Today’s Boston herald has Elizabeth Warren talking tough about US military action against Iran. Of course, as someone who has been critical about the war in Iraq and Afghanistan, this is pure political posturing. You can be sure that she is talking tough about Iran because nobody believe that the United States would take action against such a large nation.
However, Ms. Warren may well be on the hotseat over another foreign policy controversy–sending armed combat troops to the African nation of Uganda. As CNN reports: http://www.cnn.com/2011/10/14/…
Obama orders U.S. troops to help chase down African ‘army’ leader
President Barack Obama is sending about 100 U.S. troops to Africa to help hunt down the leaders of the notoriously violent Lord’s Resistance Army.
“I have authorized a small number of combat-equipped U.S. forces to deploy to central Africa to provide assistance to regional forces that are working toward the removal of Joseph Kony from the battlefield,” Obama said in letter to House Speaker John Boehner and Daniel Inouye, the president pro tempore of the Senate. Kony is the head of the Lord’s Resistance Army.
So what is Ms. Warren’s position on US involvement in a civil war in Uganda? Do you think that those camped out in Occupy Boston will care that Barack Obama is putting US soldiers on African soil to hunt down and kill an African leader?
