First Liberian Civil War
While it is true that Doe was toppled, and although ECOMOG did occasionally cooperate with government forces when it came under fire by the NPLF, it did not fight to preserve the Doe government. The ECOMOG force was there to "impose a cease-fire; help Liberians establish an interim government until elections could be held; stop the killing of innocent civilians". Elections were held, but the subsequent course of history makes it evident the mission to bring an end to the war had not succeeded by 1997. However, as Charles Taylor assumed power through an election the ECOMOG wanted to take place, ECOMOG was hardly "defeated" in any sense. Failure to bring about a lasting peace, maybe (as shown by the outbreak of renewed conflict soon after), but nevertheless a success in the sense that it brought the factions to the ballots (as shown by the reference that keeps getting deleted). --Mikrobølgeovn (talk) 23:33, 1 February 2016 (UTC)

Orphaned references in List of wars involving Nigeria
I check pages listed in Category:Pages with incorrect ref formatting to try to fix reference errors. One of the things I do is look for content for orphaned references in wikilinked articles. I have found content for some of List of wars involving Nigeria's orphans, the problem is that I found more than one version. I can't determine which (if any) is correct for this article, so I am asking for a sentient editor to look it over and copy the correct ref content into this article.
