectly willing to kill to keep it. They've proven it in Vietnam and would prove it again with an
all out war in Asia if not for China having nuclear weapons.

But you do realize there are no pure communist governments and no pure capitalistic governments right?
