You know just about the time I think that things have gotten as stupid as they could get – President Barack Hussein Obama moves the stupid goal posts.  Uganda.  You have to be kidding me. 

I guess that Obama must have thought that after Libya he isn’t a rookie any more.  He states in a letter to Congress (at least he remembered this time) that a deployment of US combat troops to Uganda “is in the national security and foreign policy interests of the United States.”  Bulls**t.  I guess that we were too busy getting Obamacare rammed up our fourth point of contact that we missed this one.  Anyone recall a rose garden signing ceremony in May 2010? 

The Lord’s Resistance Army Disarmament and Northern Uganda Recovery Act of 2009, Public Law 111-72 passed in May of 2010 and was signed eight days later.  You can read it here:

I haven’t heard of the Lord’s Resistance Army before and they haven’t ever bothered anyone I know.  I guess we had to send the US Armed Forces to Uganda to chase a few thousand (estimates range between 500 and 9,000) African hoodlums because the 8,000 to 10,000 members of Mara Salvatrucha (MS13) in the United States are too close to home.  Or maybe Barack is warming us up to fight the very real war on our borders with the Sinaloa and Los Zetas Drug Cartels. 

Arizona, Texas, and Alabama can’t get any help from the Federal government but the far off, land-locked nation of Uganda got the President’s attention on a Friday afternoon at the end of the week’s news cycle.  Apparently our new pal in the world is Yoweri Kaguta Museveni the President of what purports to be a Democratic Republic of Uganda.  Does this have something to do with Uganda being a neighbor of Kenya?  Is Barack concerned about his half-brother next door? 

Don’t worry, the Congressional Budget Office figures that this will only cost us around $28,000,000.00.  That’s about a dime for every man, woman, and child in America.  Looked at from another angle, it’s only one nineteenth of a Solyndra. 

Where the hell is Code Pink when you need them?  Uganda . . . . .for crying out loud, what next? 


  1. Uganda is extremely important to our national security. Where do you think we get all our, uh, um, er, what does Uganda make?

  2. Amigo,
    I share your...your...whatever. This asshat is amazing. We can't defend our borders, he sue the states that actually try to do so, but he sends armed troops into a shithole part of the world that has absolutely no strategic or economic interest to the USA. What an asshole!

    He stood by and watched the muslims slaughter tens of thousands of Christian in the sudan and did nothing. Not a peep about the Coptics being killed in Egypt at the moment but Uganda is now important that we risk Us troops. WTF?

    Paging congress... paging congress.

  3. Tenth,

    I had to look - their principle export is coffee. Apparently they have extensive and as yet untapped resources to include copper and oil. Maybe that's O's plan?

  4. H-Nox,

    I think you hit on it - Obama must think that The Lord's Army are Protestants and he's going after them. They are some whack-job combination of Christianity, Tribal tradition, started by some witch-priestess. He can't call a Muslim Extremist a terrorist, but he'll damn well rub out a Lunatic fringe Christian extremist. Maybe he's looking for his own Waco.

    Oh - and Congress is a player in this. Created under Democratic (Socialist, Progressive, Liberal, whatever) leadership in 2009, but it was passed in May of 2010. That law virtually gives him the green light get bloody.

    Obama needs to rack up a big body count to catch up with his heroes. He's not going to get there zinging Hellfire missiles into Pah-kee-stahn two or three times a week.

  5. CS, you ended your great post with: "Uganda . . . . .for crying out loud, what next?" Might I humbly suggest the answer is you, TGP, Hardnox, me, etc etc.

  6. The official line (of crap) says that the forces will only be there in an advisory / intel capacity but, we all know that the Godz army will just taking out any target of opportunity.

    I do recall a war starting under a "advisory" capacity in the past that killed some 58,000 soldiers.

  7. Mrs. AL,

    I'm sure that is part of the plan - as I told -Sepp in another post - Thankfully our Founding Fathers ensured that I am provided the means to not go meekly into the night.

  8. -Sepp,

    Congress is a problem here to - there was a voice vote - so apparently there wasn't enough dissent to drive recording who was for and against. The list of sponsors was bi-partisan in both houses.

    Time to write our Congress critters and nip this in the bud.

  9. Having talked to an expert on advising foreign armies, I will say that our 100 troops are in imminent danger of being prosecuted for war crimes by their own commandeer in chief. This will end badly.

  10. Tenth,

    I would say that you are probably correct.

  11. I've heard of this so called "Lords" army and their works are ANYTHING from liberty. Obama knows the American people are on to him and so all this is going down before we vote him O-W-T!

  12. Common Sense-100% right on-as usual-- i just hope that more of America will wake up and VOTE-it is not too late--yet.

  13. Ranger,

    Agreed - Obama has got to go. I can't wait for November 2012.

  14. Gallant,

    Thank you - we have an election this year in Virginia. People seem to be pretty annoyed - I how it doesn't wear off.
