USA and Angola

The USA backed Jonas Savimbi fails to win elections in Angola.

Savimbi had been destabilising Angola since 1974. The incumbent government refuses to allow USA companies concessions to the country's oil and diamonds. The USA continue to arm and finance Savimbi as he continues to destabilise Angola. Over 650,000 people have died in the conflict.
