Congress is introducing legislation to authorize MORE regional forces for Africa on humanitarian grounds, opening up a larger AFRICOM invasion of the continent closely on the heels of the viral KONY 2012 video. Hope all you trendies are happy now. War is Peace!
From CBS News:
Two House lawmakers on Tuesday introduced a resolution supporting efforts to counter the Lord’s Resistance Army, hoping to build on the momentum created by a viral YouTube video spotlighting the atrocities of LRA leader Joseph Kony.
The resolution, introduced by Reps. Jim McGovern, D-Mass. and Ed Royce, R-Calif., calls for, among other things, expanding the number of regional forces in Africa to protect civilians and placing restrictions on individuals or governments found to be supporting Kony.
