Rush Limbaugh Endorses The Lords Resistance Army I dont have a really strong view on whether or not its advisable to dispatch a small number of US combat troops to help fight the Lords Resistance Army. My instinct is to be skeptical. I want to see less military intervention, not more. But Rush Limbaughs instinct is to embrace brutal murderers: Now, up until today, most Americans have never heard of the combat Lords Resistance Army. And here we are at war with them. Have you ever heard of Lords Resistance Army, Dawn? How about you, Brian? Snerdley, have you? You never heard of Lords Resistance Army? Well, proves my contention, most Americans have never heard of it, and here we are at war with them. Lords Resistance Army are Christians. It means God. I was only kidding. Lords Resistance Army are Christians. They are fighting the Muslims in Sudan. And Obama has sent troops, United States troops to remove them from the battlefield, which means kill them. Thats what the lingo means, to help regional forces remove from the battlefield, meaning capture or kill. [...] Lords Resistance Army objectives. I have them here. To remove dictatorship and stop the oppression of our people. Now, again Lords Resistance Army is who Obama sent troops to help nations wipe out. The objectives of the Lords Resistance Army, what theyre trying to accomplish with their military action in these countries is the following: To remove dictatorship and stop the oppression of our people; to fight for the immediate restoration of the competitive multiparty democracy in Uganda; to see an end to gross violation of human rights and dignity of Ugandans; to ensure the restoration of peace and security in Uganda, to ensure unity, sovereignty, and economic prosperity beneficial to all Ugandans, and to bring to an end the repressive policy of deliberate marginalization of groups of people who may not agree with the LRA ideology. Those are the objectives of the group that we are fighting, or who are being fought and we are joining in the effort to remove them from the battlefield. This post is illustrated with a photo of a man who survived a Lords Resistance Army machete attack and has the gashes on his head to prove it. You can read more about it courtesy of Human Rights Watch: LRA forces attacked at least 10 villages, capturing, killing, and abducting hundreds of civilians, including women and children. The vast majority of those killed were adult men, whom LRA combatants first tied up and then hacked to death with machetes or crushed their skulls with axes and heavy wooden sticks. The dead include at least 13 women and 23 children, the youngest a 3-year-old girl who was burned to death. LRA combatants tied some of the victims to trees before crushing their skulls with axes. The LRA also killed those they abducted who walked too slowly or tried to escape. Family members and local authorities later found bodies all along the LRAs 105-kilometer journey through the Makombo area and the small town of Tapili. Witnesses interviewed by Human Rights Watch said that for days and weeks after the attack, this vast area was filled with the stench of death. I think reasonable people can disagree as to whether or not chasing a relatively small band of depraved mass murderers around central africa is a reasonable thing for American military personel to be doing. But lets make no mistakethese are depraved mass murderers. And yet Rush Limbaugh is pleased to welcome them as fellow Christian allies.
