Uganda: October 17, 2004


 The army feels that it can hunt down, and kill or capture, the last of the LRA, by the end of the year. More than at any time in the past, this may be possible. The LRA is down to a few groups, composed of less than a thousand fighters. Every week, a few more LRA members come out of the bush and surrender, and provide more information on what is going on within the remaining LRA units. Some of the remaining LRA leaders want to surrender, but are fearful of being killed by subordinates of hard core LRA supreme leader Joseph Kony. After 16 years of fighting, the army wants to be done with Kony and his mindless, and extremely violent, revolution. It's a fight to the death, and the odds are against the LRA.
