The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

    I'd say the odds have to be shortening:

    On a rocky hillside, at Zalambessa, on Ethiopia's northern border, there are now long lines of trenches and bunkers.

    They have been built during the course of this year to guard against possible attack from Eritrea.

  2. Is there any oil there?

    Heard the reports on R4 over the weekend. It appears that somehow the UN force's aircraft have been grounded by one side or the other in order that they cannot observe troop movement and build up. Short of breaking the planes or ruinways wasn't sure how this could be achieved, but it evidently has been.

    I would have thought a simple string of trucks across the runway would have the desired effect.
