To level with everyone in the community. It may come as a natural responce to whom this man is. And that's ok. So instead, I'll start by sharing this.

Top 10 Most wanted criminals in the world

As you can see. Joseph Kony is known to capture thousands and thousands of children, make them slaves for his army, and turning some of them into Sex slaves.

Still don't know of him? He has been doing this for 20 years. And the simple fact is that no one cares. But this year, in 2012. The world is catching light to this. So how are we going to stop him?

Simple. We make him famous!



The more people know about Kony the better. This man has been doing the absolute worst crimes in human history and no one has cared until now. With little to none military support in Uganda, little awareness by the people of the world, and little to know knowledge of this. This needs to change. And Kony has to be stopped.

Watch the video I linked above. Support the donation drive that is just a few dollars a month. And also keep an eye out for the simple instructions.

This idea. This simple idea. Will not only put a stop to the world's most ignored and wanted criminal. But it will also keep kids safe and have no fear of being kidnapped.

Xeogaming. Let's help out! Let's make Kony famous. Not for praise or anything! If this is successful in 2012. We will have help change the face of human history.

While the man is a monster, I've also read that the group collecting money plans to take him down by force... so, you know... by killing those same children.

it's one thing to take by force and another by AUTHORIZED force and personally I didn't like how Kadafi was handled...that could've been better another way.

I really hate all this about Invisible Children and Kony. A lot of the information presented in their 30 minute video is very much outdated. Kony hasn't even been in the country for the past five years. In turn, Invisible Children is a marketing scheme. You really think that your donation goes to fund help for Uganda? Hah. It lines the founder's pockets for the most part. Only about 30% of the donations goes to the country.

I found this article/blog today. You should read it. Ugandans react with anger to Kony video.

and we all know Aljazeera is a good news source. *smirk*

It's fine it's fine... I'm still a little sour from that group. Mainly because they were the ones to put out the video of the American beheadings.

They are a major news network in that area of the world. It's not like they sponsored them, they just aired it because ratings are ratings. Just like our news stations aired them... they just didn't get the tape first.

And yeah... I forgot the outdated data part.

on top of that... all the journalist from Al Jazeera I ran into in Iraq... are RUDE. You won't believe how many times I had to tell one to get out and quit asking me questions.

'Kony 2012' director suffered 'reactive psychosis,' family says

(CNN) -- Jason Russell, who directed a documentary about a notorious Ugandan warlord that went viral, will remain hospitalized "a number of weeks" to recover from "reactive psychosis," his family said Wednesday.

Russell, 33, was picked up by police last Thursday after several people reported a man running along a San Diego, California, street in his underwear, screaming, sources said.

"Jason's incident was in no way the result of drugs or alcohol in his body," the family statement said. "The preliminary diagnosis he received is called brief reactive psychosis, an acute state brought on by extreme exhaustion, stress and dehydration."

Russell's family said his doctors told them it was "a common experience given the great mental, emotional and physical shock his body has gone through in these last two weeks."

"Even for us, it's hard to understand the sudden transition from relative anonymity to worldwide attention -- both raves and ridicules, in a matter of days," their statement said.

The filmmaker "has a long way to go, but we are confident that he will make a full recovery," his family said.

"He is, and will remain, under hospital care for a number of weeks; and after that, the recovery process could take months before he is fully able to step back into his role with Invisible Children," it said. "During that time, we will focus not on a speedy recovery, but a thorough one."

Russell is one of the founders of the San Diego-based nonprofit group Invisible Children, which produced the half-hour film about warlord Joseph Kony. "Kony 2012" skyrocketed to popularity on YouTube, propelled by thousands of posts on Twitter and Facebook, garnering nearly 85 million views since its March 5 release.

The popularity of the film led to a flurry of media appearances for Russell and his fellow Invisible Children co-founders and prompted scrutiny from some who argued that the social media frenzy was too little, too late.

The group has said it hopes the film and other efforts will make Kony a household name and drum up international support to halt the killings, rapes, abuses and abductions committed by his group, the Lord's Resistance Army, in central Africa.

Kony, who has operated in central Africa for two decades, is wanted for crimes against humanity by the International Criminal Court. In October, the United States sent 100 combat-equipped troops on a mission to kill or capture Kony.

"We thought a few thousand people would see the film, but in less than a week, millions of people around the world saw it. While that attention was great for raising awareness about Joseph Kony, it also brought a lot of attention to Jason -- and, because of how personal the film is, many of the attacks against it were also very personal, and Jason took them very hard," the statement said.

Ben Keesey, the group's chief executive, issued a statement Friday confirming that Russell was hospitalized for "exhaustion, dehydration and malnutrition."

"The past two weeks have taken a severe emotional toll on all of us, Jason especially, and that toll manifested itself in an unfortunate incident yesterday," Keesey said.



Just saying..

This.

I had a large rant on Facebook about this. While I agree to the fullest extent that Kony should be removed from power, I disagree with how this organization is planning on doing so. Not only, as Belial stated above, does only 30% of their profits go towards the country of Uganda, but it funds the Ugandan military. By supporting this group, you're funding a war that will most likely kill the very children that this organization is claiming they wish to save, as Elara stated. It's very controversial. Invisible Children is doing a great job of spreading awareness, but their goal is one that cannot be reached by the means they are going about this.
