Although I agree that this man should be brought to justice I find it very ironic that it's the liberals shouting for involvement. Although this guy should be taken out, it would no doubt cause lots of international problems and be another seemingly endless war. Look, Saddam was no peach either. He gassed his own people people. Yet that war was condemned especially after we caught Saddam. So if the US goes into Uganda takes out Kony and ends up staying there years after because of terrorism and what not, will the liberals condemn the very war they helped started?
It hurts me to see this going on but the US can't take out all these bad guys, and there are plenty. What about the Los Zetas in Mexico? Other rebels in other African countries doing the same thing? Sierra Leone had the same problem. America can assist other countries but we can't fight their wars for them, like we pretty much did in Vietnam.

The aim isn't to kill him, as yes, it puts the children at risk. The plan is to capture him and take him to trial, while retrieving the children and rehabilitating them.

I question why is Gaddafi on the hit list. But not to be off topic, Gaddafi was a man that did some good.
Now Kony, from what the producer said, I would personally take up arms and hunt him down and make him pay for what he has done to the young.
But it's not my place to take up arms when everything else begins to fall apart.
Kony's crimes are his sins, he's not willing to repent, and not willing to let up. Let those who he has murdered haunt his life and soul forever.
I was surprised by Obama's action to send troops, I believe he did that to quiet down the crowd and stop the "annoyance" how selfish of him.

So I ask myself why if Kony has been #1 on the World court list since 2005 haven't I heard of him
