and how exactly does spreading this video help anything?

He's already designated as a high-level terrorist in a high level terrorist group and has a warrant carrying over 30 charges.

If people want him arrested, then all of that is in place already. If people want to go to war with the LRA, then they are all retarded because they'll turn against the war the moment a picture of a child dead at american hands turns up, even though they (the people) forced our military into such a situation.

I get why they want to raise awareness of him in the U.S, given the US specialists and everything. But even then, finding and capturing Koney is not a certain thing. It took the US nearly 10 years to find Bin Laden, and they were actively hunting for him.

A lot of these people can easily slip into other African states and drop of the radar.

And even if they do capture him, will it sort out all the problems in Uganda? Absolutely not. The trauma these kids have will take years to recover from, and some may never recover. The country is still has a terrible economy and life expectancy, and Africa is still full of this horrible unspoken civil wars with Children forced to be soldiers.

Look I'm not unsympathetic to this cause and it's motivations, and helping these people with their charity does go some way in improving their lives and prospects, but going after one man is not going to redefine history. Will Capturing/killing Koney stop the LRA? Not likely. It will go some way to bring some semblance of peace to his victims, but will it stop the cycle of violence? Unfortunately no.

I'm surprised that this is just now getting some attention... you'd think after Blood Diamond came out it would right?

theres already soldiers looking for kony, but if america doesnt seem like they care about this, then the search will be called off. this search was only started because the people demanded it. i just think that the children should be helped, and kony should be brought to justice. so im spreading it.

No one has cared about africa since we stopped shipping people from there.



It's not nice, but that's just how shit is.




Every 3 years there's a genocide going on and no one has cared. Why the care now?

Internet superheros and starbucks hipsters thinking they can make a difference like Libya did with twitter. Now they get to feel good about "saving africa" while drinking a 7 dollar mocha latte and twittering on there 400 dollar ipad and think they made a difference while real men/women actually fight with boots on the ground.



Bottom line: Fuck hipsters.

Kony has been wanted for some time now, not just because of an internet video, but because he is a war felon.

That is the most valid reason I have heard yet. However, before we go after him for his delicious meat covered tubes of meat, just how many coney dogs are we talking about? 10? 50? 1,000,000,000,000?

ntm, most of his child soldiers will die before we can get to him. The moment a picture of their dead bodies hits the internet, popular support will disappear, and the government will be evil again.

I really do love how these people asking us to intervene in Africa are the same ones (generally speaking) that think we shouldn't be intervening in the middle east. They're both FOR and AGAINST America being the world's police.

I think that's a given how clearly they were comparing him to Hitler, in both their imagery and posters.

I didn't either.

I know what the situation is and that the charity sponsoring the video is corrupt. No information in that video should be news to me.

They've responded to most of what was posted on that Tumlr page and most criticisms in general.

When Peter Pan makes a child army it's fine but when it's a black man you all raise shit.
