"President Barack Obama announced a new US intervention in Africa on Friday, deploying around 100 troops to Uganda to assist in suppression of the Lord's Resistance Army. The LRA and its leader, Joseph Kony, have terrorized central Africa for two decades, carrying out civilian massacres and conscripting child soldiers. The area of operations for the LRA, and the US operation, encompasses parts of Uganda, Sudan, the Central African Republic and the Democratic Republic of Congo." (10/16/11)
