I'm not the one demanding posts showing a different view on the subject have to be censored.
But I'm the one to criticize on your latter behaviour, because YOUR demand wasn't quite normal. Apparently you can't take criticism very well. You simply "won't tolerate" it...

What does someone do who cannot argue on content ? He's playing on the person. Well, preme3000, you've shown your real face now. Thanks for sharing...
Yes, uneducated and ignorant criticism with an arrogant undertone is not welcome and won't be tolerated. From page 1 to 4 of this thread, I've posted pictures from all corners of the country actually (judging from your posts I doubt you've even deciphered that), from West to East to bridges in different provinces. Some of those Kinshasa pics are exclusive to SSC taken by people who have traveled there and that is were most roadworks has taken place.

Also, I am not "constantly posting pics" as my last posts on this thread prior to this discussion were in April-May and prior to that there was a gap of over 2 years so again when dealing with facts, you're wrong.

Stay on topic and answer the questions from post #78 and try to be more coherent in your replies.

Maybe you're confusing the fact that I mentioned pictures shown are from different parts of the country, not just Kinshasa as it's been implied. There's zero arrogance from me and I am fully aware of the current state of affairs of the country, as you can see from the below quotes. This will probably be my last contribution as this is turning out to be less than a fruitful discussion

We are building from scratch, there is no government money, the challenges are huge. Here is an example of the types of joint projects with the chinese is going. This bridge has actually now opened, I can't locate new pictures of it but this is the construction stage.

Northern Congo won't be seeing any paved roads anytime soon, the government don't think - the leadership very reckless and ignorant. The only way I can see roads being built there in the next decade is if oil is discovered and they need export routes. Sad reality.
