David Axe is itching for the US to wipe out Congo's Lord's Resistance Army, a group that "began in the 1980s as a Ugandan rebel movement with actual grievances [but] is now just a roving tribe of killers":

No massive troop deployment. No occupation. No drawn-out conflict. No headline news in the U.S. Just a few spooks, a few commandos, some airplanes and choppers and the permission of Congolese president Joseph Kabila. By American military standards, it wouldn’t take much. But it would make life a lot safer for millions of people in Central Africa and might help reduce the cost to the world of keeping Congo on life support. Plus, it could show the way forward for a smarter, less expensive American way of war.
