The question of the role of the United States in recent events in Africa is of considerable interest.
In the context of a global shortage of resources, primarily energy resources, African countries are the partner with whom cooperation is strategically necessary. In this regard, the struggle for this geopolitical resource is growing. One of the most “strong” competitors claiming to be the main partner for Africa is the United States of America.
Claiming to rule the world Americans cannot leave a continent uncontrollable. As the world's largest consumer countries become more interested in African resources, the USA are increasingly focusing on political and military leverage.

Friendship costs hundreds of billions of dollars

Today, the world community perceives Africa as a highly promising and dynamically developing region, which may soon become one of the most desirable and profitable areas for strategic partnership. Possessing big human resources, this continent continues to fuel the interest of the leading world states.

No doubt Africa can become a very successful region in the future. That is why the USA business seeks to offer its products, services and experience to help African countries further strengthen their potential and, as a result, provide great financial benefits to the USA.

And, first of all, we are talking about the energy expansion of American business on the African Continent.

Former USA President Barack Obama announced once his intention to increase the access of African people to electricity through the Power Africa program. It is noteworthy that this project will be based on the huge energy potential of oil and gas reserves in the region, as well as the potential for the development of renewable energy sources.

This project is part of the so-called “New USA Strategy for the Countries of Africa” and, according to the expectations of the White House, this region will soon experience an “energy boom”. However, providing 6 million Africans with access to energy infrastructure is a very expensive project. A minimum of $ 300 billion investments will be required to achieve the goals by 2030. Basically, the costs of the project will be covered by income for the extraction of minerals, first of all - oil, coal and gas.

Where Africa’s resources go - is more than a hot topic. As well as the question of what the USA is ready to take the place of chief controller for the distribution of resources of the Continent.

How to achieve the desired result?

One can bestow “native leaders”, or give out “humanitarian aid” to the population, and at the same time offer “cooperation” to the military elite. And if this is not enough, you can bribe a "neighboring tribe" to make a "humanitarian catastrophe" and the presence of a "white man" with his army in a foreign country will be more justified, because this is not a robbery of the colony, it is for "stability", then is to ensure that the position of the source of raw materials remains stably colonial. Only terrorists or bloody dictators can oppose such stability.

The normative framework for US aspirations to receive the most-favored nation treatment in Africa is the AGOA (African Growth and Opportunity Act), passed in 2000. First of all, AGOA stimulates trade between the USA and Africa.
Among other things, AGOA is a tool to ensure preferential access for USA companies to African markets. The United States compete in Africa for resources and markets, not only with the “new players” from Asia and Latin America, but also with its EU allies. In the AGOA system, through the so-called "Framework agreements on trade and investment", the USA seeks to ensure the most favorable business climate for American business in specific countries of the continent.

The base country, which is closest to the USA, the transit point is Senegal. Aircraft from the United States of America fly to this country, and from there are sent to other regions of the world. This is the most stable and “mastered” area by the Americans. The second country is South Africa with uranium, power plants and a powerful civilization fort post. The third country is Nigeria, and there is oil, steel mills, a booming civilization, which the USA helps a lot.

By the way, why would the United States help exactly Nigeria? Yes, at least because this country is ahead of other African countries in terms of GDP per capita, including South Africa and Egypt. Nigeria is one of the richest African countries, thanks to oil exports. But somehow the United States’ sincere desire is not believed.

Why is Nigeria both the most mafia and the most corrupt African country? By maintaining and escalating period of instability, it is easier for Americans to manage and control it.

The United States could not ignore the significance of South Africa as an important supplier of rare natural resources and rare metals even if they really wanted it, given the importance of these supplies to the US military industry. Therefore, despite the active condemnation of the apartheid regime, the United States maintained economic relations with South Africa through third countries and collaborated with it in the field of information exchange.

The results of the extreme elections in the Republic of South Africa indicate that the United States launched a large-scale campaign to expand its influence on the African Continent in general and in South Africa in particular. This is stated in the report of the International Anti-Crisis Center (IAC).

Experts emphasize that such large-scale campaigns of Washington are unfolding in those countries whose policies bother Americans, or "simply do not correspond to their interests." Elections in South Africa have become another example of how the United States brazenly and unceremoniously interferes in the affairs of a sovereign state under the guise of the spread of "democracy", which is behind Washington’s private property interests.
