Maddox's Army-Style B-day Bash

Maddox's Army-Style B-day Bash

Life & Style Weekly has the exclusive pictures from Brad Pitt‘s birthday surprise for son Maddox.

It all started out on Friday when Angelina Jolie brought Maddox with her to work at LA Studios. This was a distraction so that Brad Pitt could ready the house for Mad‘s 6th birthday bash. Here’s what the L&S insiders had to say:

On the parents doing the party planning: “Brad and Angelina were heavily involved in the preparations. They mapped out and set up everything themselves.”

On Braddox’s relationship: “Brad and Maddox have a unique father-son bond. Brad came into Maddox’s life at precisely the right time. He needed a strong male influence as a role model. And after all those years of wanting a child, Brad was bouncing off the walls with excitement.”

On the fun waterslide: “It was huge! Brad made sure the plastic was good and wet before anyone went down. He even inflated some rafts.”

On Brad readying the troops for Capture the Flag: “Brad really got into it,” says the insider. “He was decked out in military fatigues and a helmet. Even Angie and Zahara painted their faces!”

On the gifts Brad and Angie bought Maddox (dirt bike, a leather jacket and a helmet): “Mad wants to be a biker, just like his dad. He’s always going into Brad’s closet and strutting around in Brad’s hats!”

    Brangelina’s Kid Can Be Yours for Only $1.99

    Brangelina Kid Price Tag: $1.99

    Maddox Jolie-Pitt gets his first magazine cover this week courtesy of Life&Style Weekly. The Bauer publication, based in New Jersey, took pictures of Maddox’s sixth birthday party from a boat thanks to a telescopic lens and an intrusive international photo agency.

    Even though Angelina Jolie has sold pictures of her kids in the past — to People, notably — and for lots of money, this time she was had at her own game. The pictures show Jolie and Brad Pitt cavorting with all their kids — Maddox, Zahara and Shiloh — mostly unaware that the festivities were being recorded for posterity.

    The result is a front-cover full-page shot of Maddox, complete with the magazine’s round yellow price tag that reads in black: “1.99.”

    It’s unclear who’s become more devalued: the magazines for conducting business formerly left to the National Enquirer and Star, or the parents for putting the dare into the air. Because that’s what it became the minute Jolie allowed her kids into the market.

    “This is no different than Us’ [magazine] recent cover with Shiloh or anything with Suri Cruise,” one tabloid expert said.

    Whether or not the Pitts can or would sue Bauer for invasion of privacy, the damage is certainly done. And it also shows that the rules have changed. Children used to be off limits. Then it became a game among paparazzi to get the first pictures of babies after they were born. Now all bets are off.

    Because Jolie has let People and others have sanctioned, staged pictures of her kids, paparazzi now feel they have the right to snap away.

    Michael Jackson almost looks a good parent at this point, making sure his kids’ faces are covered up all the time. I said almost.

    Interestingly, the Maddox birthday pictures were originally being featured online Wednesday as a link to TV’s “Access Hollywood.”

    “Everyone wanted them,” an insider told me. “All the shows did features.”

    But I’m told the NBC syndicated celeb show backed off from actually airing them when they realized the legal brouhaha in the making. And by midday Wednesday, there was no mention of the shoot at either “Access” site or the ones belonging to either “Extra,” “ET’ or “The Insider.”

    The reports of SLIPT ARE TRUE. After the Photo-op he is gone gone gone.

  • UN troops for Darfur authorized

    .UNITED NATIONS (Reuters) – The U.N. Security Council authorized on Tuesday up to 26,000 troops and police for Darfur and approved the use of force to protect civilians in Sudan’s arid western region.

    Expected to cost more than $2 billion in the first year, the combined “hybrid” U.N.-African Union operation aims to quell violence in Darfur, where more than 2.1 million people have been driven into camps and an estimated 200,000 have died over the past four years.

    U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, who conducted months of talks with Khartoum, described the unanimously approved resolution as “historic and unprecedented” and said the mission would “make a clear and positive difference.”

    The resolution, number 1769, invokes Chapter 7 of the U.N. Charter, under which the United Nations can authorize force. The measure allows the use of force for self-defense, to ensure the free movement of humanitarian workers and to protect civilians under attack, but acknowledges Sudan’s sovereignty.

    The resolution, which has been watered down several times, no longer allows the new force to seize and dispose of illegal arms, saying it can only monitor such weapons.

