    Obama Sends U.S. Troops to Central Africa to Aid Campaign Against Rebel Group

    WASHINGTON -- President Obama is sending about 100 U.S. troops to central Africa to help local forces battle the Lord's Resistance Army, a rebel group that the administration says has waged a campaign of murder, rape and kidnapping for more than two decades. Obama said Friday the troops will act as advisers in efforts to hunt down rebel leader Joseph Kony but will not engage in combat except in self-defense, according to a letter to Congress that was obtained by Fox News.
    The White House says the first troops arrived in Uganda on Wednesday. Ultimately, they will also deploy in South Sudan, the Central African Republic and Congo.

    For reals? My brother in law is headed there, and I am REALLY worried for him. This screams "Blackhawk down" Redux. WTF ARE WE DOING THERE?
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Maybe while they're there one of them can beat the living hell out of the "witch doctors" who are castrating and murdering children in the name of "good luck and prosperity".

    We've been sending special ops teams to train foreign militaries for decades. Sounds like business as usual to me.

    Good. The Lord's Resistance Army is one of the most disgusting terrorist organizations in the world. We should have helped these countries crush this despicable group a long time ago.
