... that several African countries are failed states with no real central government, and in which former provinces are virtually independent nations. Which of those quasi-independent nations have armies with uniforms that bear rank insignia?
Is that an anti-african statement, or did you (rather unarticulately) ask that whether african secessionist movements bear their own unique insignia?
The second, of course. I could never be anti-African, given that I have several black relatives in Puerto Rico.
Well the South African Bantustans had their own armies and police forces so I suppose that counts.

This website already has the armies of Bophuthatswana and Transkei, so when will it have entries for Ciskei and Venda? Also, did Transkei have a naval force?
I do not think so:
Quote: "The Transkei Defence Force (TDF) numbered about 2,000, including one infantry battalion and an air wing with two light transports and two helicopters."
