Skip to comments.George Clooney in Southern Sudan over war worries
Posted on 10/07/2010 2:58:28 PM PDT by Niuhuru
American actor George Clooney is visiting the little known region of Southern Sudan. The U.N. Security Council arrived to a raucous welcome on Wednesday, and the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum also made a recent trip here.
The high-level visits are putting the spotlight on the Texas-sized area of Sudan that is far less known to Americans than the western region of Darfur, where mass atrocities have been committed over the last decade.
Southern Sudan is three months from a Jan. 9 independence vote that could see Africa's largest country break in two. The vote _ and the potential of a new north-south war because of it _ are the reason behind the rash of visits.

Pretentious spoiled Westerners making a nuisance of themselves.
I think we should spread a rumor there that Loony Clooney plans to make a truthful movien about MoHamHead.l
movien = movie
That would be interesting. If he gets killed, then Hollywood will have to face that deranged Muzzies decided to kill one of their own and they won’t be able to blame Bush.
How very Christian of you. What do you care what George Clooney does? He basically got unlimited funds and he choses to go someplace and try to help people that desperately need it. Have you ever spent any time in Africa? I have, and let me tell you, nothing you have seen will prepare you...
Uh - considering that I'm hardly a christian, I sure hope not ;).

South Africa? That human dungheap? Necklacing and cadavers in the streets? The islamic foothold in Africa that no one talks about? That Africa??
Go whine to someone else.
I was thinking more like him catching a stray bullet.
I don’t know why so many women like him.I don’t think he’s that attractive at all,especially since he made that comment about Charlton Heston awhile back.The jerk never apologized for the comment.
He is a brain-dead idiot. Being a man, I can’t comment on his looks.
I am also a Powers Boothe fan.
Powers Boothe skates circles around Clooney any day.That and he has many more brains than CLooney. PB keeps his political views to himself.
PB also has much more talent.
He was amazing as Jim Jones. It must have been very tough for PB to take on that role.
He played a PI on a TV series on cable around 20 years ago, and he was outstanding in the part.
I have a few episodes of the show on DVD. I think the show was originally on HBO.
He’s such an idiot. “Hey,look at me! I’m a do-gooder celebrity! I’m important!”
I’m going to be very cynical when I say this, but the reason I think women like him is because he skillfully markets himself as a “Rhett Butler” rascal and women for some reason fall for that. But pay attention to the women he actually dates vs. the women that find him funny and charming. He dates hookers, cocktail waitresses, women who aren’t anything and since he’s an actor, these are the only types of women who are ‘beneath’ him in terms of status. They are the only ones who are able and willing to throw thier lives away to cavort with him and travel.
So many think he should date ‘better,’ but better women have better options than an actor with a bad reputation. What decent woman would want to be known initially as his latest ‘piece’ or be initially given the third degree over being some scummy mooch. He’s also ridiculously stupid and has the inability to be the ‘lesser’ in any relationship. What smart woman would want to demean herself by making him look smart and walking two steps behind? Have you SEEN the way these wives of actors stand and pose? As if their husbands are freaking heads of state!
He’s no more than a scummy ornament for the UN.
He is no Clark Gable,that’s for sure.He’s not much of an actor,either.As a woman I wonder why other women like him,’cause I don’t think that he’s great-looking at all. I don’t think he has any charm at all,either. I wasn’t aware that he dated hookers,though.
he’s dated a Vegas “hostess” and lets be frank, it’s not like he’s someone who dates nice girls. You must be a smart woman since you see right through the hype. Perhaps it’s the thought that since he won’t marry, women think he’s been burned and needs the ‘right’ woman.
I’m not impressed with money,cars,big homes,etc.,whether or not the man is famous. I’m not one of those women who flips my lid over that type,including Clooney. A man can have all of the above but be lacking in brains,a sense of humor,honesty,etc.
Money can’t buy brains or style, or decency or a lost reputation. Besides, one thing I do notice, is that like a lot of actors he has relentless ambition and not the brains enough to fulfill his ambition. Bad warning sign.
