Although the US supplies military aid, training and weapons to over 50 of the 54 nations on the African continent, the militarization of US Africa policy, and its decisive contribution to Africa being the mjost war-torn region on earth are simply ignored by corporate US media. Its minerals and energy reserves make Africa a prime target for imperial predation. Incessant wars guarantee that enfeeble African civil societies will be unable to prevent their US trained militaries from handing over African ressources to the West rather than using them to build schools, hospitals and civil societies. US instigated wars in Somalia have killed over a million people since the mid 1990s, and made another million homeless. And now the bombs are falling again.
