    I Want to Help Expose KONY
    as an Evil Bastard

    TMZ has learned ... Rihanna has reached out to the Invisible Children organization and has expressed an interest in creating a video to help raise awareness about an evil S.O.B. named Joseph Kony.

    Kony is quickly becoming a household name ... thanks to a viral YouTube video that exposes the Ugandan warlord as the bloodthirsty leader of a child army and child prostitution ring.

    The future has many names: for the fearful it's the unknown, for the reckless it's the adventure, for the pessimists it's the unattainable. For the brave, it is opportunity.

    Its going around the world, People are responding. It's gonna be interesting if they can accomplish this goal. If they succeed at this, then what else can we use Facebook, Youtube, and Twitter for?

    Seems obvious the intentions are good. There's also this:

    The Problems with 'Stop Kony' (atlanticwire.com)

    The Guardian had this to say: Kony 2012: what's the real story?

    Lots of other links, at the links above. Instructive. It would quite probably all boil down to this of course:

    And is [KONY filmmaker] Jason Russell scared to come out and admit that effective action entails an old-fashioned boots-on-soil invasion of a landlocked African country, with all the collateral damage that this implies?

    Yeah. The holocaust needed some boots on soil, too. I think it was the right thing to do.

    I think President Obama's having sent 100 troops in an advisory capacity (always risky: see Vietnam) to Uganda for the express purpose of aiding efforts to capture and kill Kony was a good thing. But he's evidently moved out of Uganda, to the north.
