This is a short video clip (sneak peek only) from an interview with Adam Branch for our documentary, at Makerere University (Kampala, Uganda) earlier this year.
The interview touches on military intervention in the hunt for Joseph Kony and the LRA, in Uganda and neighbouring countries such as the DRC (Democratic Republic of Congo) and CAR (Central African Republic).
Adam Branch is senior research fellow at the Makerere Institute of Social Research, Uganda, and assistant professor of political science at San Diego State University, USA. He is the author of Displacing Human Rights: War and Intervention in Northern Uganda. (http://www.aljazeera.com/indepth/opinion/profile/adam-branch.html)

Here’s a snippet from an interview we did with Michael Kirkpatrick in Dallas, Texas…
What’s the difference between the actions of a WARMONGER & WARLORD?
Take Uganda‘s President Yoweri Museveni & LRA (Lord’s Resistance Army) leader Joseph Kony for example… One’s totally MAD and the other’s just plain BAD… And both are BRUTAL despots and responsible for horrific crimes against humanity. (although Museveni has full impunity whereas Kony isn’t so privileged)
People would assume that the President (also known as M7) is the lesser of the two evils, but we are not so easily convinced. What are your thoughts?
So who’s worse? It’s a classic case of Mad Vs Bad…

Excerpt from Article:
‘No blackmail, but persistence of a long term plan’
For many years, international companies have benefited from the instability in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Paul Kagame and Joweri Museveni have as well continued to plunder the country’s resources through a network of armed militias spread all over Eastern Congo.
There has been an official narrative which has been successively sold to the general opinion saying that the Rwandan genocide of April 1994 was a failure of the international community to protect lives in danger.
And for that reason, there are views particularly among Western scholars and foreign aid agencies claiming that the unconditional support to Rwanda over these last 18 years was a consequence of their guilt.
Either they are in denial of what they fully know, or they want to fool those among the general public who are ignorant of what has been going on.
