As members of the House introduce a resolution calling for stepped-up efforts to expand regional forces to “protect citizens and pursue LRA commanders” in Uganda as a result of the mass PR campaign pushing war in Africa called KONY 2012, the charity behind it– Invisible Children– is preparing to stir people up in a massive day of action planned for next month.
Under the cryptic sounding name “Cover the Night”, tens of thousands of people are expected to take part in activities calling for the arrest or death of America’s new “Goldstein” known as Joseph Kony, who’s sudden rise in infamy comes coincidentally as America seeks to conquer the resources of Africa and chase the Chinese off the continent. Particular targets in the “Cover the Night” effort will be colleges and schools. Invisible Children and the propaganda media are attempting to convince younger generations that surrendering their future further to national economic decay through wasteful war spending and inevitably slaughtering Africans is “humanitarian” and that dying in some God forsaken jungle in a pointless conflict that has all the potential of being a worse disaster than Vietnam is their duty as citizens of the world.
Joseph Kony, while obviously a brutal warlord no different than other warlords in Africa, hasn’t been seen for years in Uganda and some say he may even be dead. With him as an open-ended target of an invasion effort– like Osama bin Laden was until he was written out of the script when the U.S. government pretended to kill him in 2011– efforts to chase him would easily lead the U.S. military all over Africa and make the continent a giant battlefield to for the West to conquer.
