The Lord's Resistance Army

Late last year the President ordered a small contingent of military advisers to Uganda and other central African countries to help local officials find and destroy a group that calls itself The Lord's Resistance Army.

Many conservative leaders used this to prove that President Obama was declaring war on Christians thus proving their point that he was a closet Muslim and Arab Terrorist. After all The Lord's Resistance Army was fighting Muslims in the Sudan and other counties.

The leader of the Republican Party (Rush Limbaugh) said this about the Presidents decision;

Lord's Resistance Army are Christians. It means God. I was only kidding. Lord's 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. That's what the lingo means, "to help regional forces remove from the battlefield," meaning capture or kill.

So that's a new war, a hundred troops to wipe out Christians in Sudan, Uganda, and -- (interruption) no, I'm not kidding. Jacob Tapper just reported it. Now, are we gonna help the Egyptians wipe out the Christians? Wouldn't you say that we are? I mean the Coptic Christians are being wiped out, but it wasn't just Obama that supported that. The conservative intelligentsia thought it was an outbreak of democracy. Now they've done a 180 on that, but they forgot that they supported it in the first place. Now they're criticizing it.

Lord's Resistance Army objectives. I have them here. "To remove dictatorship and stop the oppression of our people." Now, again Lord's Resistance Army is who Obama sent troops to help nations wipe out. The objectives of the Lord's Resistance Army, what they're 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.

The Lord's Resistance Army actually does the following"
  • Kidnaps young girls and forces them into sexual slavery
  • Kidnaps young boys and turns them into to child soldiers
  • They force these young boys to rape the women in their families, torture and murder their own fathers and perform other acts of violence and terror against their own villages and people
  • They pillage and burn the villages that offers up any resistance to their efforts. They are thieves, pretty criminals and brutal thugs
They do all this in the name of The Prince of Peace and promise to govern the lands they occupy via their understanding of the Ten Commandments.

These terrorist are not by any stretch of the imagination Christian but the American right wing jumped to their defense in their blind and irrational hatred of anything and everything Barack Obama does. To be fair when they were told by their assistants about the true nature of The Lord's Resistance Army many quickly back tracked. They didn't apologize the just said "never mind"
