Why was North Africa a battleground of world war 2?

It was a start up to the war for the United States, really. The Allies wanted to make sure that the U.S. was ready for war, and used North Africa to "warm up" the United States soliders. Hitler invaded N. Africa because he was going for World Domination. Even before the US entered WWII, North Africa was a battle ground. Hitler did not have designs on North Africa. Mussolini's botched attempt to capture the Suez Canal forced Hitler to bail Italy out by committing German troops to support and then supersede his partner. Hitler would have preferred using the troops in Russia.
