Because I have a truce with Italy and I, therefore, wouldn't be able to declare war on them unless we're both in factions. And then I wouldn't be able to ask for peace.Intelligence officer: Sir don't disband your troops the popular support of the Democratic parties is deceptive.
Haile Selassie: What do you mean?
IO: Italy is a dictatorship. Mussolini doesn't care how popular other parties are. He'll attack anyway.
Good work so far. I had vague Ideas of doing an Ethiopian AAR. Still why don't you give yourself cores on Eritrea so you can take it and grab it in a peace deal to get that all important port.
No I haven't disbanded my troops Don't trust the picture captions. Hmm, it seems you've pursaded me to not upgrade my troops. But I don't want to research mountain troops, and mountain/desert training.You're not seriously disbanding your few troops, do you? Besides, I'm getting confused with your mixup if regiments and ingame divisions... I suspect that you're talking about divisions, don't you?
I'll vote against upgrading the Militias. First of all you're already researching for them, secondly they'll demand a lot more officers and thirdly you'll most likely not see much enemy anyway. I'd suggest to build another 2 brigade infantry divisions, though, so you can conduct a two pronged attack
