Africa: The last frontier for light sweet crude

Lee, always on top on the most stimulating topics, interviewed journalist and historian John Ghazvinian about his book Untapped: The scramble for Africa's oil. They talked extensively on China aggressive investing on Africa's oil.

Interesting read. However, I am not sure I agreed with the author's view on China. He thinks Chinese won't mess up with African politics, but only are to do business. I don't think this is totally true. I think their main interest if economic, but eventually they will end doing whatever they want in there, if they are let to.

Why wouldn't they? Who is gonna stop them?
