Summary Somalia inherited a colonial legacy of ethnically unrepresentative borders that led to war with neighbours and national impoverishment. In 1992 the United Nations intervened to protect the distribution of humanitarian aid. After an initial commitment of a small contingent, Australia decided to deploy a 1,000-strong infantry battalion group when the United States-led Unified Task Force intervened to back up the UN mission in Somalia (UNOSOM).
