On a routinely basis, various editors keep changing the result from "Ethiopian military victory" to "Stalemate" (or an equivalent). No sources have supported this idea, and the article itself makes it quite clear that Ethiopia won the war militarily. If the claim holds any merit, its proponents need to back it up with something.

@Sedit11: I'm sure it's fun to add "Eritrean Victory" to every article you come across. But have you thought of actually reading the articles first? (I want to assume good faith, but I see that you've already been warned twice, so here we go.) Mikrobølgeovn (talk) 23:33, 7 February 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Eritreanfreedomfighter: Did you actually read the sources? I very much doubt that, because if you had, you would have known that they unanimously contradict your claim that this war ended in a "stalemate". The sources and the article itself makes it very clear that Ethiopia won the military part of the war. Mikrobølgeovn (talk) 04:16, 11 February 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I am confused as to how the figure of 150,000 dead Eritreans is being used as a reliable number. Upon looking at the "sources" it states that the figure was claimed by 'some people' without a definitive person or organization being mentioned. All other sources of casualties have this set as a minimal benchmark. If there are no objections I wish to have this figure removed due to lack of definitive source.
