Countering the Lord’s Resistance Army in Central Africa
The Lord's Resistance Army's operations have spread from northern Uganda to cover an expansive territory including eastern Congo, the Central African Republic, and southern Sudan. In 2010, the Obama administration developed a US strategy to increase support for regional and peacekeeping operations against the LRA. Success depends on the political will and military capability of Uganda, its African neighbors, and UN peacekeepers to separate LRA units from civilian populations and build robust capabilities to track and strike LRA positions.
