NITED NATIONS -- Sudan ordered at least 10 humanitarian groups -- including Pacific Northwest-based Mercy Corps -- expelled from Darfur on Wednesday after the International Criminal Court issued an arrest warrant for the country's president.

"To knowingly and deliberately deprive such a huge group of civilians of the means to survive is a deplorable act," he said. "Humanitarian assistance has nothing to do with the ICC [International Criminal Court] proceedings. To punish civilians because of the decision of the ICC is a grievous dereliction of the government's duty to protect its own people."

The UN Commissioner said it very well. This man has done everything possible to prove himself a criminal. He should be arrested tried and serve what ever sentence the court deems fit.

I wonder if the aid groups were ordered out for another reason, like their own protection. Could it be that the UN may go in with troops to grab this thug? I hope so and soon, before the people have to go without for any longer.

The UN needs to do more than protest. Send the troops in to allow these people the get all the help that these agencies are giving. These people need food, water, shelter, etc. Where is human dignity in this country?

Once again the west is proving to be lax in it's world policing. We pretend to be the moral guardians of the universe, but usually fail to act or at least postpone action as long as possible unless it affects our finances. If Darfur had oil, we would have already occupied it and relieved the ruler of his command. The whole situation is a travesty!
