No Blood for Oil!

You know I don't mean it, right? There's a big temptation to go full-moonbat and assault the administration with all the slings and arrows that were used on George Bush, but it's not in the best interest of the country. Period. The Left's antics when we went into Iraq did not hurt George Bush nearly as much as they hurt the country. I see no reason to repeat the performance with this president.

Besides, I haven't figured out what our policy is yet, and that makes it darned hard to criticize it.

So let me throw a curve ball and praise Obama for one bit of foreign policy. Last May Obama signed the Lord's Resistance Army Disarmament and Northern Uganda Recovery Act. And in November the administration released the “Strategy to Support the Disarmament of the Lord's Resistance Army.” (pdf) And those were good things. Now Obama has to aid the Ugandan army in hunting down and arresting (or eliminating) Joseph Kony and his top lieutenants. I hope that involvement in Libya doesn't distract from this goal.

Here's a brief history of the damage done by Joseph Kony and his Lords Resistance Army. They're rapist murders, Christian in name only. If we care about humanitarian crises, this one certainly deserves our attention.

Do some good Mr president, and I'll give kudos. But be warned, if these were just empty promises, I'll do things like pointing out that your wife has the same blouse as the French speaking gentleman at 1:12 in the video.
