It is a long conflict that no other African country had ever witnessed.                                                                                            

    The research has also examined the extension of the Angolan civil war during the year 1993, in which continuous battles took place between the UNITA organization and the MPLA government, and the international community’s attempts to stop the conflict. All peace initiatives failed. The study also observed the attitude of the United States of America towards the war. America  two fold a double policy towards Angola which was the cause behind the continuity of the war.
