All hail al-Bashir…or not

Fresh from his gigantic failure to mediate in the Ivory Coast Presidential crisis, former South African President and notorious AIDS-denialist Thabo Mbeki, today hailed the apparent statesmanship of International Criminal Court fugitive and notorius alleged humans-rights abuser, al-Bashir, President of Sudan.

Now isn’t that wonderful? One fucked-up, has-been politician paying tribute to another, who admittedly isn’t quite finished yet with fucking things up. The stuff of dreams…

And then there’s US Senator John Kerry who also joined the tribute chorus. Politicians! Can’t resist climbing on that old bandwagon, can they? Off course we all know that the Senator is probably licking his lips at the thought of all that oil in South Sudan that may become available to the good old US of A.

And what about our human rights basher (al-Bashir – his name’s kind of apt, don’t you think)? It’s only a matter of time before he starts persecuting any Christians still left behind in predominantly Islamic North Sudan after a potentially successful secession vote. He’s just licking his lips too…
