Europeans left the US and Australia, when they decided to be independent. The results are well known: americans became fucking retards, australians did better.
When you talk about "infrastructure", you aknowledge that only europeans actually built anything, and the native cultures only took advantage of that.
Here's a little history for you too: the African countries that so proudly demanded independence from Europe, spent most of the last 30 years destroying themselves, making their overlords incredibly rich, fueling tribal wars, and making a mess out of the little civilization the colonizers left them.
I know a bit about Angola, and I can tell you: almost everything that still stands there, was built by the Portuguese. The African way, is this: take everything you can, build nothing, and make whatever war you can, doesnt matter who suffers. Africans only want easy solutions, easy money, and to blame the "colonizers". Even if most of them left 30 years ago, and the few who remain, are killed and tortured without any remorse.
Remorse: an european concept.
