As Americans say. if you want peace, be ready for War. Angola is one of those that have seen seen war longer than anyone in Africa, and indeed wants peace.

I like it...I am an history buff, specially military history. So I enjoy the thread. Every country needs a strong national defense system. The military is an important institution...:cheers: of course we should not allocate excessive resources in these sector, but it can not be ignored. We need smarter, leaner and faster army for this century.
