The World's Genocide Test

There's a good article in today's Washington Times about the International Criminal Court's case against Gen. Omar Bashir, president of Sudan. Bashir is charged with five crimes against humanity: murder, extermination, forcible transfer (of civilian populations), torture and rape. It is estimated that over 300,000 men, women, and children have been murdered by Bashir's military forces and their hired terrorists the janjaweed. Since Bashir expelled aid workers in Sudan two weeks ago, there is great concern that hunger and disease will now run rampant.

Read the full article here, then consider what you can do to voice your concern with your elected officials.
