KONY  Seen by the world as a man who has abducted, mutilated, tortured and killed thousands of innocent people.  Referred to as the present day Hitler.  Uses child Soldiers for war.  The LRA's grand vision of an Acholi nation based on the Ten Commandments- savage beatings are meted out to all nonbelievers. LRA military indoctrination consists of beatings, rapes, and the severing of limbs by machete-all based on selected Biblical passages--no doubt some of the harshest found in the pages of the Old Testament.
