FYEO has been waiting for the shoe to drop. Looks like it dropped. The Ugandan government said that the "peace agreement" signed in December with Sudan isn't being implemented by Khartoum. Uganda cited Sudanese failure to release Ugandan prisoners and stop support of rebels fighting Uganda. The Lord's Resistance Army (which is supported by Khartoum) started a new operation in Uganda at the end of 1999 and the operation continues. Uganda claims the LRA has kidnapped over 10,000 children in the last 5 years.
