    How terrible of the President to send 100 troops to help children not to be kidnapped and turned into soldiers and sex slaves..........
    "A White House announcement said the troops will be combat-equipped but are not to engage in combat except in self-defense. It said they'll aid in removing LRA leader Joseph Kony "from the battlefield."
    The administration and human rights groups have charged the LRA with seizing children to bolster its ranks of soldiers, and sometimes forcing them to become sex slaves."

    More information:
    Since 1988 the group has been led by Joseph Kony, a fifty-something former Catholic altar boy who apparently believes himself to be a spiritual medium and a spokesperson for God.
    If so, then it's a violent god he serves: the LRA has long been hammered by the United Nations for its reliance on child soldiers; and the actions those young troops commit include mutilation and the sexual enslavement of women.
    Kony was indicted in 2005 by the International Criminal Court on 33 charges of war crimes and crimes against humanity. He has so far evaded arrest, however. The US government lists the LRA as a terrorist organization.

    For the record, the Lord's Resistance Army is pretty fucking horrible, as Industrialsize pointed out. While the Ugandan government isn't exactly made up of angels, the Lord's Resistance Army is made up of villains who slaughter parents and capture their children as slaves. They say they're fighting against dictatorship and oppression, but their alternative seems to be theocracy and even more oppression.
