Perhaps the time has now come for those Western celebrities who are campaigning to stop the pogrom being carried out by Omar Bashir and Co. in Darfur, to stage Live Aid-style worldwide pop concerts, to raise money to set up a special fund.
The scorched-earth terror tactics employed by Omar Bashir and the murderous regime he leads in Sudan, to ethnically cleanse Darfur (through the agency of the Janjaweed), has turned the western part of Sudan into a version of hell on earth. It is time humanity took effective action to halt this African Holocaust once and for all.
If there existed a special fund to reward those who arrest persons indicted by the International Criminal Court (ICC) for committing crimes against humanity, Africa will quickly see the end of such atrocities, throughout the continent.
For example, if the fund could put up a bounty of say US$5 million to reward anyone who arrests and delivers persons, such as Omar Bashir, indicted by the ICC, to the court's jurisdiction, we will soon see a rapid end to the abominable and unspeakable acts of savagery being carried out by the government of Sudan and its well-armed agents, in Darfur.
If such a fund existed, Omar Bashir would not dare cock a snook at humankind, by continuing to bomb villages in Darfur; make it virtually impossible for the AU/UN peacekeeping force to function properly; and recruit, train, arm and deploy its military's special-purpose vehicle for ethnic cleansing, the Janjaweed.
If such a fund existed, mass-murderers and those committing crimes against humanity in Africa will be swiftly arrested.
Notorious individuals on the continent pursuing blood-thirsty careers such as: the Ugandan rebel leader Joseph Kone; the rebel Tutsi Congolese leader General Enkunda; Rwanda's leader General Kagame, who is the main sponsor of General Enkunda and thus indirectly responsible for the atrocities committed by Enkunda's army in eastern DR Congo, will all be brought to justice, finally - thank goodness!
