Troops Sent to Stop Genocide in Africa

President Obama is sending 100 combat-equipped troops to advise African forces on how best to kill or capture Joseph Kony, head of the Lord’s Resistance Army,  a terrorist group which forces children to join and then kill any one opposing their mission of destruction.

Here’s a passage from a 2006 report from Christianity Today on the LRA:

“Under threat of death, LRA child soldiers attack villages, shooting and cutting off people’s lips, ears, hands, feet, or breasts, at times force-feeding the severed body parts to victims’ families. Some cut open the bellies of pregnant women and tear their babies out. Men and women are gang-raped. As a warning to those who might report them to Ugandan authorities, they bore holes in the lips of victims and padlock them shut. Victims are burned alive or beaten to death with machetes and clubs. The murderous task is considered properly executed only when the victim is mutilated beyond recognition.”
