So Obama Did Listen to Rev. Wright

President Obama has sent 100 soldiers to Uganda to capture or assassinate Joseph Kony and other senior leader of the LRA. The LRA or Lord’s Resistance Army are Christians fighting Muslims in Africa. Not really. The LRA has been terrorizing portions of Africa for over 20 years.

Two questions:

  1. Why is Obama sending troops to Africa now? The first request for assistance was made to Obama in November 2010.
  2. Is assassination now the official foreign policy of this administration: who else is on the list of 20?

The motives of the president are unknown. This could be another attempt to test Congress to see how far he can usurp Constitutional power from the legislative branch. It could be a means of generating another crisis to distract attention from Iran, Occupation or economic collapse. Whatever the reasons, this president is in open rebellion against the Constitution.

Obama Sends 100 US Troops to Uganda to Help Combat Lord’s Resistance Army

Two days ago President Obama authorized the deployment to Uganda of approximately 100 combat-equipped U.S. forces to help regional forces “remove from the battlefield” – meaning capture or kill – Lord’s Resistance Army leader Joseph Kony and senior leaders of the LRA.

The forces will deploy beginning with a small group and grow over the next  month to 100. They will ultimately go to Uganda, South Sudan, the Central African Republic, and the Democratic Republic of the Congo, with the permission of those countries.

The president made this announcement in a letter to House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, Friday afternoon, saying that “deploying these U.S. Armed Forces furthers U.S. national security interests and foreign policy and will be a significant contribution toward counter-LRA efforts in central Africa.”

He said that “although the U.S. forces are combat-equipped, they will only be providing information, advice, and assistance to partner nation forces, and they will not themselves engage LRA forces unless necessary for self-defense.”
