Apparently deciding one ongoing, undeclared war was not enough, our president of peace has committed 100 U.S. soldiers to central Africa to fight the Lordâ€™s Resistance Army (LRA). That announcement came Friday, two days after deployment. In a letter to House Speaker John Boehner on Friday, Barack Obama wrote â€œthe U.S. forces are combat-equipped,â€ but â€” not to worry â€” â€œthey will only be providing information, advice, and assistance to partner nation forces, and they will not themselves engage LRA forces unless necessary for self-defense.â€ The president asserted that his action was taken in â€œfurtherance of the Congressâ€™s stated policy,â€ citing the LRA Disarmament and Northern Uganda Recovery Act of 2009, which encourages greater â€œmilitaryâ€ cooperation to defeat the LRA. However, he concluded, â€œI have directed this deployment, which is in the national security and foreign policy interests of the United States, pursuant to my constitutional authority to conduct U.S. foreign relations and as Commander in Chief and Chief Executive.â€ This has some questioning whether this is a second war-by-decree, following the still-simmering conflict in Libya.
Ironically, Obama closed the letter, â€œI am making this report as part of my efforts to keep the Congress fully informed, consistent with the War Powers Resolutionâ€ â€” an act he is currently violating in Libya.
No, the intervention does not mean Obama is actively targeting Christians for death â€” although we already did that in our intervention to subject Christian Serbia to the tender mercies of Muslim Kosovars. However, some find the hand of George Sorosâ€™ internationalists behind the intervention. Aaron Klein at WND.com notes:
In April 2010 Sorosâ€™ International Crisis Group, or ICG, released a report sent to the White House and key lawmakers advising the U.S. military run special operations in Uganda to seek Konyâ€™s captureâ€¦
Soros sits in the ICGâ€™s executive board along with Samuel Berger, Bill Clintonâ€™s former national security advisor; George J. Mitchell, former U.S. Senate Majority Leader who served as a Mideast envoy to both Obama and President Bush; and Javier Solana, a socialist activist who is NATOâ€™s former secretary-general as well as the former foreign affairs minister of Spain.
Jimmy Carterâ€˜s national security advisor, Zbigniew Brzezinski, is the ICGâ€™s senior advisor.
The ICGâ€™s president emeritus is Gareth Evans, who, together with activist Ramesh Thakur, is the original founder of the Responsibility to Protect doctrine, with the duo even coining the term â€œresponsibility to protect.â€
The Lordâ€™s Resistance Army is one of the purest forms of concentrated evil on the planet. Led by Joseph Kony, who has been â€œpossessedâ€ by â€œspiritsâ€ multiple times a day for decades, the LRA has placed itself at the service of its leaderâ€™s violent visions. The LRA has kidnapped an estimated 65,000 children from central African homes, impressing them into his army as child soldiers, mutilators, or sex slaves as part of his 23-year campaign of terror. Much of its brunt has been borne by Christians.
When did Soros become so humanitarian? Klein has a hunch itâ€™s all about getting his hands on Ugandaâ€™s oil located in the nationâ€™s Lake Albert basin.

I was busy today when Obama came on with his announcement about finally doing what he said he would before he was elected - pulling troops out of Iraq.Â Did you watch?Â Did he happen to mention this new war he started?
