Fears of the Black continent, the LRA

Horrors of the Black Continent, "LRA"Usually when they say the "religious fundamentalists", appears the image of a bearded Wahhabi or the Taliban. But the Black continent loves surprises — we will focus on so-called. "Lord's Resistance Army" ("Lord's Resistance Army», Lord's Resistance Army, LRA, or LRA) that being a Christian, just "famous" as merciless killers, cannibals and looters of thousands of people priemuschestvenno kids, which they converted into militant working livestock, or sex slaves. Favorites of this movement were responsible for mass killings, mass kidnappings, the appeal of people in slavery.

UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon described the act "Army of the Lord," as "appalling atrocities" and called on the countries of Central Africa for concerted action against her.

The conflict with the role of the organization (or sects) lasts for a quarter century: it was created in 1987 (according to other sources in 1986), when representatives of the Acholi tribe rebelled against the government of Yoweri Musevini in Uganda. Their official goal — the establishment of a theocratic regime based on the Biblical 10 Commandments. Initially, it was called "the Ugandan People's Democratic Christian Army", then "the Ugandan Christian Democratic Army", with 1991-1992 and is today a title. Main bases and strongholds of the "army of God" placed in the south of Sudan, and in adjacent territories to Uganda DR Congo. The organization believes that the new society can be built only from the untouched sins kids, because when the raids, killing adults polls and steal babies.

Today's favorite, very charismatic — Joseph Stallions last Catholic priest, he declared himself a prophet of God and the voice of the Holy Spirit. Local residents believe that can stop bullets. In 2005, the International Criminal Tribunal issued a warrant for his arrest, and his associates, accusing them of sins against humanity and war sins they accuse of murder, rape, forcibly stealing babies, etc.

All the murders committed "in the name of God," though the Christian dogma, the militants perfectly aligned with the savage traditions that have come from the depths of the past, for example: cannibalism. Some analysts believe that the favorite "Army of God, just hide behind Christianity, good intentions, so the second man in the organization, Vincent Otti (Stallions executed in 2007), stated that they want: to overthrow a dictatorship and end the suppression of ordinary people; restore multiparty democracy in Uganda; put an end to the trampling of human rights and the humiliation of the human inhabitants of the advantages of the country, to ensure peace and stability in the country, to ensure unity, sovereignty, and economic prosperity of the country, to prevent the discrimination of the population. As their main goal — is a rip-off of the local population, downtrodden constant terror. Plus mestyachkovy nationalism — all others who are subject to destruction or slavery (taking into account the ideology that slaves can only be toddlers and young girls)

The main ways of "the army of the Lord" — a terror when militants carry out the action, the people elected village destroyed, and the babies are stolen. Kids turn into sex slaves, working cattle or militants. The method of training child soldiers is very simple introduction to the murder, that it has become commonplace, children lose their humanity, lose their ability to return to ordinary life. Toddlers lowered the threshold of horror death because of their make good guns, ready to perish for the sake of the leader. Not counting kills, another way of "bloody bail" — introduction to cannibalism. It is believed that the group every year steals to thousands of kids. For example, in October 1996, militants "army" in the north-western Uganda attacked the convoy, police station and a school where 150 schoolgirls abducted. In January 1997, the LRA rebels massacred over 400 man Lamvo in the north of Uganda. In May 2002, they were in just one raid in Eastern Equatoria in Sudan destroyed above 450. In November 2003, the militants "Christians" was killed in northern Uganda Ayara village, killing more than 100 of its inhabitants, including a Christian priest. In June 2006, they made the best-known and his brash act — attacked a suburb of the capital of Southern Sudan, Juba.

Extraordinary sectarian hatred cause other Christians — they are destroyed with particular ruthlessness. So, December 28, 2008 Adventure "Lord's Resistance Army" in the Catholic Church in northeastern Democratic Republic of Congo killed 45 man, bodies were dismembered and scattered throughout the neighborhood. Similar acts have been committed throughout the environment. This event is dubbed — "Christmas Massacre."

Military operations against the LRA does not bring of success, its members are dissolved in the tropical undergrowth, and after the withdrawal of troops swiftly restore the depleted ranks. So in 2002 failed operation Sudanese and Ugandan military. In 2006, the Yankees failed developed and the UN operation to neutralize the LRA leaders — eight Guatemalan special forces prepared for this action, have been destroyed, "the soldiers of the Lord." Failed operation in 2008 — it had together, Uganda, DRC and Southern Sudan. "Army" enjoys excellent inaccessible mountainous and forested areas, without coming into direct clashes. And the strength of the "army" is small enough — a few thousand. Coming out of a strike, the LRA immediately makes the loss. After all, back in 1996, the government of Uganda as a measure to combat separatism Acholi, made camp, where herded up to 1 million man. Because the LRA has the support of tribesmen.

The main reason for this prepyadstviya as many hundreds of other similar conflicts of the Black continent — it's colonial heritage. The British and French (and other colonialists smaller) "stepping down" from Africa, so it redrew the map — just on the line, or on the eye that made a lot of man-made structures, putting in their competing tribes with centuries-old roots of enmity. Thus, the same Acholi divided between several states. Black mainland simply programmed constant slaughter, conflict, war. And the Western world has a direct benefit from this — in this "muddy water" can be as before sucking the wealth of Africa, until the local cut each other's throats. And out of this vicious circle can not see …
