    Hello. What have we here? If I had to make up a list of "Five Favorite Tyrants of the Early 21st Century", then Sudanese President Omar Al-Bashir would rank somewhere below Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and North Korean Dear Leader Kim Jong-Il. I'll leave it to the International Criminal Court to deliberate further about the massacres raging across Darfur, and perhaps Dr. Albert Mohler had the right idea in calling these atrocities "Mass Murder in Slow Motion" a little over three years ago.:

    To be certain, the ICC has left open the possibility of an amendment to the arrest warrant to include genocide, but I may be slightly ahead of them in opining that the Darfur crisis looks like a genocide already -- as might Daniel McKivergan in The Weekly Standard on February 17, 2005. Of course, as Joseph Loconte pointed out days after this arrest warrant, there isn't much in way of enforcement mechanisms for it. That accusation by Iran that this arrest warrant is a plot against the Islamic world will most likely speak for itself, as will demands by those kidnappers of three Doctors Without Borders workers to drop the warrant as well as by Sudanese Sharia attorney Suawiya Khader Al-Amin to issue a decree authorizing the murder of the prosecutor behind the warrant. Anyone interested in chewing over this arrest warrant and/or the event(s) behind it may feel free to fire away.
