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.
Good for her-hopefully other celebrities and people of influence with jump on board and get this monster!!

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.

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.
