President Obama has ordered a sharp increase in U.S. Special Operations forces deployed to Uganda and sent U.S. military aircraft there for the first time in the ongoing effort to hunt down warlord Joseph Kony across a broad swath of central Africa.

The CV-22 Osprey aircraft will arrive in Uganda by midweek, along with refueling aircraft and about 150 Air Force Special Operations forces and other airmen to fly and maintain the planes, according to Amanda Dory, deputy assistant secretary of defense for African affairs. At least four Ospreys will be deployed.

Doing that to Russia and Syria would involve more work, so let's take on some African warlords for the "war on terror" theatrics. Seems legit!

Thank you for your service all the brave US military personnel. The CEOs of Exxon et.al sleep peacefully and safely at night knowing that their bonuses are intact and corporate profits well-protected. :lol:
