Sanctions in Sudan

The United Nations voted today to apply sanctions against four "alleged" Sudanese war criminals. This was possible because the Russians and Chinese abstained from the vote.

It's good to see that they have achieved some acknowledgement of Sudanese crimes within the U.N. However, given the amount of work that was required to achieve this minor step, it doesn't leave much hope for a serious response that could actually have an impact.
