    I think that:

    1.Eritrean soldiers entered the Badme region, a region supervised by the Ethiopian administration

    2.That when Eritrea became independent in 1991(de facto) and 1993(de jure), Ethiopia was left without a coastline and became a landlocked country( Border disputes between Ethiopia and Eritrea still exists)

    American interests and bad foreign policy .

    War profits from sales of arms ( England, America , France and Russia)

    Petty tribal issues stemming back years that have no meaning

    Misappropriation and corruption of foreign aid ( how can these people have no food yet have money for weapons)

    Basically tribal conflicts with major powers pulling strings and finance.

    Nobody wants Ethiopia or Eritrea, but they do not want anyone else to have it either.
