- Question:-How many (child) soldiers of the LRA have been killed?
I've designing a poster about child soldier deaths within the LRA, but I can't seem to come across any information about casualties /within/ the LRA. Information about deaths of civilians is readily available, but I need actual statistics about how large of a percent of the abducted children within the LRA have been killed.
Answer:-Do you actually believe the LRA keeps track of and releases such info?

- Question:-Where do Ugandan LRA rebels get their weapons?
I saw a huge Invisible Children Rescue rally tonight about child soldiers in Africa, and it really moved me. However, I don't know much about the situation, so I'm trying to learn more. My question is -- I know the rebels loot villages, but where do they get weapons from? Do they loot them also? Does someone sell it to them? If yes, who? Where do the rebels get the money to buy them? Does someone finance them? Why?
Answer:-Groups like this are self-financing via kidnapping and robbery. Weapons are easy to buy in the 3rd world. The army and police sell weapons out the back door. In evil cultures, children are ideal assassins, easy to train and enthusiastic.

- Question:-Why is NO country helping out in Uganda where the LRA is killing thousands of people?
read this article in Newsweek.
Answer:-Uganda is in Africa. We put so much aid into Africa fighting AIDS and diseases and educating them about the diseases, only to have some of the tribes in Africa to purposefully transmit AIDS (not kidding!) It's some ritual and whatnot where they purposefully give another person AIDS. We don't have any more money to give them to help them with the killing going on. Do you not watch the news on how we spend so much on the Iraq war and trying to get our economy recovered. We are hurting ourselves, how could we possibly give anymore money to an area where it won't make one bit a difference?
We can't financially support every hurting country in this world.
No one else wants to help because once you help, then you are in it for the long run.

Answer:-Good move. They’re about as evil as it gets. They’ve done horrific things to the women and children there. Horrific. They’re savages, even though Rush Limbaugh likes to defend them as ‘christians.'
