    I realise that this post will probably draw reactions suggesting a conspiratorial stance here, but I would like to raise the question. Is Kony 2012 going to be the usual humanistic justification for war crimes so that the pattern which has taken place over the last 50+ years can repeat: "problem", "solution", Peace (war), oil (found in Uganda), "Democracy".

    Even you liberal/ left studenty types know that the big 3 parties lack any moral credibility. You must already know this surely with phoney wars, lies, scaremongering, targeting of people with different ideas etc. UKIP and BNP are the only parties that will give Britain a chance. And political correctness needs to go to give Britain a chance.

    Interesting point, but I thought it was just a charity campaign that went viral on the internet? I didn't think the Government were particularly interested in it. Maybe I'm wrong though.

    The the military industrial complex has little to gain from the western powers trying to capture Kony. USA could do it in a few months with a commitment of some SF and SOF units+air and support assets. It wouldn't be expensive or challenging.

    The issue regarding Kony is, nobody cares enough to commit the forces needed. Plus I doubt the Congo, despite having a UN mission already there, would be thrilled about US forces operating in their jungles. CAD and South Sudan would likely be more welcoming, but I have doubts about DRoC.

    I agree. The BNP are fascists thugs; UKIP are real Conservatives, unlike the Tories who aren't Eurosceptic or fiscally Conservative enough.
