Abstract : The paper examines civil-military interrelations in Nigeria, Zaire, and Ethopia, and the impact these countries have on US national security interests. These three countries are the most important countries in Africa to the US, in the area of national security interests. In each of the three countries there is an examination of the civil-military inter-mix since independence and an assessment of the present political situation and outlook for the future. In each section there is a historical look at US relations in general with each country and then a closer examination of specific US involvements in economic, educational, military sales and assistance programs.
