(3-08-12) Invisible Children's goals initially may have been to publicize the plight of children caught in Uganda's decades-long conflicts.
Lately, IC has been acting as apologists for General Yoweri K. Museveni's dictatorship and the U.S. goal to impose AFRICOM (the U.S. Africa Military Command) on Africa.
IC has produced a brilliant film that's making the global rounds on Facebook
It's a classic as propaganda pieces come. The short but overwhelmingly powerful film uses all the best tear-jerk techniques.
In the end, the film denounces Joseph Kony, the leader of the brutal Lord's Resistance Army, while giving the impression that Museveni's dictatorship and his brutal military, which was found liable for war crimes in Democratic Republic of Congo by the International Court of Justice, has nothing to do with the atrocities committed against children in Uganda.
It also doesn't inform viewers that Museveni abducted thousands of child soldiers to win his insurgency in Uganda in 1986, launching the pattern of child soldier recruitment all over Africa.
