You can find a reputable account of the LRA's hisoty by visiting the following link. The group Resolve is working with Inivisible Children to help bring much needed peace to those who have been terrorized by the LRA. Hopefully both groups will foucus on Museveni next.History of the LRA
BRING DOWN KONY is a group of human rights activists who are committed to helping stop the LRA wherever it is operating in the world. We are mainly children who want to help other children. We are aware that there are many corrupt governments and dictators in the world and that the U.S. (as well as other countries) has often backed such governments and the corrupt men who run them. We are aware that Museveni is a tyrant and that the Ugandan government and its military have committed many atrocities against the Ugandan people. However, with your help, we plan to change that.

We are not just sheep that blindly follow the heard.
As of July 25, 2012 the hunt for Kony by African Union troops had still yet to be launched. Ugandan Col. Dick Olum spoke to The Associated Press in Ymabio, South Sudan, stating, “We don't yet have the force to start the mission. The problem is logistics, facilitation and personnel.”
Wednesday Uganda's Foreign Minister Okello Oryem said at a meeting of AU and UN officials that there were fears of the LRA taking advantage of the chaos in Eastern Congo and regrouping.
"This matter of the LRA could escalate and become bigger in the region," he warned. "The meeting will look into this and come up with intelligence to be shared with the Americans."
"We don't yet have the force to start the mission," said Olum, whose appointment was announced in February. "The problem is logistics, facilitation and personnel."
President Obama sent 100 troops to Central Africa last year to help regional governments eliminate the LRA, a rebel group that is notorious for forcibly recruiting boys and girls for soldiery and sexual servitude. American forces at this stage are acting as advisers and are not involved with the physical tracking of the rebels. Even though the hunt for the LRA's leader Joseph Kony has intesified in the last several months, Ugandan officials say they lack reliable evidence of his possible whereabouts since he has stopped using electronic communication devices.
There are only about 200 LRA fighters still left throughout a vast swath of jungle in Central Africa, according to Ugandan army officials. The rebels are scattered in small groups in South Sudan, Congo, and the Central African Republic, where Kony himself is thought to be hiding. There is no LRA presence in Uganda where it originated in the 1980s as a rebel movement, officials say.
Olum said most of the LRA rebels are hiding in Congo, where military officials arrested a rebel lieutenant and handed him over to Ugandan authorities last month.
The Congolese government has denied Uganda permission to enter its territory in pursuit of LRA rebels.
