8:39 am
who to do it to -- and i would say make the phone call. it is worth it. it really matters, and what we're asking for is for the president and for us to allocate in the budget, which has already been allocated, but specifically to continue the 100 u.s. military advisors who are now in uganda working with the uganda military to capture joseph coney and his top commanders and remove them from the field, and also to encourage on abducted child soldiers to return home. and it has been such an incredibly successful campaign, and it came out of the lords resistance army disarmament northern uganda recovery act of 2010. and it has resulted in -- you know, once the military advisors arrived in 2011, there has been
8:40 am
a 63% decrease in killings. >> stephanie: wow. >> the combatants on the field are down to about 150. and two of joseph coney's top commanders have been removed from the field, and that's huge. >> stephanie: right. because you said even if the child solders come home, they will just recruit more. >> exactly. if the top commanders are still at large, these joseph coney can re-up by kidnapping more children and killing more civilians. we have already done a really big investment in this since 2011, and we're so close, that to pull out now, we would lose all of the ground that we have gained, and that would be a tragedy for thousands -- just to give you a sense of -- at the height of the insurgency, 1.7 million people were living in an internally displaced persons camp, and a thousand people a week were dying.
8:41 am
so this is a very big thing. we have got to finish what we went to do. and i spoke with a top -- you know, very well respected policy -- africa policy expert who is in uganda on the ground, and i said what is the importance of the recovery act and the 100 military advisors that the president sent over there, and his response to me was game changer. so this is a game changer. we can't pull out now. and that is not a weaner reference. >> stephanie: thank you very much. jim if you watch the documentary, you will have an even bigger crush on her than you do now. because it's a really good film. >> thank you. >> stephanie: there was a story about emergency workers having sex in -- >> it's a an emergency. >> yes, it's called emergency sex, because relief workers are having tons of sex -- >>
