Kony 2012: the new USA propaganda is an excuse for more foreign intervention in Uganda and Africa

On the Kony Video:

– Again lost in this frenzy is what the actual people of Uganda think about the video.
– Dr Beatrice Mpora, director of Kairos, a community health organisation in Gulu, a town that was once the centre of the rebels’ activities.

“What that video says is totally wrong, and it can cause us more problems than help us. There has not been a single soul from the LRA here since 2006. Now we have peace, people are back in their homes, they are planting their fields, they are starting their businesses. That is what people should help us with.”

– Javie Ssozi, an influential Ugandan blogger.

“Suggesting that the answer is more military action is just wrong. Have they thought of the consequences? Making Kony ‘famous’ could make him stronger. Arguing for more US troops could make him scared, and make him abduct more children, or go on the offensive.”

– Rosebell Kagumire, a Ugandan journalist specialising in peace and conflict reporting.

This paints a picture of Uganda six or seven years ago, that is totally not how it is today. It’s highly irresponsible”.

There’s a rather skeptical view from this BBC correspondent, which raises similar points to this thread.
Joseph Kony campaign under fire

The extraordinarily sudden success, if that is the right word, of the social media campaign by three American advocacy groups aimed at shining a big spotlight on the notorious Ugandan rebel leader Joseph Kony has prompted some scathing reactions from plenty of well-informed quarters. …

The Youtube link to the video in question “Kony 2012” from the NGO “Invisible Children” (38 Million views in 2 days :o):

Saw the story/video earlier in the Guardian. It is interesting that after Obama ordered 100 JSOC troops to go after Kony that 3 months later this video appears and goes viral instantly. Some more of this “Soft Power” approach to US objectives? Some quotes from one of the Guardian stories:

Foreign Affairs magazine has accused the organization of “manipulat[ing] facts for strategic purposes.” Charity Navigator has given Invisible Children a two-star rating in accountability out of a possible four.

Also

Critics point out that the campaign calls on the public to pressure the US to continue working with the Ugandan military, an organisation that has its own record of abuses. “The Ugandan army continues to commit politically motivated abuses in Uganda,” Maria Burnett, senior researcher with Human Rights Watch, Africa Division, told the Guardian.

“We have documented numerous cases in which they’ve been involved in torture and arbitrary arrests, as well as a score of killings of unarmed protesters and bystanders during political demonstrations in the past three years.”

Of course this sudden interest in Kony (after 20 years of the LRA operating with impunity) has nothing to do with 2-6 Billion barrels of oil discovered in the Lake Albert basin in 2006. Production was set to begin in 2013 on the field but due to it being close to Kony’s stronghold it was pushed back to 2015. Did I mention that the Albert basin’s oil is owned through a Production Sharing Agreement (PSA) by British oil company Tullow Oil and US firm ExxonMobil? Also if you have the time read some Wikileaks cables on Uganda corruption and ExxonMobil.

The Kony video is a fraud…we know it is simply because so many people have seen it or been made to. When real truth videos have troube racking up their first million, this one seems to have been gifted a superhighway into the hearts of the voting public

Not eveyone has been fooled though

AMERICUNT NOW IS LIKE THE WILD WILD WEST CALVARY WHERE THEY KILL THE NATIVE RED INDIANS N STOLE THEIR LAND N LATER BROUGHT IN AFRICAN SLAVES TO FARM THE STOLEN LANDS, SIMILAR TO ZIONIST N SIGN A PACK CALLED AIPAC.

NOT LIKE RABBI WEISS OR MORMONS. THESE ARE GOOD HUMAN.

  3. this video is a scam to collect donations for child soldiers. lra kony is a small group with about 500 troops. 100 usa troops being send to uganda to recce or intelligence gathering IS to INVADE UGANDA FOR HER OIL. BE CAREFUL, ANY COUNTRY WITH OIL WILL BE VICTIM OF AMERICANT, LIKE SOMALIA. THEY STEAL THE OIL TO SAVE THEIR BANKRUPT ECONOMY. DESPERATE BANDIDOS.
