Banking on the historical amnesia of their audience, Messrs Kerry and Obama are on a bullshitting blitz to convince the leaders of the Dark Continent of America's benevolent intentions.
American investment will apparently bring jobs, wealth, security, democracy, skyrocketing standards of living for all, a pristine environment, a chicken in every pot, and a partridge in a pear tree for every African.
So open wide for US investment!... there's nothing to be afraid of, this won't hurt a bit! Ignore the naysayers who will claim that "investors" always take out more wealth than they invest.
And whatever you do, DON'T look too closely at those other lands that have benefited from Uncle Sam's gifts of democracy and stability in recent years.
