One major reason why the terrorist organizations thrive in Africa is because of the corruption of governments and the HIGH unemployment rates. By offering to build up jobs and strengthen local economies, this takes away terrorist organizations ground ability to recruit and survive. Not everything has to be military operated but I also suggest offering the African governments in question military equipment for a price. Our weaponry and vehicles do not come free and if they so want the equipment, they sign a charter that would mandate freedoms and rights to the people while taking away the corruption in governments there. If they do not comply but use our equipment by breaking the charter, their resources become property of the US government and our military is sent in to recover the assets.
