Uhhh, WHAT? Where are you getting Your facts? Ticking Close to a hundred million Americans on food stamps now and you spew this spin? The only places still thriving in this country are doing so in SPiTe of these morons runnin the gov. Now.. Open your eyes
Food Stamps are now at record levels and increasing! Most of the jobs now being created are low paying and part time. They had to revise their expectations for holiday season sales, as the numbers are already less than predicted!

You just mentioned the two most populous countries in the region and you're talking about minority.

the USA has been and is pumping in 600 to 800 billion dollars a year into its economy and has been doing so since 2008

and has been routinely running a DEFICIT around 1 trillion dollars a year..

the best projections is by the Congressional Budget Office in from 2018 to 2023 their national DEBT will hit 23 to 25 trillion

when their DEFICIT will go down to 300 billion a year

if anything all that money that is being pumped in the US economy... it should be booming...
well the stock/financial markets are... at least.. and thats a whole other discussion...good and mostly bad...

there are no silver lining in the USA, right now

The black leaders were thankfully smarter than that!

Instead of turning their country into a bloodbath and a pariah in the world, it is seen as a leading in reconciliation and cooperation between ethnicities.

It is you who can't think outside the box, why would the Blacks want to kill the whites (they are actually), Whites were responsible for the Black population increasing from 10 million during Jan Smut's rule (before Apartheid) to 40 million in 1994 (after Apartheid), and obviously they didn't increase with 30 million in a matter of months, hence they must have increased during the extremely oppressive, extremely racist Apartheid rule where whites "ate Black babies for dinner", LOL.

They will go to war, at least a cold war, because there will be a conflict of interests, China will want Russia's resources, after it depletes Africa's resources. Putin may react (or make a proactive move) by introducing a 1-child policy in Russia. That will be a war in the making.

You obviously are completely clueless about South Africa, "leading in reconciliation and cooperation" yes and Saudi Arabia leading in Woman's human rights (that was actually a thing somewhere). South Africa is a bloodbath, take a look at how many murders happen per day, normal people both Black and White do not want to live there, Whites immigrate to Australia and New Zealand, Blacks immigrate to Europe and the USA, however the people who immigrate are normally not racist, leaving only racist whites remaining who move to white-only towns and join the paramilitary wing which guards them, and racist Blacks remain and join the ANC in killing Boers. Anyone who thinks SA is a prosperous, nation leading in reconciliation and cooperation between races is a moron brainwashed by Western propaganda.

Hummm

I have a completely different picture of South Africa.
All isn't perfect, I am sure, but which country doesn't have its problems?
Maybe tyour are selling your country short; you may have a reason for that, I don't know.
I do know about some white Akrikaaners who sold everything came to Britain and now, after 15 years, are going back there. There are even some Brits who have never lived there before who decide to go to South Africa to retire. I have a few acquaintances from South Africa, some even confessed they left out of fear, but regret it now.
The country is still a magnet for many.

The problem with South Africa is that it has all the problems which are common to every country since the end of the cold war but it has other severe problems of its own, which are only getting worse. To start off it has a huge wealth gap, the middle class is disappearing, poor is getting poorer, rich is getting richer, the poor have gotten to such a level they cannot take it anymore, they've had enough of the empty promises of the post-Apartheid government, they are done waiting and are willing to take up arms i.e. to start a civil war. Crime rate is high and getting higher, just a few months ago it was rare to have a shootout in middle class suburbs I would have even gone as far as to say that SA was safer than the UK or USA, but now they are a regular occurrence. Strikes go on continuously throughout the year, they print enough money to satisfy the first strikers, then the next strikers want the same increase, causing the cost of living to increase hence the original strikers are once again on strike asking for yet another increase as you can see the country is stuck in a vicious. The infrastructure is falling to pieces, the country cannot even generate enough electricity to heat itself (considering winter temperatures are mild during the winter, considering that winter temperatures are generally mild in SA that is a serious problem. To keep the system from overloading they have to switch between suburbs, i.e. not all suburbs can have electricity at the same time, a process know as load-shedding.

Yes many did return, and there were multiple new comers post-Apartheid, a lot from Eastern Europe including myself. In-fact the many returnees kept me from emigrating for so long, but I couldn't take it any longer, the crime, wealth gap, racial tension and emigrated to New Zealand. I gotta say South Africa is at the bottom of the barrel, not even Black or Indian South Africans want to remain there. It's mainly a magnet for other Africans, most of which are either ex-mercenaries, ex-soldiers, or civilians coming from a cvil-war-torn country who have lost most of their family members, these kinds of people are dangerous, if they resort to crime they wouldn't hesitate before they kill someone.

A lot of countries have beautiful areas with a flourishing tourism industry, but that does not mean they are prosperous countries.

In any case, if push comes to shove, I would chose to move to South Africa rather than to Israel.

At least the South Africans have tackled apartheid ...

lol are you serious... only a South African white would wonder why blacks would want to kill whites...

... just because their population increased...

dosent mean you did not take their land and turn them into second class citizens in their own country...

there are many poor countries in the world where their population is out of control...

Russia is willingly selling China its resources... China unlike what you white colonist.. did by taking their land and resources..

China is paying for the resources it takes unlike you white South Africans... who just took your land...

maybe thats why you cant fathom... China and Russia not going to war...
