I think the point here is that this man enslaved and made into killers over thirty thousand children who will NEVER get their lives back, and many
more thousands were slaughtered and mutilated. Perhaps we can all turn a jaundiced eye to it because "he's been doing it for thirty years." When in
fact he shouldn't have been able to do it for one year. But because it is Africa, who gives a #? Am I right or am I right? Wink! Well one guy seems
to care and he's put his life on the line. The kids Kony tried to destroy care and they came here to tell us it needed to be stopped. And guess what
the President thought it was worth the effort to send trainers over there. And guess what else? Kony just moved his operations to the Sudan and
elsewhere, where he continues to slaughter innocents. So you know what, HE NEEDS TO BE STOPPED. And people like him on that list of criminals, people
like G.W. Bush and Dick "Heartless" Cheney also NEED TO BE STOPPED. It's not about oil. It's about human life and dignity. I am appalled at the
attitudes on this thread. Trying to make those who just made the Kony doc go viral, feel like suckers...by using a "quote" from some supposed
"Ugandan" who is saying "Oh it was all over years ago, no one cares...give us some money now!" It's this sort of attitude that makes the Kony's
of this world become more and more bold.
I don't even know where to begin with this.....
OK....30,000 kids huh....that seems to be the answer given like a nervous twitch by all who were seducd by the movies guilt trip....tell me....where
do these figures come from?
Next; No one is turning a blind eye to this.....to be perfectly honest, all you people who had never heard of Kony before two days ago are the ones
who were turning a blind eye to it for DECADES!! Now that you feel infromed somehow, you already know the answer is to invade Uganda and take him
out?? Well that won't really work for many reasons, but the most obvious being what you said in your own words;
"And guess what else? Kony just moved his operations to the Sudan and elsewhere, where he continues to slaughter innocents."
EXACTLEY....Kony is not even in Uganda....so are you saying to follow this documentaries (invisible childrens) lead and send money to give weapons to
the Ugandan Army (an extremely corrupted military force itself, with much blood on its hands including raping, and murdering children just like Kony
has) and then creating a war that crosses borders in an area of Africa that has seen enough war to last this planet it's whole life????
In other words endorsing the idea of spreading a regional conflict into a multi-state conflict?
You know who benefits from all of that bloodshed?? Weapons manufacturers for one, that is just obvious....the real reason for a Ughandan intervention
is something you also said, knowingly or unknowingly.....OIL, but more specificially grabbing up resources that are dwindling, or so we are told
Again tell me about this wonderful plan to stop Kony by meeting violence with more violence and how it really helps the problem....
Now allow me to play your little wordsmith game....
He has an army of 30,000 brainwashed mindless children used to protect him.....How does our military apparatus, or any military get to him, without
first mowing down thousands of those same children you claim to be freeing or redeeming and fighting for??
Please stop trying to flip the facts to suite your argument and answer some of tese really plausible scenarios I am suggesting here....or do you and
the producers of the film have a better answer to all of this we are not aware of that will spare all those innocent brainwashed kids willing to fight
I see you have reverte to saying that those of us with the brain power to question the motives, are simply appeasing Kony and future maniacs like him,
when in reality the appeasement was given to him by years of all you who are now outraged turning a deaf ear for decades to these kinds of
I did agree with one point of yours though.....your Bush's, your Cheney's (you left out your Obama's....probably a democrat) are all scourge like
Kony who must be dealt with in similar fashions.....Tell you what, why don't us Americans take care of the International Criminals in our own
country, and let the Ugandans, or Sudanese deal with theirs....it will be much more cost effective, not to mention rational....
But I guess what do people who get told their personal agendas from youtube videos spread like a virus on facebook know about reason and
rational....it seems most only hear "Now is the time to push" and in unison the voices of the blind and deaf shout "PUSH....NOW"
Please, learn to use that god given muscle in between your ears, it works so much better as a tool of intelligence and free thinking instead of as a
rhetoric and propaganda loudspeaker....
