Chinese Weapons Flooding Africa

Deborah Brautigam from China in Africa provided more background information about the importation of Chinese Weapons in African countries and explained the incentive of arms sale is from private sector:

As we saw in the notorious Libya case, it appears that Chinese companies with their own balance sheets are “going global” and making arms export decisions and deals.

    but it’s okay for Peaceful Japan to announce that it is getting into arms sales? because Rwanda and Sierra Leone echoing the mass rape and torture murders in China by Japanese invaders using $2 knives from China – that’s just a coincidence. Just like Japan refusing to leave the Gulf of Aden despite there not being any Somali pirate activity any longer.

    mm hmm, sad day for Germany and Japan, Target Africa is armed.
