    Sudan leader: No international court can touch me

    Sudan leader: No international court can touch me

    KHARTOUM, 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 near 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.

    His remarks reflected his confidence amid support from the Arab League, whose chief Amr Moussa said this week that the 22-nation group will not act on the International Criminal Court's arrest warrant when al-Bashir flies to an Arab summit in Qatar at the end of the montth.

    "No ICC or Security Council or any other party will change our path or touch an eyelash in our eye," al-Bashir shouted at the rally in Niyala's nomad Sabadou area. "The president of Sudan is not elected by Britain or America. Sudan is an independent country."

    I have a question for the pro-UN types:
    What do you suggest the UN do about this guy and his defiance of the UN and ICC?

    The arrest warrant will hurt any efforts to promote peace and stability in Sudan. I think the international court could have done this at a better time.

    Invade Sudan, overthrow Bashir and topple his government, establish a free government with a large portion of seats granted to natives of Darfur. Seems to always work

    And how many ****ing guys just like this idiot are there? In all these third-world toilets, there are these guys that love to parade around in military uniforms when their not in the military and love to commit vicious crimes against their own people. Mugabe, Saddam, Bashir... to name a few

    I seriously think we should get Blackwater to do it. Have some millionaire or some other dictator hire assassins quietly, in a way that leaves them safe legally. This guy wasn't commiting genocide on the up-and-up, and I don't see why he should even get a fair warning of his upcoming dethroning.

    Wow, your right. I forgot entirely about using mercenaries. Not just blackwater though... but in a testament to the success of mercenaries against african irregulars, look up the rebellion in angola during the early/mid 90s.

    Anyways, using special forces from several western countries in cohesion with mercenaries to stop the genocide in darfur and then to embolden a civil force to defend Darfur would work. As for the Sudanese president, I don't really know how to arrest him. Search for rivals and aid them... every one of these guys has enemies.

    Right out of the playbook of al-Bashir, the Chinese, and other thugs who only want this genocide to continue to go on. This is a clear case of genocide even if the AU and UN want to put their heads in the sand on that.

    When is this "better time"? When the people of Darfur are all dead/displaced? This is LONG OVERDUE.

    THough, sadly at this point, the Sudanese president is right that the court can't touch him. He will soon be attending the Arab League summit in Doha, and they have already said that they will NOT apprehend him and send him to competent court authorities.

    Democracy in Sudan wouldn't last one year.
    Most Sudanese don't recognize themselves as "Sudanese". That's a fairly Euro-Centric idea, Nationalism and such.

    Bashir is committing genocide upon the ethnic Africans and he needs to be stopped. Ideally he would be put on trial, but if that is not possible, killing him is not out of the question. The crimes he has committed cannot be allowed to continue.

    A Marine sniper team armed with a M-40A3 should have no problems reaching out and touching him.

    Thats what marines are for, they are problem solvers.

    Agreed.

    Al Bashir is a ****bag who needs to be stopped.

    He can turn himself into the Hauge or he can suffer the consequences.

    **** him and his terrorist regime.
