Bill Richardson: Save Darfur by…joining the ICC?

Democrat presidential candidate Bill Richardson’s plan for saving Darfur is a boilerplate special until point 6:
6. Last, America should join the International Criminal Court.
That’s it. No explanation for how ceding American sovereignty and making American troops subject to the whims of international bureaucrats and judges will help save a single life in Darfur. Because it won’t.
Darfur is the new “free Tibet,” a way for liberals to make themselves feel good about caring about people halfway around the world, and a way to make themselves look good to the cocktail set. And it’s also a useful way to use sympathy to try to slip destructive Trojan horses past American voters.
