MILITARY REGIONS AND GOVERNMENTAL BORDERS
(A QUICK GUIDE TO THE COUNTRIES IN AFRICA AND THEIR CONFLICTS)


Under European control:
Morocco, Mauritania, Western Sahara, Algeria (very very loosely), Somalia, Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Malawi, South Africa (Maputo , Lesotho, Swaziland, were swallowed by south Africa) , Comoros, Seychelles, Madagascar, and Mozambique .

Benin, Nigeria, Sudan, Centrafique, Cameroon, Gabon, Congo, Equatorial Guinea, Sao Tome and Principe, Cape Verde,
 
 

Independent governments:
(Some less neutral than others): Egypt, Chad, Togo, Ghana, Sierra Leone, Liberia, Angola, Namibia, Guinea, Guinea Basson, Botswana, Burkina Faso, Burundi, Cote d'Ivoire, Gambia,  (Libya is uninhabitable).
Self contained, but hostile to Europe and US (armed with old US and Soviet surplus + Chinese backing and supply): Algeria, Tunisia, Senegal, Mali, Niger,  Zimbabwe, Zambia, Democratic Republic of Congo (very very splintered, poorly equipped), Eritrea,  (Djibouti was taken over by Eritrea), and Rwanda.
 

Conflict is spread thoroughly throughout Africa.  For the most part the overly violent open clashes are between the independent countries and warring tribes.  In countries bordering US and EEC backed countries there are brief border skirmishes and terrorist activities, sometimes breaking out into full scale incidents as the countries fearful of Super Power control, and complete distrust of the western world make pre-emptive strikes to discourage invasion, and treat any infringement on their borders with extreme prejudice.  Even in the countries controlled by the EEC and US there is often tension lying just below the surface, and in some cases total chaos.  Revolutionaries, terrorism, and tribal conflict still take action far too frequently for the large militaries to let their guard down.  Open conflict between the United States and the EEC is generally confined to Ethiopia and The Democratic Republic of the Congo.  In stark contrast to the situations in  other countries where the two Superpowers have often been in situations offering full support to one another.
