Is she going to add an Iraqi child to her collection?

Don’t forget to ask the Christians in Iraq if they are being threatened and murdered by the proponents of the religion of peace.

I won't hold my breath that she goes to Anbar, let alone visits the troops. Sigh. The UN aspect of her trip was sadly all I needed to hear. While it is good she is moved to action by human suffering, she can't save the world. She's young enough that the point is moot, but I wonder if she would have visited the Iraqi people terrorized by Saddam to illustrate their plight, or the Kurds, or the people of the Sudan during the Clinton years when the genocide was ramping up fairly unnoticed by global eyes? Well, hindsight is 20/20.

Her children should be her cause-celebre now, she really would be better served spending more of her time parenting her children while they are so young and a little less time campaigning for UN-leftie causes, imho.

I think they're going to be sorry when all those kids hit their teenage years.

I agree, because it seems she is most often off at some locale championing human rights or filming in some exotic location, with the little humans charged to her care nowhere to be found. Something that won't do them much good now or later. She would do well to parent and nurture them now while they are so very young. We adults can hold off for her to wow us with her human rights issues at a later point. Zahara and Maddox and Shiloh and Pax may not be able to.

“That’s one ugly woman.”

Thank you. I was beginning to think I was the only one who thought that.

I especially admire all the lovely tats she is sporting. I’d like to get a look at those in about 40 years.

Oops, I forgot, she was busy making out with her brother, numerous women, and wearing a vile of blood around her neck.

You mean vial of blood...

Ummmmmmm, Nope, you got it right, vile.

My bad ;-)

Her father, Jon Voight visits the troops regularly. He was a guest on Laura Ingraham recently. Quite conservative, actually. I’m glad she’s bringing attention to the plight of several million Iraqi refugees who are being run out because they supported us.

The article states that she did meet with American forces privately. The refugees are in reality, another aspect of the war.

Oh, that's right, Thompson isn't a 'candidate' yet is he?

Hey, be fair. His local boosters are putting together an exploratory committee that is getting together some focus groups who are putting out some feelers to the press to test the feasibility of a press conference that will announce that there is the possibility that at some point he might consider running. Or not.

Well, it just screams "commitment" to me.

“on another note, what are the odds she’ll buy another baby to complete here rainbow colored collection?)”

I would say the odds are very good. Perhaps she’ll adopt a Muslim child and after a few years all of the rest will be converted.

John Voight must wonder sometimes what happened to his daughter? He is quite an articulate and thoughtful actor. She on the other hand, appears to be weird re this child collecting fetish.

“Perhaps our Southern neighbors would consider staying home a couple weeks so we could save the lives of those who have befriended us.”

Good point.

“. I’m glad she’s bringing attention to the plight of several million Iraqi refugees who are being run out because they supported us.”

Me too. She just as easily could be lying on a beach somewhere sipping a few Mai Tais(sp). Got to give her credit for going over there.

such vitriol... does the article really inspire this...

she’s there to draw attention to a humanitarian crisis... there is one there... all war is such... is she protesting america’s involvement?... i admit i have no interest in the article, but what i get from the posts is so much hatred and knee jerk reaction, one would think she spit in our soldiers face...

Wow. She’s so thin she’s almost unrecognizable form the last flick I saw her in. Good for her for stopping in to see the guys and gals.

GENEVA - Angelina Jolie visited Iraq on Tuesday to meet with refugees and U.S. troops in the country.

Jolie, who is a goodwill ambassador for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, made the visit during a two-day trip to the region, the U.N. refugee agency said Tuesday.

The statement said the 32-year-old actress met with displaced Iraqis in neighboring Syria on Monday before crossing into Iraq for a few hours Tuesday “to see firsthand the plight of hundreds of thousands of families uprooted by the ongoing conflict.”

“I have come to Syria and Iraq to help draw attention to this humanitarian crisis and to urge governments to increase their support for UNHCR and its partners,” the Geneva-based agency quoted Jolie as saying.

Jolie traveled to the Al-Waleed refugee camp on the Iraqi side of the border and spoke to some of the 1,200 Iraqis living there before visiting a contingent of U.S. troops in the area, the agency said.

Looks like it says here she’s visited some troops. I would love to see some pictures!

Where was she during the humanitarian crisis when Saddam gassed the Kurds? And why not Darfur? With Brad going to NOLA for the Katrina anniversary and Ang in Iraq, this looks like a slick liberal PR scheme to get (according to liberals) Bush’s failures back in the spotlight.

This is the first time actually reading about her trip. I was hoping to hear that she WAS visiting troop. But she starts her trip visiting refugees in Syria of all places? Anyone know the answer to this: What are the odds that an Iraqi refugee living in Syria was a supporter of Saddam? When I think of Syria in relation to Iraq, I think of things like Saddam's Fedayeen.

BTW, I don't suppose she'll bother visiting the Palestinian refugees while she's there? I'd really like to hear of someone checking out the conditions of the Palestinians in countries other than Israel. You know, just for comparison.

http://www.iraqthemodel.com

has a very recent account of his family's return from a vacation in Syria. He states that there has been an incredibly positive change in the ability to safely make this journey. Important to this thread, he says this:

"It's supply and demand 101, this change in cost reflects a change in demand on the two ends of the route suggesting that a good percentage of Iraqis who flooded Syria in the beginning of the summer season were just trying to escape the summer heat and enjoy a simple vacation, like my family did. It doesn't mean a refugees issue doesn't exist, but it does mean that Iraqis could sometimes be just normal tourists...
