Senator Feingold urges diplomacy, not military solutions to Great Lakes conflicts

U.S. Senator Russ Feingold spoke on the Senate floor last Thursday about his recent trip to Uganda and the Democratic Republic of Congo. Speaking about the LRA, Feingold said, “On a recent trip to Uganda, the U.S. Assistant Secretary for African Affairs signaled that the U.S. would support regional efforts for a more militarized policy towards all rebel groups…Mr. President, this is not the time to start talking about our support for a military solution to these conflicts. Instead, we should seek to build upon current diplomatic initiatives – both in the region as well as at New York last week at the opening of the UN General Assembly.” Read more at AllAfrica.com.
