Uganda: a preventable tragedy

Head Heeb analyzes the state of peace talks between the government of Uganda and the Lord's Resistance Army, “Given the volatility of the situation in the north, however, a state of “no war, no peace” is inherently unstable, and unless talks resume, it will only be a matter of time before a UPDF-LRA clash spirals into full-scale fighting. When the collapse of talks is combined with the recent resurgence of violence between the government and the Karamojong people of the northeast (who, ironically, were armed by the government in 2003 to fight the LRA), the north could shortly be plunged back into a brutal multi-sided war.”
