Omar al-Bashir is at it again

If the genocide in Darfur was not enough, now Omar al-Bashir is dropping bombs on South Kordofan. According to the BBC,

In other words, the North-South conflict is sadly not over.

The political blog-o-sphere is full of chatter about very complicated, subtle issues, such as economics, climate change, and health care. This issue, by contrast, just isn't that complicated. A nation that cannot find peace under its own government is a nation deprived of basic justice. The only question is whether our leaders are willing to do anything about it. See the link above for more details.
