KONY 2012 is a film and campaign by Invisible Children that aims to make Joseph Kony famous, not to celebrate him, but to raise support for his arrest and set a precedent for international justice.

Really pleased to see it getting attention lately. Its a fine line with these causes to draw people to action without overwhelming their audience. Hope they succeed.

This kind of "warfare" has been used by warlords/dictators for at least the last 30 years. Odd that there is a big uproar about it all of a sudden.

Not really odd at all some of the most important minerals for electronics etc found there in enormous deposits.

Oh and many natives state Kony is long dead.

Actually he is supposed to have fled to Egypt back in 2006. This does make you wonder why this particular piece of propaganda has been released now unless it has something to do with them finding oil there.

After the Iraq war, its not hard to see that as a possibility, but the current political climate against interventionism seems at an all time high.
