Confusing Statements[edit]

I think it's gret that there's an article on ECOMOG, but some of the statements are quite confusing - they don't seem to have been fully contextualised:

"Nigerian scholar Adekeye Adebajo wrote in 2002 that "there was merit...in the argument that the establishment of ECOMOG did not conform to the constitutional legal requirements of ECOWAS". The Standing Mediation Committee, the body that established ECOMOG at its meeting in Banjul, Gambia on 6–7 August 1990, was 'on shaky legal foundations' "

- Why? It would be helpful if the article stated what it was about about the formation of ECOMOG that was legally questionable.

"Anglophone members of ECOMOG acted because the Francophone ECOWAS members were opposed to mobilising the AAFC under the previous year's protocol."

-What was the previous year's protocol?

"After some prompting from Taylor that the anglophone Nigerians and Ghanaians were opposed to him, Senegalese troops were brought in with some financial support from the United States."

- I really don't understand this statement. It seems counterintutitive that an Anglophone leader would feel that other Anglophone countries opposed him, and would turn to a Francophone country for support. This needs explaining, or, if the respective languages are irrelevant, the references to language should be removed. Either way, it would be helpful if Taylor's reason's for feeling this way were detailed. Melaena (talk) 12:05, 5 August 2010 (UTC)

Past Tense?[edit]

So, does ECOMOG still exist? I can't find any references to is dissolution; indeed, ECOMOG was a participant in the intervention in Mali in 2013 according to news sites. Why is the article written in past tense? 2601:D:CC80:1FF:4983:B9AB:189B:7EC8 (talk) 02:22, 28 May 2015 (UTC)
