President Omar Al-Bashir will be visiting Chad this coming weekend to participate in the Summit of the Community of Sahel-Saharan States. The Sudanese president is subject to two arrest warrants for atrocities committed against his own people in Darfur.
The State Department estimates two million have died in southern Sudan while 300,000 are dead in Darfur thanks to bombing and attacks by the Sudanese armed forces and their militia proxies. The violence continues to this day.
The ICC is not seen as a free and fair court in Africa and decisions like the indictment of Omar Al-Bashir, as right as they are, tend to be seen as biased toward the continent. They will do more harm than good if not handled more diplomatically.
