, "but to raise support for his arrest and set a precedent for international justice."

AHAHAHHA No. Remember Iraq? Remember Libya? Can you see Afghanistan? PEOPLE HATE "INTERNATIONAL JUSTICE".

This kind of **** , "boy soldiers" has been going on for decades. This is nothing new. There's little to nothing we can do about it, either. Throwing money at it won't magically cure everything, believe it or not. I feel for those kids, but if we send soldiers there, the kids will be forced to shoot at our soldiers, and our soldiers WILL SHOOT THEM, AND THEN WE'LL GET IN TROUBLE FOR SHOOTING KIDS.

I just want to make a few points that will probably make me sound like an ******* , but here it goes.

First of all, of the $8.3 Million that Invisible Children spent in 2011, only about $2.8 Million (roughly 31%) actually made it to Uganda, and that amount was likely further whittled down by the government, meaning the actual children got much much less. In contrast, Invisible Children spent about $2.8 Million just on the filming and producing the Kony movie (and movies like it). Essentially, they spent more charity money making a movie about their charity than they actually gave to the children.

Now, the goal of this video isn't necessarily to bring in money to go directly to the children, but to help indirectly by pressuring the US government to get involved. And that's great... except for one thing. I gather that most of you are Ron Paul supporters, yes? And what has been his rallying cry throughout his entire campaign? "No policing the world."

Think about what IC wants and decide if that is what you want. They want us to basically use our military to fix Africa. I think everyone can agree that what Kony has done is absolutely horrific and it should be stopped, but do you really want us to get militarily involved in Africa?

I'm not saying you shouldn't support Kony 2012, but I am saying that if you choose to do so, you should do some additional research and figure out what exactly it is that you're supporting, because all of the information needed to determine that is not going to be found in this video.

13:40 We are determined to cooperate with any friend of Uganda to ensure this mindless killing and slaughter is ended.... But only option is America to fix this issue?

this was made for Invisible Children to make money. The conflict is much bigger than Joseph Kony who is no longer even in Uganda and hasn't been in 6 years.

Why are people so stupid. Me sitting at me computer doing nothing will have the same effect as some moron teenager that thinks liking a page and updating a Facebook status will change the world. Everyone I know who got caught up in the initial hype have already forgotten about it, its ridiculous. Instead of using social media to make yourself look like an activist, maybe try donating money to charities like unicef who you know will put the money to good use, not a "charity" that until last week most people had never heard of. The moron kony isnt even active anymore, since 2007 he hasnt been heard of, his believed to have left Uganda all together, Im not defending the guy, his absolute scum and should pay, but updating your facebook status and preaching that your now a humanitarian wont do **** . **** people are stupid

As I have been recently enlightened, I have come to suspect that this KONY 2012 is most likely a form of EXTREMELY powerful propaganda.

The reason I suspect this is the following:
Recently, the US military have discovered Iran terrorists developing WMDs (Aka, A-Bombs.) After discovering these, they began to take immediate action to warn the people of Iran to leave the vicinity, as the US military are going to (attempt) to destroy the factories in which these bombs are being developed.

NOW, because this is all happening (and it is relatively immoral, or whatever) they have attempted to bring light to the child soldiers, and distract not only the US, but the entire WORLD that this is going to happen, (because they're probably sick of hippy protesters) which is beautifully organised, and the perfect opportunity for them to annihilate Iran.

For years there has been children forced into war and sex slavery. We, as a nation have the power and tools to inform everyone on what is happening, and hopefully make a change. Many of us have turned a blind eye to their cries, and it took a handful of people to start something big. Who is to say that someone helped create this movie for no profit at all, posted it on YouTube, and one person sees it then ten and so on. I think you guys wouldn't be commenting half of this **** if that was what our country was facing. Bringing subjected to watching your children get ******** , raped, abducted. Having to witness all of this and have no power, no say, when we have the power to lend a hand.
