Ghana strikes oil $$$

I've always wondered about the similarity between the flag colors of Ghana and Ethiopia. They are identical, but in reverse. After its own share of political turmoil in the Sixties and Seventies, Ghana is now stable politically and economically, while
Ethiopia is the reverse. Ghana is home to different ethnic groups, all living in peace, while Ethiopia is the reverse. Ghana has been advancing its democracy, technology and free market system, while Ethiopia is...Well, you get the point. And now the Black Star nation strikes oil, big. You don't have to be a believer in The Secret to understand success comes from unity, hard work, and less talk.

Ghana's President John Kufuor says the discovery of the country's first major oil deposit could turn the West African country into an "African tiger".
