    Didnt something like this happen back in the 60s...and they were advisors too.

    President Obama is sending about 100 U.S. troops to central Africa to help local forces battle the Lord's Resistance Army, a rebel group that the administration says has waged a campaign of murder, rape and kidnapping for more than two decades.
    Obama said Friday the troops will act as advisers in efforts to hunt down rebel leader Joseph Kony but will not engage in combat except in self-defense, according to a letter to Congress that was obtained by Fox News.

    The White House says the first troops arrived in Uganda on Wednesday. Ultimately, they will also deploy in South Sudan, the Central African Republic and Congo.
    A senior administration official downplayed the notion that the armed troops could be drawn into a hostile, combat situation, saying the move was sparked by Congress passing a law year urging the administration to do something to crack down on the Lord's Resistance Army.

    Look, speculate and pontificate all you want regarding this topic!

    I will sit back and wait for the all knowing one(s) to post the true perspective on this topic from the other side and from the great white north.
    I am just a dumb hay-seed blonde with boobies with conservative values and a huge bank account.

    (This P.O.S. President needs to vacate the house on the hill and I will work hard to secure his eviction notice.)

    If a Republican had done this, you'd be trumpeting the need to for America to go in and "do the right thing". Kind ofl like Bush and Iraq. Remember that one? But since it's Obama, you and FOX will spin-it as a negative.

    Oh, I agree, remember Nicaragua ?
    That was a disaster.

    But Africa - sure go for it, so they don't keep on starving and the crooks don't steal all the foreign aid.

    You are so right.
    Am I that transparent and self centered?
    My concerns are about myself and my stock portfolio. Why should I bother changing channels?
    I now understand my Fox News Habit is detrimental to the greater good and I don't care.
    I have a trust fund in my future along with the money I slam into my investments monthly.

    I vote. I am a Republican and I voted for Bush. You can blame Bush for me voting for him.

    (Could someone explain to that P.O.S. living in the White House - people, even a few American people, the last number I recall - 30,000 humans now DEAD as a result of DRUG CARTEL violence in Mexico in the past year.
    No biggie.
    It is just our neighbor to the South.
    --- never mind.
    It is not important.)
