Sudan President upset about ICC warrant throws hissy-fit. Thousands put in jepordy.

Posted by clark128 on March 12, 2009

In case you aren’t already aware dear reader, Sudan is a country in Africa. Within its borders is a region called Sudan, which according to most experts is a terrible vacation spot, due to the rampant disease, lack of food, and constant warfare. The region has received much attention in the media by top name celebrities such as George Clooney, Angelina Jolee, and Bono. It has also been the target of much humanitarian aid. Unfortunately, it seems the aid is getting cut off, which will probably lead to several hundreds if not thousands of deaths.

“But why is the aid going to stop” you may ask yourself. Well, it all has to do with one individual. President Omar al-Bashir.

You see Omar was sitting one day in his beautiful home wondering to himself why anyone would call him a war criminal, and in a moment of serendipity he received a phone call from the Netherlands based International Crimes Court, telling him he had a warrant on his head for supporting a group of warriors to completely wreck Darfur. This made Omar angry! In a rage he fled to his room and wrote about it on his Myspace, then ordered all the organizations aiding the suffering to get out for helping the ICC convict him.*

But wait? Did these organizations help convict the President?

Well, they say they didn’t, but we all know that Doctors without Borders are probably some of the biggest liars on the planet.

So, most of the refugees in Darfur are now in a lot of trouble, as well as a few of the volunteers helping there. You see, recently a group of three westerners were kidnapped by armed guards. President Omar insists that he has nothing to do with it, but his Foreign Minister did mention that the ICC’s ruling would promote “lawlessness”. So, the Sudanese Government DEFINITELY did not have anything to do with it.

Doctors without Borders are a bunch of Liars, and a dictator is the only one telling the truth. I’ll let you be the judge of how much you believe this one.

*President Omar may not have a Myspace

    Humanitarian aid is one of the most essential things. SHort term aid that goes directly to the people in need is of an utmost importance. Yet I have not yet read, but want to, this fascinating book called Dead Aid, on the failure of long term aid to more often than not countries in Africa, which have become entirely dependant on the West. In the 1950’s and 60’s the people of Africa were proud and hopeful of the future of their decolonized continent. They had pluck and energy manifested in the tremendous anumber of students coming to America, such as Obama’s father. Yet they have lost this and many think it is not because we have given to little but because we have given too much, at least too much in the wrong way. Countries like Botswana, though, went against the swift current of aid and formed a highly capatilistic system. Surprisingly Botswana is not one of the many countries in Africa facing inept and undulgent regimes but a rather wealthy regime but with wealth disperesed. Aid has not caused all the problems in the Sudan but many of these regimes have leaders that take that long term aid and stick it in theri Swiss back accounts, leaving the people to die deaths that would be considered torture if done to an animal.
