The U.S. and South Africa have been meddling in Angola since the early 1970s. This is the cause of the present-day violence, not the Cubans. Angola has a right to defend itself and who else is there to turn to but the Soviet-bloc countries? If the U.S. would cease funding UNITA, UNITA would disappear and the Angolan government could address itself to the issues of poverty and hunger.
