If not China restrain, and stepping back, there should have been already several direct confrontation between Chinese and whites in Africa.
China had accepted to take defeat and loss home, swallowed pride from whites attacks to its interests in Africa, simply because China is not in any position to fight in Africa.
Whites are in strong position now, but, believe me that would not always be the case.
From Libya to Ethiopia, from Zimbabwe to Cote d’Ivoire, Chinese go head down, take steps back when hurt in their interests.
The Next big war in the world will be in Africa, but it’s not for soon. China is building up its networks patiently, steadily.
Like the terror warrior Genghis Khan put it ‘only a fool starts a war he is not sure to win’.
The purpose is not fighting. The purpose is winning. As far as possible without fighting.
That’s the Chinese wisdom. Applying patience to an unavoidable situation.
The two parts are building up their positions and forces. It’s only a matter of time for a confrontation, but like for the domination of the world economy, China would out think the whites and avoid a direct confrontation while wining the war.
Losing many battles in the beginning, or the false flight, is the hallmark of Asian waring strategy.
Where are Africans in all this?
