2 distinct wars, 2 different results - #Amin, #Museveni #Uganda


Liar, liar pants on fire... as the saying goes. Uganda has had two major wars that lasted more than six months. One war was commanded by an alleged brutal dictator Idi Amin (1979) and another war was commanded by a freedom fighter and a peace loving general, Yoseri Kaguta Museveni, but who was the actual freedom fighter of the two?

During the 1979 war, Amin avoided killing civilians as much as possible and nobody can accuse the late president of intentionally killing civilians during that war. Given the alleged history of brutality Amin was known for, this would have been his chance to slaughter millions of Ugandans because it was a war. If Amin was known for killing between 300,000-500,000 Ugandans when Uganda was not at war, you would expect that in that war commanded by Amin, many civilians would have lost their lives but it was not the case and nobody can blame Amin of killing civilians during that war.

Here comes a self proclaimed freedom fighter with no known record of killing civilians, Yoseri Kaguta Museveni and the results of that war he commanded was not you would expect from a freedom fighter but a bloody thirst dictator with a past history of killing people. Many people have accused Museveni of killing millions in the war that brought him to power than Amin, the man he called a swine. Hitler was known to kill people as a leader and it was worse in the war that toppled him ( World War II).

So who was really behind killing people during Amin's time in office? Was it Amin or someone else? More people died after Amin was thrown out of power than when he was in power and why? Amin was out of the way so it was Museveni and Obote, still more Ugandans were being killed. With Obote out of the way, we are left with Museveni and the same thing that was happening during Amin are still happening today. People disappear, put in the car boots by people wearing civilian clothes, staged accidents, do you get the picture?
