They integrate into the rebel groups that they recognize are responsible for many of the troubles in their society, yet believe that this represents their best short-term option, given that no government will help to protect them. Some have no choice, particularly in instances in which children are kidnapped and forced to join their captors in battle. A few discover that they excel at this kind of fighting and may conclude that this is a wise career choice. The opportunity to command other people and participate in their warlord patron’s political plans outweighs the risks of combat.
Even parochial rebels who provide protection to narrowly circumscribed communities rarely question the existence of the states in which they find themselves. 18 The great majority of warlords fight to capture the capital city or at least to get included in a post-conflict government. Existing states clearly hold great attraction for rebels, play a key role in their definitions of goals, and shape their strategies. The reasons why armed groups are so accepting of existing states and their boundaries shed light on the distinctive nature of Africa’s states.
The sanctity of African states also plays a key role in limiting the incidence of interstate wars. Even parties to Africa’s few interstate wars have claimed to fight for the principle of preserving existing borders. In 1985, conflicting interpretations of the true colonial borders caused a five-day war between Mali and Burkina Faso over a contested territory known as the Agacher Strip. The following year, the International Court of Justice (ICJ) ruled on the dispute, using colonial survey maps to define the border.
