Cuba, Angola, and South Africa, 1975-1990. The Carnation Revolution of 25 April 1974 in Portugal took the world by surprise and caught the independence movements in its last African colonies unprepared. Until independence, the independence movements’ priority lay in fighting the colonial power and they initially had no clear alliances. With the disappearance of Portugal as their common foe, ethnic and ideological rivalries moved to the fore. Fighting between the three already broke out in November 1974, starting in Luanda and quickly spreading across all of Angola. FNLA troops, flown in from Zaire, had been taking positions in Luanda since October 1974.

The US increased its support for the FNLA and for the first time took up funding of UNITA. Other western countries with their own clandestine support for FNLA and UNITA were Great Britain and France.
