I'm feeling a vibe of more and more resentment here in Africa towards the West for things like this. You can actually get shirts with Gaddafi's face on them here because he has become a sort of martyr. Most people here feel certain individuals are being targeted to further some underlying agenda. I'm not saying Kony isn't a douche, he is... but this whole exercise feels futile and it's probably going to actually gain him popularity if he becomes the next "bad guy" to go after. I'm not saying it makes sense, I just know very little good will come of it.

A friend of mine made a good point today, don't target these individuals. Instead find out where their funding and weapons are coming from and try tackling that for a start.
