no justice and no peace

Yesterday came word that ICC prosecutor Luis Moreno-Ocampo will introduce genocide charges on Omar Hassan al-Bashir, making him the first sitting head of state to be charged with genocide who wasn't on the verge of being thrown out of power (as opposed to Slobodan Milosevic and Charles Taylor).

I'd comment, but an excellent analysis piece in the New York Times has done my work for me by noting what a catastrophic idea this is.
