I am writing my dissertation on the LRA. He is most likely hanging out in CAR keeping a very low profile, and thanking God for the coup there.

ETA: The LRA have been VERY adept at traversing borders and going where they can be left alone. Kony knows the terrain better than those who are pursuing him, and now that the government of CAR has fallen, Uganda and the US have put the hunt on hold. This seems to be on par for the LRA's behavior in the past; when the heat is on run to an area where government forces have little chance of finding you. They have done the same thing in Sudan and the DRC.

Are you asking about his fate, or why don't we hear anyone talking about him anymore?

I don't know about the first one, but the second one is obvious. Yuppy white liberals realized that they would have to use the same American military they hate so much in order to bring him to justice. Their heads exploded, so they went back to their "Free Mumia" crap.

yeah sorry got confused

blaming hostility towards foreign troops by Central African Republic rebels who seized power last month


it read as though the rebels from CAR seized power in Uganda. I honestly cant keep up with the ever shifting leadership , factions, parties, armies, aid groups. political groups, pirates, missionaries, etc in Africa.

Seriously the entire continent is fucked. just look at all the bullshit happening in the north east with Libya and Egypt. you can look to the north west a region fueled by the infamous "blood diamonds"

Central africa is where this particular rodeo is going down at.

South Africa is getting worse and worse everyday.

My parents are gonna be on safari in Kenya and Tanzania in Sept.........I hope they can avoid any problems.....those countries try to keep the region my parents will be in pretty stable for tourism. Maasai Mara and Serengeti.

I would disagree with you. Sure there are people in the government interested in him, but to say the "administration" is interested is stretching it. Obama sent some troops to train and assist locals hunting for him....only after the viral video, otherwise what else has our govt done to go after him?

That is fairly unlikely. There are a lot of groups in the DRC that compete with the LRA, as well as a rather large UN force and US troops. The LRA have spent quite a bit of time straddling the border of the DRC, but most people believe he has fled deep into the forests of CAR.

Kony is probably in the CAR, but there are probably some elements of the LRA in the DRC. Their command structure allows for a lot of autonomy.

Ok seriously....you got to help me out. I have gone back over that article and I cannot figure why a coup in the CAR would cause a stoppage of the hunt for Kony in Uganda.

the tribal/political/warlord/official govt dynamics of the entire region are throwing me for a loop. I had a pretty frim handle on it about 4 months ago but i have slacked off and now i have completly out dated info.

I was researching about the region because of my parents trip.....they will have Lake Victoria as kind of a buffer between them and this area but its not by much.

Africa has a severe problems with borders. Because the borders were poorly drawn they are tremendously porous and allow for groups like the LRA to cross them at whim, but government troops and foreign troops have to respect those borders. The Ugandan military and the US were operating in CAR at the whim of the previous government, when that government fell the situation changed and it is unclear if the US and Ugandans would be allowed to continue their pursuit. It comes down to sovereignty, rebel groups don't recognize it, but governments do.

Saying that nobody cares is inaccurate. There are parts of our government that does care, I think what you mean to say is that the government does not make them a high priority, which is true. Historically the level of interest by the US in the region and in Kony has been quite a bit higher than in years past.

What would constitute the government caring by your standard. George Bush going to Ugandan and skull fucking Kony to death?

Very much so, it's akin to dealing with the FARC in Colombia.

Also, I assure you, the US has been dealing with this guy since well before the stupid video. Heck, I remember the threads here in GD when Rush Limbaugh was criticizing Obama for targeting a "Christian" grip in Africa, and a small, small few of us tried to set the record straight on the LRA.
