On Friday, the Obama Administration announced that they will be sending about 100 U.S forces to Uganda and African Union Forces fighting Kony and his Lord's Resistance Army (LRA).

The troops will give professional advise and training to the Ugandan troops that are working hard in bringing the LRA leader to book. President Obama in his notification added that he had sent an advance team on Oct 12 and others will follow in a months time.

"For more than two decades, the Lord's Resistance Army (LRA) has murdered, raped, and kidnapped tens of thousands of men, women, and children in central Africa," Obama said in the letter. "In furtherance of the Congress's stated policy, I have authorized a small number of combat-equipped U.S. forces to deploy to central Africa to provide assistance to regional forces that are working toward the removal of [LRA commander] Joseph Kony from the battlefield."

Reacting to this one blogger commented that; "Here we go again. Sticking our noses into another countries #$%$ We are not baby sitters. We are not the worlds nurses. Countries are born, Countries die. Lets fix our problems before we go and try to fix others. We have our own problems. Do you see any other country coming in to help us? We have almost been bankrupt, we have our war on drugs, unemployment, the uneducated, poverty. A country that goes around bragging that we are top dog and has homeless, those without food, addicts ,alcoholics, kids wondering the streets does not have room to do this."

One of the responses to the above comment was; "Have you ever heard what happens in the LRA? Somebody needs to stop it, and finally a President is making a move to do it. We should care about all lives not just American lives."
