US special forces help in hunt for warlord Kony

Obo was the first place in the Central African Republic that Kony’s Lord’s Resistance Army attacked in 2008; today, it’s one of four forward operating locations where U.S. special forces have paired up with local troops and Ugandan soldiers to seek out Kony, who is believed likely to be hiding out in the rugged terrain northwest of the town. For seven years he has been wanted by the International Criminal Court for war crimes and crimes against humanity after his forces cut a wide and bloody swath across several central African nations with rapes, abductions and killings.

    Okay, I’ll say it…

    Who cares?

    We have NO vital interest in Africa as far as I know. There is nothing that adds to our national security. Yes, it sucks that things like this go on in the world. We have other pressing issues though. To hell with that viral video made by some dude that masturbated in public. Seriously? We’re supposed to be serious about this? Come on.

      Zero is just hoping to add another name to his “I got them” list. Probably hopes they will get Kony in time for November.

      • Exactly.

        The only reason Obama has our men over there

        Obama was not paid “protection” money

      5 Seals would have him within a month. And no one would ever know. Ony would just be—disappeared.

      Obama’s just grandstanding again, like a pimp. He’ll keep his shoe will be on the throats of our soldiers.

      Man I’ll be glad when this guy is out of office and under indictment. They indicted Mubarack after he was deposed, didn’t they? This joker and his cousins are not immune
