Two things:

1. Ethiopia is pulling it's troops out in short order. They have no intention of getting tied up in an insurgency or what ever word you want to describe what is about to start. They have big troubles brewing back at home.

2. Any "Peacekeeping" forces put in, will have no better chance of rooting out the UIC there, than we have had in Iraq, unless the peacekeeping forces are allowed to conduct operations, without the world media reporting how many civilians they kill each day.

And they can keep the UN from micromanaging the Military leadership on the ground.

And of course, they don't run out of money to pay the troops and have to withdraw before a strong enough government can keep the warlords in check.
