African country one of its most important allies outside of NATO.

'For the US, Morocco is important because of its relations with
Israel, but Algeria is heading toward having better economic
relations with Washington because of the Algerian oil reserve and
natural resources.'

The 'Islamic terror' in Algeria is reportedly organised by the
Algerian government which is close ally of the USA, UK and France.

Before 1991, Algeria had a 'corrupt and unpopular dictatorship'.

In 1991 the Islamic Party known as FIS won a landslide in the
country's first FREE multiparty elections.

not happy.
