This article is a must read if people are to wake up to all this. www.activistpost.com...


Well, well, well, I think that just about sums it up, my friends. Thanks, quedup......

I don't even think there's anything else to be said about this situation. Follow the money....and look where you wind up......same sh*t, different day.

We have been in Egypt, Libya, now we are targeting Uganda, and next will be Sudan, and South Sudan. All have proven easily accessible oil reserves with modern equipment


I've figured out how we will get into Sudan!!


As the article states the LRA (Lords Resistance Army) hasn't been in Uganda for nearly 6 years. I think we will make our pressence known in Uganda under the guise of searching for Kony and then the "NEWS" will surface that him and his men havnt been there in quite a while. Then an anonymous tip will surface saying that he's been spotted in Sudan carrying on his dastardly ways. We will leave some of our forces in Uganda just incase and to 'help' them rebuild. We will then move our efforts from Sudan to south Sudan after another anonymous tip and leave some of our people in Sudan 'just in case. Once we have our talons dug into Uganda, Sudan and S.Sudan, Kony will be captured and the world will all feel the warm and fuzzys knowing they've help to remove a very bad bad man.

Seeing all this unfold is like that friend you had as a kid that always used the same dang combo move on mortal combat that killed you every freaking time. He used it every time and you knew it was coming but there wasnt much you could do once the combo got started.


Yes it's quite clear and you are absolutely correct in your prediction. I've posted a video below which makes clear that Kony and the LRA have not been active in Uganda since Operation Lightning Thunder, in which the Ugandan government launched a massive assault on the LRA, which was both encouraged and supported by the Bush administration. But he got advance notice of the operation, and because it took 3 days for the troops to reach the location, the LRA had disbanded and escaped into Sudan, the DR Congo and the Central African Republic.(so here's our "news" of him not being in Uganda)

Later on in the video it's confirmed that Kony and some of his men have been in direct contact with Kartoum(capital of Sudan) and that he has been operating in both Sudan and South Sudan. (so here's our anonymous tip)




Here's the link to the video in case the above doesn't work.(I apologize but that was my first attempt at embeding
)

Ok so up until tonight I have resisted the whole "Kony 2012" thing.

When it was posted by facebook friends....I ignored it,

When it trended at # 1 on Yahoo... I didn't click.

But tonight I have been suckered in, as I felt I cannot hold a true personal opinion without knowing what the fuss is all about.

I'm happy to report the whole thing is very sinister.

Sure there have been atrocities, just as there are in our own backyard (think child abuse), and I get that some are bigger than others.

However, one of the first statements made in the vid is "This is an experiment."

You bet your life it is !

An experiment to see how fast, we the people can react to something most knew nothing about prior to the release on youtube, then to see how powerful a movement can be generated, and what it could lead to, Will April 20th produce streets lined with Kony posters ? Will Kony fever run high, and lead to social disorder ?

Most importantly how fast can governments work to contain internet/media induced hysteria ?

The vid also talks about an idea, and uses the words.... "an idea whose time has come."

perhaps I'm a little rusty on my grammar, but isn't this an inappropriate use of language, to in effect assign the word idea, as an entity, or person ? Or is that just the idea (sorry about the pun).

If this campaign fully realises its potential, and the aim is to assess the threat our modern day comunication presents, then this could be a real game changer for the future impact on our day to day lives.

Of course I could be wrong, but thats my take on it all.

Side note : Despite what I have written above, I have no wish to belittle the impact of individuals whose lives have been destroyed by Kony, they have suffered, and that should be learnt from, and never forgotten.

Not only that, but did you read that last paragraph.....

So we are responding with our most ambitious and controversial event to date. THE RESCUE is a worldwide rally on April 25th in 100 cities across 10 countries. Participants will 'abduct themselves' on behalf of abducted child soldiers. Each city will be 'rescued' by a prominent political or cultural figure who attends the event and makes a statement on behalf of the child soldiers. Confirmed rescuers include Pete Wentz, Kirsten Dunst, Kristen Bell, Switchfoot, and Paramore among others. Together we are demanding that our world leaders make this conflict a visible priority and put an end to the longest-running war in Africa.

What?? I'm sorry but to me that mocks what these children have been through. People have lost their flippin' minds.

OiO


Oh, dear god. I missed that. Not only mocking what the kids have been through, but using high-profile actors and musicians to manipulate and influence the opinions of our young people. How transparent can they be? I would like to advise our "powers that be" that some of us out here in Americaland haven't consumed so much fluoride that we've lost ALL of our ability to see through bulls**t.

