#3 Is Guinea-Bissau one of those African countries that Mexican and South American drug smugglers use as a way station on their way to Europe? I read a story a while back about how they were using Ivory Coast that way and the money was corrupting the hell out of the local officials because the smugglers can carry more money in one suitcase than the entire annual GDP of some of these little African countries.

#6 The Dogs of War, which chronicles a failed plan by a group of European mercenaries to topple the government of a fictional African country.
