On ‘Kony 2012’, George Clooney and the odd couple


Stumbled on Milton Allimadi from Black Star News discussing ‘Kony 2012′ on today’s live stream at Democracy Now. That in turn led me to upload the attached clip, in which Mr Allmadi offers a wonderfully lucid, logical, debunking of the ‘Kony 2012’ sham. Of course, with his contention that the real reason for American intervention in the area is the discovery of oil in the north of Uganda, South Sudan and the Central African Republic, we could also look to other actors in what is an ongoing farce.

Firstly, with, according to one blogger,  George Clooney travelling to and from Sudan “with official Pentagon and intelligence support and protection”, we might at least doubt the actor’s supposedly altruistic motives in wanting to help the people in the region. Indeed, would it be going too far if we were to construe a link between ‘Kony 2012’, George, and the “odd-couple” from the post earlier today?

Well, they really do know how to sell their product and if we are beginning to see through the hope and change fellow, what about a video with a nice little white kid, the popular and handsome George Clooney and two jolly nice and awfully concerned mothers, to help them sell military intervention here, there and everywhere.

There are a lot of poor bastards out there being used and abused; it is just not cricket "old bean". Something tells me that ignorance is not bliss, but is, in fact, simply ignorance and in the global village we cannot look the other way.
