The article addresses issues concerning the proposed policies of the U.S. government in Africa. Often the promise of brave words by the U.S. was extravagant and unwise; but the promise has not been acted upon correspondingly. The author offers suggestions on how to restore the promise and the credibility of U.S. policy in Africa. It would be in the interest of the U.S. if the heavy dependence of its respective "client states" in Africa could be progressively broadened and shared.
