Ethiopia was defeated by Britain at Magdall in 1868!

Ethiopia should stop hiding the deafeat it suffered by the British Army 1868. Life is lossing and winning. It does not matter if the British defeated Ethiopia in 1868. The poin is to draw a lesson why the Bitidh Army was stronger than Ethiopia's. The whole occupation of most of Ethiopia's political rulers and kings was to make Ethiopia's military industry as good as that of Europe. Little has been achieve in this sector.

Twedros killed himself and his wife was taken prison. Tewedros's son was taken as a priosner to Britain and died there. Emperor Twedros was alooser as he killed him self to avoid defeat. He knew his wif and children could be taken as capitives or prisoners. Some Ethiopians see Emperor Twedros as a hero even though Ethiopia was defeated by Britain in 1868. Ethiopia should not see Tewedros as a hero as he was a looser and a poor politican and diplomat. Killing one self a sin in Christianity. And losing a war is a disgrace.

I heard that the people/soldiers who actually cut-off the warlord's [Atse Twedros's] hair-locks/shuruba were ethnic Tigre helping the British. Then again, why are we surprised to learn that?

Tewodros was hated by the Oromos too, so it was not like there was an united Ethiopian opposition to the British.
It's not fair to say ethiopia was defeated, nor is it proper-i'd say, tewodros the mad man was defeated.
