If anybody is up with the news of late, it seems that a new frontier is opening up on the worlds (or America's) quest for oil. West Africa and its vast oil reserves is slowly but surely being milked away by multinational co-ops as the Middle East runs dry in terms of oil, with governments being left in turmoil. I think it was on Sunday that I read that the multinational co-ops; names that have slipped my mind now but sounded very much like those operating in post-war Iraq, as well as other non-American oil companies; are milking the oil of West Africa while doing nothing for social or economic upliftment. I am plainly against this. It seems that yet again, the first world is doing all it can to make itself richer while just ravaging African development - something that is barely past its teething stages. I'm envisaging a situation which will end with chaos in West Africa if restrictions aren't imposed NOW! The resources available (ie. Oil) has only been recently tapped so the first world development is still not as advanced as in the Middle East. Maybe, just maybe, something good will happen??
