As you can see in super hero movies always the “good” wins the “evil.” Like a super hero movie in Uganda the UN and Uganda army are fighting with the “evil army” called the Lord’s Resistance Army. They’re fighting because in Uganda this Kony guy, who is the leader of the LRA, wanted to overthrow the government so he could claim all the power. However that isn’t the only bad decision he made that lead the UN to send there soldiers. He ordered his soldiers to go to little villages in Uganda and capture all the children. Then they used the boys as the soldier and the girl’s as a sex slave. Thats why there is a fight against this two forces. But recently one of the Kony’s man was captured by the Uganda army.
Why would Kony think of using child soldier to start a rebel? Don’t Kony has his own child? This was the two and only question I had while reading this article, so after I read the article I searched how many child does Kony have. And I figured out that he has 42 child at 2006. Won’t he know the pain of the parents if there child is taken away for a war? But then why would he still be using child soldier. That is the question I still don’t understand. By the way the reason I had this question is because I thought about normal parents. They all love they’re own child, but even though Kony is a parent he still uses child soldiers. And this article is important that every one reads. Because everyone should know that there is a human violation that is not being followed. Also so more people can support the UN and the Uganda army.
If I was a soldier inside the LRA, I would be gathering the children who wants to overthrow against Kony. Than help the UN locate where Kony is hiding so the UN can capture Kony. However right now there is no sign of any rebel inside of the LRA so it won’t happen. And because there is no rebels that is going to happen in LRA the UN and the Uganda army should capture Kony as fast as they can. But to make this process faster the wealthy countries should help the UN with weapons or funds. Or maybe we could donate money to the UN so we could fasten the process of capturing Kony.
