Omar Hassan Ahmed Bashir Arrest Warrant Imminent for Darfur Genocide

According to news reports Sudanese President Omar Hassan Ahmed Bashir Arrest Warrant Imminent on charges of genocide and crimes against humanity? ICC Prosecutor Luis Moreno-Ocampo, of Argentina seems intent on pursuing the case against Sudan’s president once an arrest warrant is granted will be a first one on a sitting president.

Cooper of Darfur Hell on Earth links an article from Washington Post with powerful and compelling images of Sudan, and links to Be a Witness site where one can send a form email to news network to give more news coverage on the genocide in Darfur.

A risky and bold proposition no doubt to have a strongman in the seat of power subjected to arrest warrant, how this unfolds remains to be seen. This early Sudan's U.N. ambassador, Abdalmahmood Abdalhaleem Mohamad may give us a glimpse of things to come, a response he says that will “destroy” the international efforts to reach a peace settlement in Darfur. He was further quoted in a Washington Post article titled Sudan Leader To Be Charged With Genocide, Some U.N. Officials Fear as saying:
"Ocampo is playing with fire," Mohamad said. "If the United Nations is serious about its engagement with Sudan, it should tell this man to suspend what he is doing with this so-called indictment. There will be grave repercussions."
Sounds like a threat but said response are to be expected from a criminal regime who instead of turning over Ahmed Haroun for his crimes was promoted to oversee humanitarian affairs for the people he is charged with helping displaced in Darfur. Quoting Bashir in a gathering of Sudan's Popular Defense Forces shows what ICC prosecutor Luis Moreno-Ocampo is up against:
I swear to God, I swear to God, I swear to God, we will not hand over any Sudanese to the International Court
Will there be more bloodshed? The problem is impunity will not be stopped unless ICC steps in to make a move to stop them on their tracts.
