The Zaire Wars are an ongoing series of conflicts in Africa between the reformed Republic of Zaire and various nations.
In 2016, the Democratic Republic of the Congo invaded the Republic of the Congo, Rwanda and Uganda, receiving global admonishment. The DRC renamed themselves Zaire in the same year. Zaire invaded Angola in 2019, after being warned by the U.S. not to do so. The U.S. responded by sending a blockade to Tanzania, which was subsequently attacked by the Zarians, sinking two frigates and a destroyer. Infuriated, the U.S. retaliated with a ground invasion along with the U.K, who had been asked by President Santorum for support. In 2022, Zaire butchered 400 U.S. soldiers and 50,000 refugees after a carpet bombing attack.
The U.S attempted to assassinate the Zairian President in 2022, the mission was a failure, however and a U.S. agent was killed. Spain, who had initially refused a request by the U.S. to become military involved, began airstrikes on Zairian anti-aircraft positions in the same year.
