First of all, we already know about the Iraq war propaganda of Weapons of Mass Destructions (WMD) by George W. Bush, from the US government. We’ve all watched as US troops entered Iraq since 2003, without finding any WMD and almost 10 years later, they’re still in there cleaning up the mess and making money. We all know the US government makes money from war. They do this in multiple ways, there’s the economic wars via(hitmen), creating revolutionary armies to overthrow the governments, and the actual physical wars to “stabilize” the country.
Now we have a documentary propaganda being used on the social media by the same perpetrators, and it has gone viral on the social media all around the world. KONY 2012 – A documentary based on Joseph Kony, the leader of Lord’s Resistance Army, founded in Uganda and have spread to Democratic Republic of Congo, Central African Republic and Sudan. Joseph Kony was a very dangerous man at LRA’s prime, abducting children to be sex slaves and child soldiers, killing anyone who went against him and his group. KONY 2012′s objective was to make Joseph Kony famous through the use of social media’s viral technology, and eventually capturing him by the end of 2012.
But there are a few concerns:
1st Concern: Since 2006, LRA hasn’t been very active, if not, non-active in any killings or abduction of kids. Ugandans haven’t been affected by LRA, and it was a minor concern for the people in Uganda as there are many more problems in Uganda.
2nd Concern: USA has been going to war, mainly for potilical dominance, mineral extractions, and profiting from contracts due to those wars. This KONY 2012 campaign is another propaganda, but using the social media to make Joseph Kony known worldwide. Once Joseph Kony is known and the public is notified of his atrocities, it gives the authorities the power to fully enter Uganda via the public’s consent and knowledge of Joseph Kony’s crimes.
3rd Concern: USA has been lying to their own citizens and public worldwide, about a lot of things. Like September 11, WMD in Iraq, Death of Osama Bin Laden, and other crimes towards third-world countries stated on the Confessions of an, by John Perkins. Why the sudden campaign on Joseph Kony in Uganda, who’s not active anymore since 2006? Why not have a campaign on the dirty works of your own bloody government?! I find it total hypocrisy in this KONY 2012 campaign because of this.
4th Concern: Uganda has it’s mineral reserves, and they’ve just found 2 billion barrels of oil in Uganda just over a year ago. Could thebe using this KONY 2012 propaganda to secure themselves an entry to Africa’s vast mineral-rich land mass, via Uganda?
5th Concern: Joseph Kony alone will not be the only reasons why USA will invade Uganda, there should be other reasons. Therefore, it’s very common for USA to pay rebel forces to overthrow their government (as they’ve done in many countries in the past), to create a civil war. Only then, will USA have a big excuse to invade Uganda to try to stabilize the country.
The whole KONY 2012 campaign cries a loud propaganda tool, to spark the focus on Uganda, and it’s upcoming civil wars created by the. Joseph Kony is only one of it’s future excuse to invade Uganda, they will create more excuses in the future.
