For those of you who thought Obama had promised to END various wars instead of starting new U.S. involvement in them, relax.

These troops are there, merely in an advisory capacity.

Obama said so himself. So quit worrying. Who would ever attack U.S. troops in a foreign country, anyway?

All those guns, ammo, and other weapons they are bringing with them, are only for self-defense. I repeat, they are there only to advise.

It is completely coincidental that the first U.S. troops sent to Vietnam, were sent in the same numbers... and had exactly the same orders.

Obama Sends 100 US Troops to Uganda to Help Combat Lord’s Resistance Army

By Jake Tapper

Two days ago President Obama authorized the deployment to Uganda of approximately 100 combat-equipped U.S. forces to help regional forces “remove from the battlefield” – meaning capture or kill – Lord’s Resistance Army leader Joseph Kony and senior leaders of the LRA.

The forces will ultimately go to Uganda, South Sudan, the Central African Republic, and the Democratic Republic of the Congo, with the permission of those countries.

The president made this announcement in a letter to House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, Friday afternoon, saying that “deploying these U.S. Armed Forces furthers U.S. national security interests and foreign policy and will be a significant contribution toward counter-LRA efforts in central Africa.”

He said that “although the U.S. forces are combat-equipped, they will only be providing information, advice, and assistance to partner nation forces, and they will not themselves engage LRA forces unless necessary for self-defense.”

if you don't see 100 advisers ,and 120,000 troops in full invasion of nation, killing 4000 americans and countless more Iraqis...as not the same, then get smarter.

Tu quoque or the appeal to hypocrisy, is a kind of logical fallacy. A tu quoque argument attempts to discredit the opponent's position by asserting his failure to act consistently in accordance with that position; it attempts to show that a criticism or objection applies equally to the person making it.
Get smarter. ;)

Do you realize what you just did? You should follow your own advice sometimes:

OK I'm confused. I thought Obama was all for uprisings against the state ? Now he's propping up this leader ? Is this one related or something ?

The President of Uganda, currently Yoweri Kaguta Museveni, is both head of state and head of government.
...
In 2009, many news sources reported on Jeff Sharlet's investigation regarding ties between Museveni and the American fundamentalist Christian organization The Fellowship (also known as "The Family"). Sharlet reports that Douglas Coe, leader of The Fellowship, identified Museveni as the organization's "key man in Africa."
...
The Fellowship, also known as the Family, is a U.S.-based religious and political organization founded in 1935 by Abraham Vereide. The stated purpose of the Fellowship is to provide a fellowship forum for decision makers to share in Bible studies, prayer meetings, worship experiences and to experience spiritual affirmation and support.

The organization has been described as one of the most politically well-connected ministries in the United States. The Fellowship shuns publicity and its members share a vow of secrecy. The Fellowship's leader Doug Coe and others have explained the organization's desire for secrecy by citing biblical admonitions against public displays of good works, insisting they would not be able to tackle diplomatically sensitive missions if they drew public attention.

Although the organization is secretive, it holds one regular public event each year, the National Prayer Breakfast held in Washington, D.C. Every sitting United States president since President Dwight D. Eisenhower, up to President Barack Obama, has participated in at least one National Prayer Breakfast during his term.

The Fellowship's known participants include ranking United States government officials, corporate executives, heads of religious and humanitarian aid organizations, and ambassadors and high ranking politicians from across the world. Many United States Senators and Congressmen who have publicly acknowledged working with the Fellowship or are documented as having done so work together to pass or influence legislation.​

Anything stand out to you? :rolleyes:
