This man Kony should be captured and tortured for what he has done to the people of Uganda!

I will be debating against this topic as to why we shouldn't get involved in this issue.

Who will have the burden of proof?

Let me be first to say that this issue has been raging on since 1987 when Joseph Kony founded the LRA ( Lord's Resistance Army ). The charity as well is being sued for registering as an NPO ( Non-Profit Org. ) and maintaining over 70% of the funds that have been raised, and only 30% ~ goes to the African children in need.

Considering what the United States and many others have already been through is essentially another world war, the war in Iraq. Our resources are not out of the question but what is in question is why should we allocate resources and spend more money funding soldiers and support to an issue that has been well aware since before many were born. The

The U.S has a strict issue with neglecting it's own countries issues, and helping others instead. This is not our battle to fight, yes the cause is a great idea. Raise awareness as to what Joseph Kony has done, but don't spend more time on a new issue. The U.S is in a debt of over 15 trillion dollars, how can we expect to continue our role as the saviors of the world if our economy goes down the drain?

Once again, I state that the idea is grand, but the way people are going about this issue is completely askew.

"This man Kony should be captured and tortured for what he has done to the people of Uganda!"

Thank you for debating this argument with me.

I think that we should get involved because America is known for keeping the peace through out the world. By capturing Kony we are not only helping an entire race we are showing that Americans are here to help and we arent just about invading different countries because we want to (Iraq). Kony has captured more than 30,000 children and taken them away from their homes. Mothers and fathers has lost their child because a man named Kony, a man with power has abducted their children. He is making the girls become sex slaves and the boys barbarians.

(Please reply in time, before 12pm..i will be online all night, for my philosphy class 5 rounds, thanks.)
