Keeping the engine running in Johannesburg

The focus of the legal imbroglio at the African Union summit in South Africa is on Sudan President Omar al-Bashir. But Zimbabwe's Robert Mugabe, with at least one violence-tainted stolen election in his past, is there too, as Chairman of the African Union.

In fairness to Mugabe, who knows what buttons to push, he has pointed out the role of Iraq 2003 in undermining the legitimacy of the ICC indictment of Omar al-Bashir. That doesn't make Darfur any less of a war crime.
