LMAO! Or maybe it would be much worse. Within 50 years after WWII, Japan became an economical power. 50 years after colonial rule, Africa is still filled with shitholes.

Ah....are you familiar with what the US and USSR did to the African countries during the Cold War? Please read my earlier post regarding, in essence, the continuation of imperialism via that period after WWII.

And Japan.....

First of all, the whole point of the Meiji restoration was to prevent Japanese colonization, and they were successful. Japan was an industrialized, militarized, nationalistic empire in need of natural resources, no different than the rest of the industrialized countries at the start of World War II.

As for Japan after the war, they rose above the war in great part to the support and control of the USA. We basically, from 1945 and 1952, were an occupying force in Japan, led by General Douglas A. MacArthur, enacted widespread military, political, economic, and social reforms. And Japan had been an industrialized power before the war rival to most European countries and superior to the USSR.

What did the Europeans do when setting free their colonies Africa? In some cases cut and run, in others purposely weaken them (think the partitioning of India) and in some prop up pro-European regimes. Steal all the cookies in the cookie jar.

That is a poor example.
