    Just found out that the CEO of Invisable Childeren is a good friend of a good friend. It's been interesting watching him defend the group on the news and such. It seems like they are good at what they do (whatever its intended). However, I personally would never donate to a chairity that only gets 30% of their income to the people that need it.

    I don't understand what you guys are moaning about? Its a campaign to raise awareness about the issue and drum up support for keeping advisor's and support for Ugandad troops to fight Kony. Simple...

    The more people who would like this to be the case the more likely it is to stay that way, its just a campaign like every other one before it. To put pressure on your politicians to keep support for Ugandad military, not unreasonable or undoable task.


    Why is everyone so butthurt?

    Do you know a lot about the Ugandan military? Do you really want to supoport it? Do you think it's a good idea to use military means to defeat someone who uses child soldiers to save children? Who do you have to fight?

    Wow, never before seen so many people on MP.net being negative to support a military mission that involves supporting a different countries troops. How controversial, we do this everywhere and have been for ages. What so special about this place that you dont want to supprt the ugandad military with intelligence and what not. Somehow I sense that the specific political action these guys want have completly passed by most people in this forum...

    A mate of mine said this,

    Kony hasn't been active for 6 years. These guys are just looking for money and setting themselves up to siphon money going after other 'international criminals'. What a great racket, taking donations to go after someone that may already be dead. It could be milked for years.

    What? I don't follow US elections. Vote for Kony / 2012, republican, right?

    Joking aside, I guess it is the forum and people running it and not the message. Like and share in facebook to make the world a better place... Yeah, sure... In Africa, there are enough warlords. Put a bullet through the head of Kony and still the mission is far from accomplished.

    Than it appears your friend is wrong. 6 years ago Kony was just forced with his high command out of Uganda but LRA is still very much active in Congo and Central African Republic and yes, even in northen Uganda. After all he killed Ottis when he tried to broke the peace between government and LRA. Anyway support it or ignore it, thats everyone choice however the backslash that campaign took in past few days seems brutal. And as usuall RT is leading the way, accusing director of movie of beeing CIA agent.
