Default Make Kony Famous

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y4MnpzG5Sqc&nomobile=1
I am sure many of you who have Facebook have seen this video shared, but if you haven't I highly recommend you watch it. Basically in Uganda, children are being kidnapped by a group of rebels who go by the name "Lords resistance army" or LRA, and become sex slaves of they are girls, and the boys are forced to be child soldiers, forced to kill and mutilate, even their own parents. This has been going on for years and most people dont even know of this, or who the culprit is, Joseph Kony. The US government has sent in support, only because awareness was raise and the US citizens cared. But if people start to not care, then te government is going to bring this support home and ruin any chances of arresting Joseph Kony, and freeing the child soldiers and sex slaves. All I, and thousands others ask is that you share this video. Facebook, twitter, other forums, blog etc, anything and everything. 2012 should be the year Kony is stopped! Why should children be forced to kill, and have to live in fear, if they even live at all, just because of where they live. If this happened in the USA, UK or my home country of Australia, this would not be tolerated, yet Kony has gotten away with these horrible crimes for years. Please share for the child soldiers sake!
I have been part of PE2k for nearly 5 years and in that time I hve come to realize what makes it so different from other forums. People care. Please don't let me down.

The U.S is incapable of doing anything at the moment. It is neither of economic interest nor a matter of defense. While I am sure plenty of people are, they simply are unable to do so right now. In case you haven't heard, war might begin with Iran.

That is why they didn't send support 10 years ago. Once the general public wanted this late last year they did. This is just a matter of keeping the support in Africa

Yes, the U.S didn't do it 10 years ago because there was an invasion going on, but nowadays there is nuclear tension in Iran. The U.S has too little money and too little time to do too much foreign aid as of late.

The Kony 2012 campaign is silly. It's for a good cause, but the execution is horrible. Just looking at a poster you might even think they are pro-Kony.

Well, when you have a poster that's an exact mirror of the Obama poster...that can give the wrong message. Same with KONY 2012 for that matter. It just sounds so much like a political campaign for some guy named Kony to be elected as president. >.>

Lol, wonder how many people are going to think that.

My favorite part of it all is how the Ugandan's don't want any help at all and are actually pissed about the whole thing.

I can't be the only one who thinks Kony bears a striking resemblance to Apollo Creed, can I?

'Kony 2012' director hospitalized after exhibiting bizarre behavior

Note: I don't really care about this topic at all. I just happened to be browsing a news site and this site at the same time, and, because I hadn't posted on PE2K in a great while, decided to bring the two subjects of fleeting interest together. I haven't even read the article, and don't know or want to know much about its topic.

Most countries aren't fond of foreign interference in internal affairs.
