i definitely agree with about 90% of what you say. only that i think you underestimate (slightly) many africans actual like of china. many have felt the u.s. is too bossy with its money (you know, that whole accountability thing) and prefer china on that level.

i lived in china for a time and currently work in south africa. it's been a struggle convincing many americans that deep investment is needed on the continent for america's future well being. but it's a case that absolutely must be made. unfortunately, given america's circumstances, i'm not entirely convinced that the obama administration understands that either. it's a bit of a political non-starter...

Belatedly, I agree completely.
