You certainly implied that very thing in a couple of posts.
Point it out?
Understand, the US didn't contract with mercenaries to fight in Angola. The US offered financial aid and some small arms delivered through proxies. Mercenaries were present for the same reason they are present in any such conflict. Money is available for them to fight. The US did not assist SA in Angola and Namibia. It's true that our efforts were sometimes congruent, but that was simply a matter of convenience and not an endorsement of a more expansive cooperation or an expression of policy.
You know who Frank Wisner is? You ever watched his interview on US involvement in Angola and payments through South Africa and Mobutu in Zaire? Seems he's happy to confess what you are unable as an American to see.
Now watch Chester Crocker, Herman Cohen, Frank Wisner as well as Pik Botha and various Cubans who were there tell me a different story from the one you're peddling.
