U. S. to send troops to the DRC?

There's a bill in the senate right now to ask Obama to send troops to the DRC to fight the FDLR and the LRA.

If you haven't read my last post, do so. It explains a lot. I'm going to continue assuming you have.

Anyways, the LRA are rebels that were expelled from Uganda and operate in a similar fashion to the FDLR. Uganda, Sudan, and DRC troops have been fighting the LRA in campaigns this spring, at the same time as DRC and Rwandan troops have been fighting the FDLR. Both groups have kicked up their activity since the end of these operations.

Both the US and France are debating sending troops to the region.

Keep up with the news. Both here and in Iran.

Until next time,
