Quoting ~Julie Blue Eyes~:" Kony and his minions are nutjobs. I knew about him (them) but had forgotten. Again....still...he's ... [snip!] ... step in? I even asked it in the title! The answer I got in this thread was an overwhelming "No"...which surprised me."
It isn't a resounding no - so much as...
"hey, so there is a domestic dispute going on next door & I think there is violence involved & I am not sure why it started, what weapons may or may not be involved & how many are there...should I send my mentally & emotionally challenged teenage brother over there to help settle things???And BTW he really is sweet & means well, but sometimes without warning he acts out &oh, he accidentally once killed the cat by petting it too hard...."
The fact is, I don't think we
have a clue how to actually resolve other people's issues & have proven it time & again when we have gotten involved. Perhaps part of our issue is that we've always been focused on the profitability of what we have done versus the humanitarianism of it & perhaps, with the right focus that could change. However
, I do not think we are prepared to be able to do that THIS moment. Look at hurricane Katrina & what a mess we made of that - in our own country, in peace time & people starving to death, dehydrating, we cant' establish safety....
A better question is - what do YOU think we CAN do? Do you truly believe we could do anything that would in fact make it better & if so, what?
