    if the Brits, Spanish, Portugeese, Dutch, and other slave-traders decided to just invade and kidnap thousands of black Africans for slavery, they would end up uniting all Africans against this.

    however, by instead buying slaves with money or weapons, they insured a constant supply of slaves.

    Nothing would ever unite all the Africans. Nothing ever has due to the tribe mentality. The slave traders could have easily just wiped out any that resisted and taken what they wanted. You know this too... don't pretend otherwise.

    ok, maybe not all of Africa, but certainly all of those in any specific region.

    You have to be joking me. This conversation isn't even serious any more. You are going to sit there and tell me that the British Army... the most powerful army in the world could not and would not have beaten a bunch of guys with spears?

    The British Army took South Africa from a united Zulu nation with a relativity small army.

    So yes this is true.

    PS the Zulu nation was among the best organized and largest native forces in Africa. The Zulu's won 1 battle due to a tactical mistake buy the British General. After that, it was pretty much over for the Zulu Nation. It would have been even easier in the rest of sub-Saharan Africa.

    How do you united the tribes, when it's the tribes who are selling each other into slavery?

    That makes two of you.

The other, of course, involves orcs.... John Rogers
