President Biden, a 78-year old leader has vowed to defend democracy from the rise of dictatorship across Africa, then autocracy, especially from China.
As well the rise and take over of Afghanistan by the Taliban’s, It all seems democracy is fading off around the world, only but time will tell
President Joe Biden has asserted, it may look as if the democracy is in danger and is too important to let it die. The Biden administration, however, faces a real dilemma and much criticism with some people calling for his resignation over the way he handled the American long stay in Afghanistan, together with the death of 13 U.S services men in Afghan Airport

In a dangerous and delicate balance at a time of intense competition from the Chinese who do not seem to care about human rights in Africa, and other parts of the world
The Chinese Government sometimes assists other governments in abusing their people for economic gains, these are happening across Africa, with bad loans from the China government to several Africa nationals, it seems like China has indirectly taken over some part of Africa
The threat from China is real. more dangerous across Africa, with about 835 active seaports and inland ports worldwide, the Chinese government is now in control of their investments support two-thirds of the top 50, including most of the projects they are directly involved in Africa Nigeria
China now remains the world’s biggest lender, holding a staggering $5 billion in outstanding debt, overtaking the IMF and the World Bank when put together, most of the loans China is lending to Africa nations will be probable re looted by the government officials in Africa
A lot is going on in the world around us, that practices secret, unreported, and politically motivated lending.
That may be the real threat to democracy. As the danger signs continue to roam, this is because controlling roads and ports means controlling the world, having access, having leverage.
