Invisible Children’s plan to rage war in Africa is going ahead as promoted

Going after Joseph Kony militarily is an objective that the American charity Invisible Children has being pursuing for a number of years.

That could be understandable if the root cause of the Ugandan rebel issue – Museveni dictatorship, was also being addressed.

Nobody denies that Kony, the Ugandan rebel leader, was a bad guy but presently he is becoming a pretext for US intervention in South Sudan, Uganda, Central African Republic, and Democratic Republic of Congo.

Once a justification for military intervention was clearly defined and promoted as such, the time of action is now.

Kony 2012 was launched last month. Today [24/4/12] the Invisible Children’s video has been watched by more than 100 million people around the world.

Presently, US and international opinions are significantly prepared psychologically to accept another war between Sudan and South Sudan under the dubious allegations that Joseph Kony is the worse enemy to be tracked and killed in Africa.

According to The Monitor, Advocates Coalition for Development and Environment (ACODE) and the US International Development Association (IDA) organised recently a two-day security conference in Kampala to discuss fragility of the security situation in the Horn of Africa.

Since the end of the 80s, Museveni’s country has been considered by US administration of both democrats and republicans as a safeguard frontier to contain Sudan fundamentalism and more recently Muslim extremist from Al Shabbab of Somalia.

After Kony 2012 campaign it does not surprise anyone that the next step is to get ready for war, with manipulation of information as much as possible and without any care for human casualties that it may cause. This has been the case in the region for almost three decades.

The international community should not be fooled by Kony 2012. US and other Western countries have economic interests, especially strategic resources to protect against Chinese and other emerging countries. The former want to continue accessing them at the cheap.

Real sons and daughters of Africa and well intentioned people around the world should rise up and voice their dismay at the continuous military interventions of the US [particularly through its Africom strategy] and their Western allies in African affairs under the cover-up of humanitarism.

    Fight war with war? The issues are complex, Invisble Children don’t get it. If they get Kony there will be someone to replace him until the main problems are fixed.
