I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK
Luxembourg could kick the hell out of the Sudan..
What is going on is extermination of non-arabs by the Arab north.
The south experienced the same thing in the 80's..remember Live Aid, etc?
In the end they fought back and managed to at the very least cause the Government to go kill those in the west(Darfur region) for a while...took them 20 years and mountains of dead.
The Sudan is not a unified nation the South for all intents is a seperate nation. WHich coudl be useful in any attmept ot sotp the Genocdie.
Oh well..UN has declared it "Ethnic Cleansing" and an "Unfortunate Circumstance" IOW in plain English nothing is going to be done about it.
Past all that..
"He is only killing his own people"
"USA has no business sticking its nose into others affairs"
"If these people do not like it they should stand up themselves and fight"
The Sudan is an enemy state which prior to 9/11 hosted Osama bin Laden. Its government not only supplies and supports various Terrorist but is also actively involved in Genocide. Hell... even Clinton bombed them once.
BTW our allies are being defeated by al-Qaeda in Somalia and we are doing nothing of any worth to help them either.

The problem is the Security Council, and always has been. As long as countries with a bias in this matter have the veto, there will be no collective action to enforce the ICC's ruling. Without that collective mandate, it will be difficult for any one country to launch an operation to take him out without suffering consequences from the other entangled nations.
Assassinating him will simply replace him with the next in line . The policies of the state will not change. in fact they will use his assassination as propaganda to intensify the genocide occuring. Its the same flaw wiht the just assassinate Saddam nonsense most of the left played in the inital months of Iraq and Afghanistan.
The solution to this Genocide is War. War as in armies invading, occupying territory, removing the government. etc.
Until the "west" decides to fight this War(Sudan is as much an enemy of ours as the Taliban and al Qaeda..they are already part of this war) as a War and not "politically correct police actions against upset people who we need to understand" the Genocide in Darfur will continue until the Sudanese government feels its done..then they will go back to slaughtering those in the South.
Welcome to the bloodiest and largest non-world war* world war in history.
*-World Wars are shooting wars between major powers.

I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.