And I might add, NICE GOIN' celebrities!!! Glad to see you jump right on the COW DUNG BANDWAGON without looking past your friggin' nose!

LOL! I thought the same thing the first time I heard that. It is definitely a poor choice of words for a situation like this. What is that EVEN SUPPOSED TO MEAN in relation to this?

I understand your point however I disagree with the reasoning behind charitable donations by Americans (or any people for that matter). I do not donate to a charity so that I can feel superior. I do not feel that when Americans stand up to help another person/country/ they do it so that they can feel superior. When disaster strikes and Americans reach into their pockets to help do you honestly think they are doing it for the glory? I don't. I think most people just instinctivly want to help others when they can. I saw a documentary the other day that was about this very subject and it showed a series of babies one and two year olds and how they relate to another in distress. A baby will cry just because someone else is crying. Most of the babies were nurturing and empathethic showing that empathy is something we are born with and is hard wired into our behavour models. Hard knocks may change some folks understandably but our basic nature is to stand up for the underdog. Thats how I see it anyway.

I have absolutely no idea (omg I'm on a roll with the pun's tonight lol).

Perhaps they saw V for Vendetta, but mis-interpreted its meaning somewhere along the line.

Or maybe that was the point, I have no (I'm not going to type that word again, you know then one I mean).

On a more topical note, do you think the Kony 2012er's will perhaps claim victory now this info is out in the open ?

Check out this video at the .57 second mark. Are those uniformed guys with the guns sponsored by AIG? Cause they are advertising in a major way.

OneisOne, I just did a retake on that first sentence you referred to in that article:

Their most "controversial event?" They have had previous controversial events? Why would an organization dedicated to a cause like this need to use "controversial events" to promote awareness?

Point taken. But do we have other countries donating to us? Do we get money from other countries to feed our poor, to better our schools, to fix our problems in general?

So why the hell do people feel the need to donate 10.5 million dollars of their money across the world when we have plenty of our own problems that they seem to not care less about?

That's exactly what I'm saying. People view them as the underdog, so therefore we must feel superior to them.

Well, the fact that the mainstream media is promoting this thing leaves no doubt about whose behind it....all roads lead back to our friends within the U.S. government.

Ya know when I first read that I didn't pay it any mind because I see their whole organization as a controversy. But now that you point it out I had a thought. It's almost like a smirk & nod to being branded "controversial". Now I think they like that label because it has not slowed their cause one bit. I checked their website and funny enough, they are sold out of merchandise so people are being directed to "give donations". Fancy that.

I gave some thought to the "Hollywood musical" comment and I'm at a loss to find the Julie Andrews of children being maimed and force to murder their parents. And as for "the rescue". There is not a politician or famous person out there I want to be my savior. The whole event just screams "rapture" to me.

I guess I'm not buying into any of it cause I'm on well water. No fluorination for me!

Thanks for the discussion on this NightGypsy. This whole thing has me crawling out of my skin! It helps to type about it.


OiO

Anyone else notice that in the video at 1:34 it says "the next 27 minutes are an experiment, but in order for it to work you have to pay attention". Obviously millions of people weren't paying attention then. This whole thing's a hoax.
Kony and the LRA left Uganda in 2006, invisiblechildren say so themselves. Only a third of their income goes to their cause. Also google "Africom" this thing is also about sending US troops to Africa with people's consent.

Perhaps an experiment to see how much mind control they have on the general public.

People caring about African children because a video says they should. Mind control at it's best

U.S. - US - Americans will send hundreds of millions of $. Soldiers and bombs to hunt and destroy, rebuild with more$$$. and send BILLIONS more.

WHEN does it stop?

Take care of our U.S. - US - Americans

Flame me, ban me, I will NOT watch the video, nor will I return to this or any other thread about it.

These people and the middle east have been doing this for thousands of years, it is their way of life. it will not change.

I smelled something fishy as soon as i saw the vid. It's amazing the backlash that comes off of not supporting this movement on FB etc. It even got some people that i consider very bright. This is what happens when a film is made based off of emotion, and fueled by lies and propaganda in such an extreme state that anyone who doesn't blindly throw money in support is "heartless". Man, it amazes me how much people are falling for this hook line and sinker. To used to believing comfortable lies i suppose.

I was hoping someone would bring that movie up, but no I don't find the timing funny at all. Childers' book came out a while back and even the movie came out months ago. I am sure it was forgotten. Childers should be admired for not sitting back talking, but actually doing something about a situation he found horrible.
