Holy War in the Congo

 

Background: For several months, the Lord’s Republic of the Congo (LRC) has been waging an insurgency against the government of Warlordia.

Up until now attacks have originated out of the organized state which is in part of the former-Central African Republic. Under the nose of the watchful Warlordians, Kony has been strategically putting forces south of the border.

The Warlordian response to the activities of the LRC has been uncharacteristically lukewarm, with only a few batallions of light infantry and a cadre of officer cadets deployed to keep the major transport routes open.

Foreign analysts are as yet divided on the cause of this comparatively passive stance.
