For those paying attention, NPR's broadcast this week about American's in Africa "looking for Kony", was as close to an admission of the real agenda
as we are going to get.
Not that Kony isn't a bad man, but the question is, why now? Even the Ugandans say it is too little too late and it's six years in the past. With the
establishment of Africom, the American Empire is moving in. It appears that Kony 2012 was simply a PR campaign so that the US would have good cover
for whatever they are doing. This has been my suspicion from the beginning, and then this was broadcast on NPR
Months Into Kony Mission, US Action Unclear
Roughly 100 U.S. Special Forces soldiers have divided up and spread out into Central African Republic, as well as to parts of South Sudan and
Congo and Uganda. Their mission: to track down the notorious Kony,
Good excuse to get our special forces guys in there and looking around, perhaps doing some spooking while they are at it only...
it's not yet clear what exactly these U.S. troops are doing, much to the frustration of locals who have long lived in fear of Kony...
CORNISH: So, Sudarsan, I understand that these special forces troops, they can't actually go into the forest and look for Kony themselves, right? I
mean, what are they doing?
RAGHAVAN: That's correct. They have a base in Obo, which is a very small town in southeastern Central African Republic. It's a pretty small base. They
have security cameras on top, razor wire surrounding it. I saw American Special Forces guys with tattooed forearms and sunglasses come in and out. But
in speaking with the residents of Obo, they themselves just wonder what the Americans are doing.
You know, they've yet to see them, you know, in action, so to say. Now, the Americans tell me that their role is purely advisory. They're just
assisting the Ugandans, and it's not their role to actually go in and track Kony down themselves. And to be frank, I mean, it's the regional forces,
Ugandans, who have - you know, they've been hunting this guy for nearly three decades.
So what exactly are they doing then? How much assistance can they be to guys who have 30 years experience tracking this guy? The special forces
advisers may be sharing new tracking technology and better tracking techniques, but I'm positive that's not all they are doing.
As to political reasons why we are there:
there's also a sense that, you know, the Americans want to support the Ugandans.
The Ugandans have been key allies of the United States in counterterrorism, especially in Somalia, where the Ugandans make the bulk of the African
Union Force there that is fighting the al-Qaida-linked militia al-Shabaab, which certainly the United States consider a key threat to its own security
and to regional security. There's also, you know, pressure from human rights groups, like the Invisible Children's video that gained so much attention
over the past few weeks is also adding pressure to find Kony.
But the Ugandans have said it's too little too late. Plus, I like how he throws in the initial psyop at the end as justification for why we had to go
in there and connects it all with All-CIA-duh to boot.
Who's the next guy we are going to go after? Hitler's ghost?
