    Angola is Southwest Africa. Where they are at is East Africa next to Somalia, Ethiopia, and Eritrea. There is no oil in Djibouti, it is solely dependent on shipping.

    Oil isn't why we're there though as we know Africa boasts some of the richest natural resources in the world. We want Africa for many reasons, resources is definitely one of them. Also it sets the stage for perpetual war/"conflict" which as we also know, is a racket for profiteering.

    Whoever controls Africa controls a lot.
