#1 I can't make head or tail of that headline. With no summary, either.

#2 It makes a funny sense when you get to the article.

#3 That's the point of the headline, isn't it? To tell us about the article. The summary tells us more. Here, we have a pig in a poke. Who knows if the article is worth reading or not? My time is valuable and I already click on too many worthless links.

#4 My apologies grom.
The intent was to draw attention to the paranoia and absolute hypocracy of Sub-Saharan Africa to even the slightest hint, or appearance of a US presence. Not so many years ago, railing against the evils of apartheid, the US and the West turned a blind eye to Cuban involvement in that particular nation's quest for independence. Today that same nation and much of the region embraces Chinese Communist investment and military assistance.
