    Always another War to be fought, and Boogeyman to be slain. What a sad Vicious Circle Globalist Foreign Policy.


    NAIROBI, Kenya (AP) -- A top military official says that U.S. troops are now deployed in four central African countries as part of U.S. efforts against a brutal rebel group called the Lord's Resistance Army.

    Rear Adm. Brian L. Losey, the top U.S. special operations commander for Africa, said Wednesday that U.S. troops are now stationed in bases in Uganda, Congo, South Sudan and the Central African Republic.

    The U.S. announced in October it was sending about 100 U.S. troops - mostly special operations forces - to central Africa to advise in the fight against the LRA and its leader Joseph Kony.

    Losey said officials are already seeing a decrease in the lethality of LRA actions, which he thinks is part of the pressure the U.S. and partner countries are applying.

    Yeah, i can believe that. And this group we're supposedly fighting against, is a Christian Group. Our Government has labelled them a 'Terrorist Organization.' Meanwhile the Muslims are committing mass Genocide against Christians all across Africa. So what the Hell is our Government doing? What a mess. Our Foreign Policy is so awful.

    Do you have the slightest notion what "The Lords Army" is all about? Hint: Mother Theresa wouldn't recognize it.

    I don't like the LRA but their capabilites have been declining in recent years, I don't see why we would go into Uganda now, the only thing I can think of is this is some kind of payback for Uganda sending peacekeepers into Somalia on our behalf a few years back.

    Their idea of 'Christianity' is to slaughter men, women and children. It sickens me that you would defend that.

    Ron Paul's supporters live in a 1984 world, where Strength is weakness, peace is war, etc.

    Yea, one of the major issues with Paul, from my perspective, is their exceptionally naive (and dangerous) foreign and international relations policies. Talk about failing to learn the lessons of history.
