. . . The war known so disengenously as the Ethiopian-Eritrean "border
war". The war where the CIA set out to get rid of a pesky little
independent role model without generating any bad publicity. Where
the little country that got invaded is still blamed for the crimes
committed against her.
Where the pretext for the invasion by Ethiopia was supposed to be a
"border dispute" that some how got out of hand. That little,
resource-poor nation Eritrea, population 3.5 million, supposedly
instigated a war with giant Ethiopia, population 60 million, with
the largest, best equiped army in Africa?
