|Everybody concerns about justice in the World should be delighted because the call to submit the criminals in Sudan to the International Criminal Court(ICC) became a reality last Thrusday in the UN's corridors!|
The UN Security Council voted 11-0 to refer a sealed list of 51 people accused of crimes against humanity in the Sudanese Darfurian region to the ICC.
The USA, China, Brazil and Algeria abstained after the last minute wrangling led by the US to exempt its citizens from submission to the ICC, some media sources said.
Now the suprise at the UN was the abstention of the USA and China.
Each of those two countries has its own attitudes and interests towards the sitution in Sudan. The USA has always been the sole player in the International Channels to accuse
the Sudanese Dictatorial Regime of terrorism.
It launched an air-raids against a terorrist location in the capital city of Khartoum in 1998, nevertheless the air raids missed its targets.
That had happened because of the wrong information the USA received about the location of the terrorist factory.
Up to this point, the air raids on Khartoum were not as successful as those attacks led by the suspect terrorists against the American Ambassies in Nairobi and Dar-a-Salam.
So, what has happened today to encourage the USA to change its attitudes and be "neutral" at the Security Council during the last vote?!
Seems that the USA did not want the resolution to be a precedent and to be implemented Internationally so as not to take effects on the interantional American policy not in Sudan alone but in Iraq too.
The question is why Buch Administration afraid of such
investigations and discovery to crimes committed by any US citizen in the Darfurian case?
It's obvious that some of the Darfurian rebels has an American nationalities. But that's not the strong case, since the question is, is there any "American finger" in any
This situtaion declares very well that Buch Administration is not after justice and it's not up to its human tasks to protect human rights overseas.
Well, I can see well that during the corridor's talks, news was heard that China will use the Veto against any
resolution to submit those dictators to the ICC. But China chose to be "neutral" in the last vote.
This Chinese attitude indicates that China has been forced by the USA to withhold with the Veto. But China played the game through the American pressures in a manner that will
prevent any lose to its interests in the Sudanese Oil Industry.
Aha, Money talks too the same way as politics does!
A lot of people in Africa and the Middle East now believe that those International powers do not care about human rights. Their cry for human rights is only allegations to
hide their economical interests.
