Default Re: UN Plaza: Ugandan Horrors

Julia hits the nail on the head on many points. As a few actors within the Juba process look to establish some traction on certain aspects of the Agreement on Accountability and Reconciliation it's important to keep both the government and LRA committed to what they have agreed to thus far. This includes the establishment of some sort of truth telling body or similar mechanism to get the justice and reconciliation ball rolling. With that in mind, the Acholi are not the only group to have suffered from LRA attack and UPDF human rights violations. The Teso, Lango and West Nile regions (not to mention those outside of Uganda) are deserving of justice beyond the application of what Acholi traditional mechanisms or international systems can provide. I am not averse to a military solution for the Kony problem, so long as it is sensitive to the children and women still within LRA captivity. I agree with Julia in that the diaspora hidden behind the LRA curtain needs to be identified and held accountable for what has happened over the last 22 years in northern Uganda and for its manipulation of the Juba process. Whether a French special forces operation or something similar is possible in CAR agaisnt the LRA is likely on the table, but reaching a peace settlement with the LRA - or Kony - appears to be over. The LRA are now, much more than before the peace process began, another threat to regional stability.
