Fact check: “Kony’s War in Uganda” Cover the Night (Make Kony Famous 2012) Worldwide 1) Kony is not in Uganda (the Kony 2012 video did not make this clear) 2) The LRA is only calculated as a couple 100 people, the majority of armed violence comes from other warring factions. Even with the removal of Kony there is still the potential of the LRA people resorting to joining other armed groups. 3) Most crucial problem that needs to be addressed is a crisis of governance that has forced many people to form their own private militias More Fact checks can be found here: http://blog.foreignpolicy.com/posts/2012/03/07/guest_post_joseph_kony_is_not_in_uganda_and_other_complicated_things and a strategic overview of US role in LRA conflict can be found here: http://www.foreignaffairs.com/articles/136673/mareike-schomerus-tim-allen-and-koen-vlassenroot/obama-takes-on-the-lra I will say that bringing Kony to justice at the ICC should be a global goal, however I am simply curious about what would be the most adequate action. Efforts directed towards more troops in Africa? Directing troops to protect civilians first and foremost? Encouraging local governments to allow more participation of their citizens? Full of questions and looking for answers. As always, eager for more input and discussion about this topic.
