Credit President Obama for initiating the disarmament of the Lords Resistance Army (LRA) and the Uganda Recovery Act, a year ago. It is surly time to put an end to leader Joseph Kony and the LAR. Kony reign of terror has lasted over 25 years now.
This ruthless militia directs its violence towards civilians and attacks local communities—massacring innocent people, razing villages, and abducting children and forcing them to serve as soldiers, porters, and sex slaves. With Kony leadership slipping and splintering in the LAR, and they are reportedly at their weakest, is 100 troops enough? Now is the time to eradicate the festering disease know as the LRA. President Obama needs to step up the game and put an end to the sadistic genocide in South Sudan, Congo and the Central African Republic.
It has been almost 20 years since American troop pulled out of the region, shortly after the Black Hawk down incident, in 1993. Now if finally looks as though there may be an end. So I have to ask, in those 18 years where was the outrage from the African-American leadership, the likes of Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson. they did get quite infuriated about a radio personality making a remark about a young woman’s hair. You can bet if this was happening in Israel or Europe, we would be in an all-out war. If there would had been a stronger out cry from all Americans years ago, decades ago, there would have been a lot less innocent people dead today.
Now with the onset of the disarmament of the LAR, some say war is never the answer, and I agree, war only bring on more war and the death of more innocent victims. However, many more innocent people will continue to die if we don’t end the genocide NOW!
