Sudan leader: No international court can touch me

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20090318/ap_on_re_mi_ea/ml_sudan_darfurKHARTOUM, Sudan A defiant Sudanese president rallied Arab supporters in Darfur Wednesday by saying no war crimes court or the U.N. Security Council can touch even "an eyelash" on him despite an international order for his arrest.
Speaking to thousands at a rally in the southern Darfur town of Nyala, Omar al-Bashir denounced the West for allegedly seeking to "create chaos in Sudan" and trying to split Darfur from the rest of the country.
This was al-Bashir's second visit to Darfur since the International Criminal Court issued a warrant for his arrest on March 4 on charges of war crimes in the western Sudanese region.
The Netherlands-based court accuses al-Bashir of orchestrating atrocities against civilians in Darfur, where his Arab-led government has been battling ethnic African rebels since 2003. Up to 300,000 people have been killed and 2.7 million have been driven from their homes.
Many fear the warrant could unleash violence against civilians and the joint U.N.-African Union mission in Darfur.
This guy is lucky the Dubya/Cheney team isn't in office anymore... or hi-ho it's off to war we go, for we found another terrorist.

My thoughts have usually lay within the realm of leave 'em be. Eventually a people will get sick and tired of their despot and over throw them. They'll get tired of being murdered and driven from their homes and left to starve in the desert. Ethiopia and Somalia have the same thing going on. Leave 'em be they'll take care of themselves.

Tragic and horrifying to see/hear millions are starving and dying within one's country. It'd be bad here in the states if it ever happened... but it wouldn't happen... we wouldn't allow it. Same goes for the indigenous people of those countries where one man dreams himself of being king and lord over all.

Eventually a people will revolt. We saw it in France a couple centuries ago.

The US wouldn't have invaded. What's there of real value?

The US did not invade directly, but we aided and supported the Ethiopian invasion of Somalia in 2006. There is blood on our hands here.

al-Bashir is talking out his hindquarters here, echoing the squeaks of many murderous predecessors.

As long as he confines himself to the boundless pleasures and splendor of Sudan, he won't be arrested...... well, and as long as he remains in power. Even if he should survive the all but certain overthrow, he will lose the military means of keeping the International Court away.... and one way or another, it'll be Judgment Day.

He is completely correct. Despite the efforts of George Clooney, and while many are grieved by what has and is happening in Darfur, it will NEVER be a major thing, either on the news or on the agenda of the UN. Why? Because, the bad guys there are Muslim, and the world's "Leaders" are afraid to speak out about atrocities committed by Muslims.
