Still butt-hurt and b*tching about a man who has been dead for over 130 years?
:mjlol:

I have to give credit to Emperor Menelik II not only for organizing over 100k fighters, planing ahead and acquiring modern weapons, beating decisively an European army and making Ethiopia the only independent African country but also for making some elites still b*tch about him 130 years after his death :ftw9nwa:. Show me an African leader whose legacy lasts more than a year after his death :ftw9nwa: Meles' legacy and his organization is completely wiped out in Ethiopia :ftw9nwa: Honestly, you have to give Emperor Menelik II credit. He is something else.

He is also the father of modern Ethiopia. He brought Railways, Cars, Banking, Telefon, Hotel, Postal and many other services to Ethiopia.

You can blame Emperor Menelik II for everything but b*tching about what he did in Adwa shows only how butt-hurt you are. Any African must be proud of Adwa and honestly without Adwa there may never be independent African states to begin with.

:salute:

Fakenews at its best.
 
There were Russian commaders fighting alongside the abysinians because Russians and Abysinians are copts different from Italian Roman catholic.

Just like the second Ethio Italian war which Britain came to aid Ethiopia which Ethiopians dont give credit to Britain.
there werent any russian generals. the russians (and french iirc) offered to send advisors to ethiopia but they declined. you're right about the second italo-ethiopian war tho

i congratulate you on trolling some users but lets not lie here. no european was suddenly touched by the ghost of menelik when decolonization happened. it was a result of the WW2 and the european powers no longer being able to afford to keep colonies and education in the colonies resulting in more, and better organised, protests and attacks against colonialism

saxib if the were russian generals id have no reason to deny it. ive simply never seen evidence of russian, or any european, generals commanding or fighting at adwa
Thier was a rumor that ethiopian had russian advisors and volunteers but it was based on a random russian diplomat who visited after adwa

Thier were russian advisors but they never commanded the army that was mostly indigenous

200K abysinians vs 30K Italians.

The Conquest of Harar by Menelik was assisted by the British & French.

There was always foreign advisors to menelik.
Even Britain did not want Italy to take over Abysinia.
Menelik wasnt a strong figure because he was always under house arrest by former Abysinian emperors I think it was Yohanes who was killed by the Mahdi who fought both the British and Abysinians.

The battle in Jigjiga by the Sayid Abdille Xassan against Menelik also showed how Britain was vital in supporting the Abysinians.

Somali coast was taken over by 3 European colonisers Britain,France and Italy however still somalis were still formidable to Abysinians.
If these guys were not around I dont think Menelik would have a chance against Somalis at all.

the berlin conference happened in 1885 and the battle of adwa happened in 1896 almost 10 years after the Europeans had agreed on their territorial division of Africa so that means the British wouldn't care if Italy had invaded ethiopia

not to forget Britain fought a war with ethiopia after tewodros kidnapped British tourists in 1867 so the British and french were not close friends of Ethiopia also the fact the Ethiopians had a territorial dispute with France over Djibouti


you cant deny that the victory was an Ethiopian well deserved victory they earned it and deserve to celebrate it

Gowwa, when have Hararge Oromos fought in the battle of Adwa? We had nothing to do with it. It’s not our history. After that battle, the monkey Menilik and his gantu followers decided to claims lands that were not theirs and many of our people lost their lives at the battle of Calaanqo and Anoole.

The battle of Adwa was the beginning of the imperial conquest of Oromo, Sidama, Somali etc lands. Nothing to be proud of fool.
You have alot inferiority complex man,,The battle of Adwa was Oromo victory against our country Ethiopia...It have nothing to do with Menelik..Menelik himself was Oromo FYI...Amharas had nothing in Ethiopia then or now.

You are the type Oromo who thinks Amharas are white people 😂...I doubt if you are noole even. Afran Qallo Oromos ,We are known for our bravery.Even Menelik was afraid f us..You must be Arsi or Wallo.
 
So menelik was Oromo right.
He sent bare foot oromo slaves with spears to the frontline to act as sheild.
Menelik was half Oromo..Oromo were bare foot soldiers ??really ...nigga, 9 out of The Battle of Adwa generals were Oromo!!!!!!..The Battle of ADWA was an Oromo victory ,,It's the like of @AfranQallo Who gave it to the smelly mouth Amharas!

Abysinai was represented in the Berlin conference and their land was demarcated.

Menelik main Goal was to help Britain solidify its colonies in the region particularly around the great lakes ( victoria) The Nile river which was a life line of Egypt and also Somali coast which protected the Beitish trade routes.
So if Italy took over Abysinia it would go against the agreement and would be a threat to The British empire as the Source of the nile was in Abysinia at that time the Abysinians were primitive to develop dams so Italy would pose a great threat to Great Britains ambtions in Africa if they had taken Abysinia.

Those veterans were featsted on by hyenas and wild animals.
Care to explain how under menelik millions of oromos were killed by him while amhara only become wealthier and class under Menelik.

A language doesn't mean shit...A country can adopt a language without being a language of majority of not...Like in Kenya Kikuyus are social-econonically dorminant but the national language is Swahili.

A language doesnt mean shit when your entire culture and hsitory was turned into Amharic and even you had amharic names.
This reminds me of Kunta Kinte film.

Places like kenya Tanzanian Uganda etc dont have swahili culture or names but only the language but in Abysina you celebrated Amahara festives and were also told to beleive by amharas that you came from madagascar.

if the British felt threatened of italys ambitions they would have invaded ethiopia to secure their interests like they did in the crimean war to deny russia 'and also the British afghan wars were fought over primarily because the British wanted to secure the indian subcontinent from the threat of russsia

according to your logic if Britain wanted to protect her asserts in egypt and the nile river why didn they just invade ethiopia

They did that is why they did it in ww2.

Haile selasie was groomed by french he spoke fluent french.
Who do you think dethroned Lij Iyasu the muslim emperor of Ethiopia if it wasnt by the church and the Western imperialists.

Yoy just need to see how previous abysinain emprors were killed by Sudaneese like Yohanes while Towerdos killed himself ater his palace was put under siege by British.
We well know Mwnelik was no match for both Yohanes and Towerdos.
