Danny, the key word was "yet". How has he threatened us? I don't think he's the greatest guy, but also don't think he poses any sort of threat to the USA, so why must we kill him now?

A local charity, the African Youth Initiative Network, thought that the communities worst affected by the LRA, when it operated in Uganda, also deserved an opportunity to see what all the fuss was about, and so organized the event.

It was heavily publicized on local radio stations, and a crowd of thousands turned up at the Mayor’s Gardens in the centre of Lira for the sunset screening.

Having heard so many great things about the film, the crowd’s expectations were high.

People I spoke to anticipated seeing a video that showed the world the terrible atrocities that they had suffered during the conflict, and the ongoing struggles they still face trying to rebuild their lives after two lost decades.

The audience was at first puzzled to see the narrative lead by an American man – Jason Russell – and his young son.

Towards the end of the film, the mood turned more to anger at what many people saw as a foreign, inaccurate account that belittled and commercialised their suffering, as the film promotes Kony bracelets and other fundraising merchandise, with the aim of making Kony infamous.

One woman I spoke to made the comparison of selling Osama Bin Laden paraphernalia post 9/11 – likely to be highly offensive to many Americans, however well intentioned the campaign behind it.

The event ended with the angrier members of the audience throwing rocks and shouting abusive criticism, as the rest fled for safety, leaving an abandoned projector, with organisers and the press running for cover until the dust settled.
Uganda is telling you not to do them any favors, and here we are saying "Oh! But you don't know how much you need our help! And is it so bad if we take a little oil while we're there too? It's a win-win, right?"

Rudyard Kipling called. He wants his Burden back.

Barber Shops

Not a man here, but as a reasonably attractive young woman I worked in the office of a barber school and I always felt uncomfortable walking through the barber shop to the office in the back. Of course, I knew for sure that many of the students were drug dealers and paranoid about the cutting edge clock-in system that used their fingerprints, so I had reason to feel on edge. Which is to say even as a woman, I know a bit how Keith feels when he walks in to a barber shop.

I think Keith just feels like there's always gonna be a fight.

I've been outside. Only twice in all my years out past highschool have I felt like I might have to fight. Maybe don't go into black barbershops as a white guy with a shaved head?

I believe this depends entirely on where you live, how often you go out, and if you're one of those people who honestly believe that it "takes more courage not to fight."

Those things could color your opinion quite a bit.

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.

We KNOW where most of their funding is coming from. These guys are fucking WARLORDS. They're running drugs and human/sex trafficking. A lot of their funds come from intercepting humanitarian aid meant for the very people they're exploiting. The governments of these countries are corrupt/paid off/ threatened into submission. When they want to feed their private armies they just take shit from people and if they resist, they kill 'em.

It's a pretty complex problem without simple answers (sorry Keith)

Really? Your explanation seemed pretty simple. (You're forgiven.)
