We're neck deep in hypocrisy if you haven't already noticed.
Oh believe me, I have. I just hope other people will come to notice it soon.
I don't think its the actual acts that is the biggest concerning factor of this whole Kony deal. Obviously, its VERY devastating, but come on. We've all heard of children getting abducted, killed and sold into sex slavery. The point of the video is that if we all work together, spreading the word about the ONE guy who is doing this, we can help take him down. He has done this to 30,000 children so if you could simply tweet #stopkony and help spread the word to help stop this you would, wouldn't you? It's something simple that can be stopped, not a whole war that we have been in for ten years. I personally would like the war to end but we can't just pull out all the soldiers and say that's it.
So your understanding is that Kony reads Twitter and if everyone starts tweeting #stopkony, he'll see it and stop?
no, you clearly didnt watch the video. In the video they say that they want the word to spread, especially to high profile celebrities and eventually political figures who can help keep the special unit sent out to capture/kill Kony in Uganda searching for him rather than giving up.
The UN sent a US-trained Special Operations squad to capture/kill him in 2006. None survived. If people send troops, it'll be like Blacl Hawk Down again. They'll be killed and used as war trophies.
.... Did you read the estimated stats of black hawk down over 300 insurgents Kia and only 13 or less us marines Kia-Mia I might be a little off but that is very close I know
It doesn't matter how many insurgents you kill, if a whole squad of Spec Ops gets killed, that's it, the troops are going home.
Yes, but it took the Invisible Children organization nine years of persistant effort to get this much recognition. No one cared two years ago, because no one realIy knew. When I first saw the Invisible Children movie last year (the acual movie, not the Kony 2012 one), I knew next to nothing about Uganda. If people start making a big deal out of the situation in the Middle East, then people will recognize the issue and fight to help those children. You can't blame people for not acting on a situation they didn't know existed.
32% of their profits go to actual helping people. 68% goes to management and salaries. Maybe they shouldn't be getting recognition
You're twisting it to make it sound like they take that 68% and keep it for personal profit. That's not true. Plus your numbers aren't correct.
I'm not saying that the organization is perfect, but at least it's getting people to recognize the problem. And that's what's really important. If people actually know what's going on, they're more likely to do something about it. Anyway, to the best of my knowledge, the organization doesn't claim that it's nonprofit.
You bet I am.
They're different scenarios. We aren't forcing any children in the Middle East to act as our militia for us.
No, it's much better just to kill them outright.
She's right in a way, though. The two are different. I'm certainly not supportive of the U.S. presence in Iraq and the Middle East, but we aren't actively and intentionally killing children. Our nation may have some sketchy reasons for being in the Middle East, but the killing of children is definitely not an intention. War has sucky side effects, both Kony and the U.S. demonstrate that. But I'd say Kony is the greater of the two evils; he knows exactly what he is doing to kids and has no remorse about it. They are incidentally abused and killed, not consequently
Its called collateral. Not saying its right, but it's not us being evil so much as irresponsible
That collateral is someone's child, you fucking piece of shit.
Oh I'm sorry, I must have missed the part where I said "It doesn't matter, It's just collateral damage." I actually thought I said its not right. Sorry if I put off the vibe that I love dead children
There's a definite difference between targeting children and necessary collateral damage.
But thur teerrist kids!!!!1111!!oneone!!
These kinds of things have been going on for so long, I don't get why they're suddenly taking action now.
Better late than never.
But, it seems like, out of no where, people started caring. When I first say it, I was just like "did I miss something...?"
A lot of the info in Invisible Children's video is false. Not to mention that a significant amount of money they get goes to other Militia/military organizations in Uganda who have a history of using child soldiers, and there is high possibility that they still do. Plus most Ugandan nationals don't support Invisible Children or their mission.
Anyway I am gonna go to find more pictures of dead children add to the bullshit drone claims. (Trolol)
Troops are trained to kill anyone who poses a threat to them or their comrades,hundreds of american troops have been killed not firing on children and getting blown up by bombs or I.E.D.'s strapped to them.Its not a matter of morality or ethics its a matter of life and death and whos willing to survive.
are you fucking kidding me? troops dont go out an kill kids. dumbass.
There have been U.S troops that have killed children on purpose and have even kept their fingers as trophies.
Are you sure? Are there really multiple U.S. troops doing that have murdered and mutilated children intentionally? I'm just curious; I want a source.
dont get me wrong, thats terrible. but they're not fucking going out there and doing it on purpose! and there aren't 30000 casualties! and people do care about the kids that happened to be killed, or else there wouldn't be a damn post about it and too many articles to even read in one lifetime. what you state in this post is so manipulated and meant to be taken the wrong way.
Oh, I'm sorry, do you want to be blinded to reality?
It says "drone" right in the caption... it wasn't American soldiers who killed those children.
And who was controlling those drones?
Have you been to the middle east and witnessed these killing?
oh my god I hope you're fucking kidding.
NO THOSE PICTURES OF THE CHILDREN KILLED BY AMERICAN DRONE STRIKES ARE FAKE
IT'S JUST THE COMMUNISTS TRYING TO BRING US DOWN
Im glad you understand. It's crazy how good those guys are with photoshop
My dad was in the army and I've heard all of his war stories. You'd be surprised at what happens out there.
