  1. For as long as, the US and Europe allows Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Kuwait, United Arab Emirates Egypt and all of the petrol dollars Arabs to export, terrorism and smuggle weapons, in to east Africa, as well as the entire African continent, it’s in inevitable that, east African and the continent of African nations might not experience peace, in a very long time to come.
    That is, until Africa figures out, how to defend itself from the jeluesy and terrorism of Arabs and learn how to leave peacefully amongst each other, before it’s too late. Otherwise the identity as well as the indignation of Africa will be either at the edge of the cliff or in danger of of being in vicious circles of failing states status, which is no industrialization, no growth, riddled with unsolvable problems and always an upheaval struggle, the ramifications are beyond our imagination and therefore Africa needs to wake up and make itself count.
