    Police-type action? Or valid use of the military?

    Will These Troops Support the Muslim Group, Or the...

    ....the non-Muslim groups? That is the question, and I think they will lend their support and firepower to Muslim factions.

    The LRA is a supposedly "Christian" group, though they mixed up in so much stuff they aren't even close to real Christians. Here's a telling quote about them from a Wikipedia article:

    I don't believe we should be deploying any troops over there. The situation in that country doesn't affect our national security. But, if we are going to do something about it, taking out the LRA seems like a good thing.
