More on Kony 2012: what’s really happening in Uganda?

Like a lot of people, I haven’t got very much idea of the background to Ugandan politics and Kony 2012. how many people actually understand whats going on over there? Idi Amin was made famous in the Last king of Scotland but have you ever heard of Apollo Milton Obote and his ‘moderate’ reign of terror over there?

And why’s the Kony bashing started at this present place and time, when he’s been around for years? Has the discovery of oil in Africa got anything to do with a new, pro-war viral campaign aimed at the demographic most likely to oppose foreign interventionism?
