Just when you thought you could not get more depressed about the state of humanity. Uganda officials are dealing with a rash of mutilations and murders of children. The reason is chilling. Some Ugandans believe that mutilating and murdering children can bring you good luck. With the recent Ugandan elections, people appear to have tried to rig the outcome through child ritualistic murder. Makes you feel a little better about the current crop of candidates in our elections. Ritualistic child murder is perhaps the only thing that they have not accused each other of.
Uganda has long dealt with a common belief in blood sacrifices. We previously discussed how Ugandans were kidnapping and ritualistically killing albinos.
Some of the children have their hearts and livers ripped out. Others are missing their heads.
Shelin Kasozi of Kyampisi Childcare Ministries (KCM) has dedicated an entire charity to the care for survivors of attempted child sacrifice.
President Yoweri Museveni ultimately won the February 18th election, extending his 30-year rule in a highly questionable election.
Advocates have documented at least seven child and six adult sacrifice cases in 2015 — compared to nine child and four adult sacrifice cases reported in 2014.
In one of the most disturbing cases from 2012, Hanifa Namuyanja, 82, was sentenced to 15 years in jail for taking part in the sacrifice of her granddaughter Shamim Nalwoga. The girl was found with her tongue and eyes cut out and genitals mutilated. That only gets the grandmother 15 years? What does it take to get a life sentence in Uganda?

The Spaniards took how long, 20-30 years, to stop the Aztecs from ripping the living hearts out of other Native Americans? And, they complain about colonialism in Africa? Apparently it didn’t last long enough to suppress ritualistic child killing in Uganda.
An old Star Trek had a take. Hand to hand to decide the fate of the world.
There’s a lot to be said for a North Korean nuke going off in space. The high tech folks would lose all GPS. most remote targeting and communications hampered.
All sides would be much more engaged person to person.
Either enough die to free up lebensraum or we personally see the carnage and decide enough.
On the other front, there wouldn’t be much more to discuss human global watming.
Well if we current humans really did come out of Africa, then those who remained must be the leading indicators of what is to come.
And sure enough others have mentioned how the ability to rip each other apart is so “wonderfully” accomplished with technology embodied in standoff weapons. Ah evolution is a wonder to behold.
I absolute detest ISIS et al. But have to give them some “credit” as they do it personally.
Ugly savages they may be.
But then what of
our Manifest Destiny
The combatant in the field is worth manifold more than the one (no matter the party) sitting in an oval room agonizing over the worth of the target when deciding the appropriate number of “collaterals” to kill with a drone.
