'War on terror' or competition for natural resources? A look at the US and French military presence in Africa.

Africa remains a key territory on the global chessboard of the 21st century. Rich in oil and natural resources, the continent holds a strategic position.

Sub-Saharan Africa is home to six of the world's 10 fastest growing economies. North Africa counts with vast oil and natural gas deposits, the Sahara holds the most strategic nuclear ore, and resources like coltan, gold, copper among many others are abundant in the continent.


Comments by the poster:

- Even though Al-Jazeera seems to go along the 9/11 official narrative, it is very informative to know more about Afrika (with ´k´) to better understand the events happening there.

- It is clear that energy (oil and uranium) is a key factor at geopolitical level. I wonder how Free Energy would affect all this...

- I wonder how fortunate we are here in Brazil where the (evangelical/right) cue was made without the use of physical violence :-(
