How was Ethiopia not colonized by the Italians? After Mussolinis forces invaded Ethiopia they had complete control over and starved the people into submission.

Actually it was more the British who pushed the Italians out than the Ethiopians themselves considering they only were able to do it with British help. I now know Ethiopia wasn't colonized by the Italians but it certainly was controlled by them for a bit and they certainly didn't avoid control, just colonization. In fact the Ethiopian Emperor surrendered when the Italians forced them into submission when they poisoned their crops amongst other things.
