Joseph Kony and the LRA

So, there's a YouTube video making the rounds these days. "Went viral" as the youngsters say. It's about the Lord's Resistance Army and their leader, Joseph Kony.

The video is about 30 minutes long, and if you really want to get technical about it, I haven't actually, you know, watched it. That being said, I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that Kony is probably not portrayed as someone you'd want to have over for dinner.

I've worked Africa issues from a number of different perspectives since late 2005, and not to sound too much like a hipster douchebag, but I was aware of this particular issue before it was hip to be.

So my question is this... Why now?
