Pagination or Media Count:
The OGADEN War, a brief but costly war fought by Ethiopia and Somalia had been aggravated by outside intervention for many years, and in 1970s by the so called superpowers. At the heart of the issues underlying the OGADEN War in the Horn of Africa lie three legacies of the past European colonial rule Somali irredentism and superpowers intervention. Fundamentally, this costly war did not achieve any tangible positive result as far as the Horn of Africa is concerned. Indeed OGADEN and other border issues between Ethiopia, Somalia and other regional neighbors remain unresolved some 19 years after the OGADEN War. This conflict can be viewed as a meaningless tragedy for the people of the Horn of Africa.
