Prosecute all of them

There was me a couple of weeks ago reporting that Kony and his Lord's Resistance Army was heading west for the Central African Republic and the news now coming out of the area is of his shenanigans in Sudan's, Western Equatoria State, where he has shot a wildlife officer and abducted some civilians.(1) Now, the evidence would seem to suggest that Kony is not quite the full shilling, however, why this obsession with him? A reported massacre of some five hundred was attributed to the LRA around Christmas but with the forces on the ground who are supposedly pursuing them one has to wonder and with the Ugandan, Congolese and South Sudanese forces pursuing him, why can they not catch him? It would appear that all of the parties involved are playing nasty litte games of their own.
Kony does belong behind bars but so too do Laurent Nkunda, Bosco Ntaganda and, yes, an array of Presidents including, Francois Bozize of the Central African Republic, Uganda's Musevevni and Rwanda's Paul Kagame. However, with their powerful political backers we are even more unlikely of seeing them in the Hague than we are to see Kony there. In the meantime the "pursuit" of Kony will also help the world to look away from what they and their masters in Washington and Paris are actually doing. All of them in a cell in the Hague where they bump into Bush, Cheney and the zany Zionists; what a wonderful thought!
The book pictured above is recommend reading
