“Shoulda thought of that before people over the last 50 years decided to ignore the warnings.

Clearly we brought this on ourselves through negative thinking.

Kony 2012: Invisible Children Campaign Pressures U.S. Government To Capture Joseph Kony (TAKE ACTION)

“Africa is rich in resources, and once we enter their territory it won't be a "in and out" mission to kill this Kony dude. We'll be chillin over there for decades to make the trip worthwhile by trying to force a democracy onto them and get a large share of natural resources while we're at it.”

“And they don't even give an in-depth historical analysis of the situation. It's just to take down one person while all other African dictators stay in power? That's an odd plan to me...”

Kony 2012: Invisible Children Campaign Pressures U.S. Government To Capture Joseph Kony (TAKE ACTION)

Commented Mar 7, 2012 at 18:21:21 in Impact

“KONY 2012 is the product of a group called Invisible Children, a controversial activist group and not-for-profit. They’ve released 11 films, most with an accompanying bracelet colour (KONY 2012 is fittingly red), all of which focus on Joseph Kony. When we buy merch from them, when we link to their video, when we put up posters linking to their website, we support the organization.

Invisible Children has been condemned time and time again. As a registered not-for-profit, its finances are public. Last year, the organization spent $8,676,614. Only 32% went to direct services (page 6), with much of the rest going to staff salaries, travel and transport, and film production. This is far from ideal for an issue which arguably needs action and aid, not awareness, and Charity Navigator rates their accountability 2/4 stars because they lack an external audit committee. But it goes way deeper than that.

The group is in favour of direct military intervention, and their money supports the Ugandan government’s army and various other military forces. Both the Ugandan army and Sudan People’s Liberation Army are riddled with accusations of rape and looting, but Invisible Children defends them, arguing that the Ugandan army is “better equipped than that of any of the other affected countries”, although Kony is no longer active in Uganda and hasn’t been since 2006 by their own admission.
