I remember doing a report on Rhodesia in high school, back in the ‘60s.
Back then the place was known as, “The Breadbasket of Africa”.
Now Rhodesia’s name has been changed to “Zimbabwe” and it’s become just another starving third-world toilet.
I wonder what happened?
“Now Rhodesias name has been changed to Zimbabwe and its become just another starving third-world toilet. I wonder what happened?”
They lost their books and don’t have any more seeds.
Jimmy Carter happened.
Well, you’re right, except you give them too much credit———they don’t have a toilet to go into. It’s guaranteed tho, every time a country reverts to it’s older name for no real reason except maybe new-age nationalism of some sort then the economy reverts to the slit trench. Just go down the list: Burma, Ceylon, Ivory Coast -—just to recall a few quickly-—I’m getting tired already. Ain’t it curious and coincidental how Obamuzzie is doing him damdest to get us (US) also “reverted” to a mutually miserable slit trench of out own.??? Notably, while you were studying the Rhodies I was studying Aramco——the terlets are different but the direction is the same.
