Death And Destruction In Uganda-Anyone Care?

During the past decade the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA) has carved a path of death and destruction through the nation of Uganda including kidnapping thousands of children and making them soldiers in an army that frequently as part of an initiation ceremony compels children to kill their own parents. The Uganda government reports the LRA has murdered 537 people and kidnapped 408 others in their latest violent attacks. About 104,000 people have been forced to flee for their lives. Ron Redmond, the UN Commissioner for Refugees, says, “amy f these internally displaced people are still hiding in the bush” fearing the LRA will either kill them or take their children.

There are no reports of mass demonstrations in any European, Middle Eastern or Asian city over the mass slaughter of Ugandans. One can only assume their deaths don’t rate the 6:00 p.m. news. I wonder why?s

    I hope people read your work. It is about time the world awoke to issues of mass slaughter of the innocent.
