    This bill has been long sought after by the people who want to end the terror of Joseph Kony.
    On June 23 over 2000 people from around the country (and at least one kid from Australia) traveled to DC to lobby their senators and congressmen. This was the largest lobbying initiative carried out for an African issue in the history of the United States.
    I hope that you will take the time to write a short email to your representatives asking them to cosponsor this bill if they have not already. It really will make a difference.
    If S1067 is made law, and President Obama carries it through properly, literally millions of lives (including the lives of thousands of children) will be positively affected.
    Joseph Kony’s war has lasted over 23 years, and this bill is How It Ends.

    Waste of money. The people over there need to solve their own problems.

    What happened to the world saying “never again” after the Holocaust, Cambodia, Rwanda? What’s going on over there is sick and disgusting. They are people too, and we have a responsibility to them for that reason alone.
    Uganda and the surrounding regions have tried peace talks for many years but Joseph Kony has no desire for peace. They have tried military operations like Operation Lightning Thunder but they do not have the capabilities that a larger country like the United States has.

    Besides, the money allotted in the bill is a rounding error in the budget of the United States.
    Not to mention, we’re already spending money treating the symptoms of Joseph Kony’s terror. This bill, if passed, will punch out the disease itself. We may actually save money in the long run with the added benefit of not being heartless ignoramuses.

    Really? Human life is a waste of money? So because they aren’t Americans means that we as a country should care less about genocide? Have you ever heard of the holocaust? We are so focused on standard of living here while over there the concern is state of living.