    Sudan’s U.N. ambassador, Abdalmahmood Abdalhaleem Mohamad, told reporters, “I am comfortable with the resolution.” He said the use of Chapter 7 was limited and that negotiators “went to great lengths to satisfy our concerns.”

    The resolution authorizes up to 19,555 military personnel and 6,432 civilian police, which if deployed would be the world’s largest peacekeeping force.

    U.S. SANCTIONS?

    U.S. Ambassador Zalmay Khalilzad called on Sudan’s president, Omar Hassan al-Bashir, to provide “maximum cooperation” in deploying the peacekeepers or face sanctions.

    “If Sudan does not comply with this resolution, the United States will move for the swift adoption of unilateral and multilateral measures,” Khalilzad told the council.

    “Now Sudan faces a choice,” he said. “Sudan can choose the path of cooperation or defiance.”

    Visiting British Prime Minister Gordon Brown made a similar sanctions threat in a speech earlier in the day.

    The revised text, however, dropped a threat to impose further sanctions if Khartoum balked.

    China’s U.N. ambassador, Wang Guangya, who chaired the meeting, said the purpose of the resolution was to launch the hybrid force “rather than threaten sanctions.”

    The measure was negotiated by Britain and France and also sponsored by Italy, Belgium, Congo Republic, Slovakia and Peru.

    Asked why Washington did not join the sponsors, Khalilzad said, “The important thing is that we voted for it and we support it.” Diplomats speculated the United States did not approve of some modifications in the draft.

    Rape, looting, murder and government bombardment drove millions from their homes in Darfur, where mostly non-Arab rebels took up arms in early 2003, accusing Khartoum of neglecting their desert region. The rebels have now split into a dozen groups, many fighting one another.

    Infantry soldiers will be drawn mainly from African nations unless not enough Africans can be recruited. Personnel from elsewhere in the world are expected to be used for specialized engineering and in command headquarters.

    The resolution calls on member states to finalize their contributions to the new force, called UNAMID, the United Nations-African Union Mission in Darfur, within 30 days. UNAMID would incorporate the under-equipped and under-financed 7,000 African Union troops now in Darfur.

    Sudan, after months of hesitation, has agreed to the troop numbers, but U.N. officials expect it will take a year to get the entire force in place. Khartoum also has to agree to allow units from individual countries into Sudan.

    The new headquarters should be running by October 31, and U.N. members were urged to cover costs as soon as possible for the AU troops. The combined force is to be in charge of all operations by December 31.

    Jane Holl Lute, an assistant secretary-general for peacekeeping, said the department would work “non stop” between now and the end of the year, to get accommodations, fuel and communication as well as General Assembly financial approval.

    “It is an unprecedented undertaking, in scale, complexity and importance,” she told reporters.

    Dear Gossips,

    Away with family on a mountain for a few days, very limited internet, but good to see not much has changed: Britney’s crazy knows no depths, Denise Richards is still a scheming greedy douche, with sperm hunter now added to her illustrious list of attributes, and the tabloids continue to erroneously proclaim the death of Pitt Porn.

    Strangely reassuring.

    Jen.A. must be such a bloody idiot to delay having kids with Brad! If I was married to this Adonis, i would have had a baby tout- suite! Brad has proven to the world what a devoted father he is to his brood of children. I can see why Angie loves him – men whom are devoted fathers are the sexiest in the world! If more men were devoted family men like Brad, the world wouldn’t be so screwed up- I hate deadbeat dads, who abandon their children & responsibilities! Brad comes from a good family, so therefore, he knows how to be a good dad. Bravo Brad!

  • ??

    Great pics and I can see that this couple is really into their children but, I thought Angelina wanted to keep her kids away from playing with anything that related to war in any way?? Capture the Flag was a game my special forces Uncle used to have us play at family gatherings.

    Jolie tells French mag “Brad must accept my mood swings”

    The magazine reveals that the bizarre conversation offered candid revelations that all is not perfect in their relationship. When asked how Brad can keep her happy, Angelina replies that he must “accept my mood swings…know how to cope with a crisis and be a good father to my kids.”

    ***

    The article notes that it is disturbing that she uses the word “my” when referring to their children. While Angelina adopted Maddox, 6, Pax, 3, and Zahara, 2, on her own, Brad has filed papers to adopt the kids and they all have the surname Jolie-Pitt. The couple also has a biological daughter, Shiloh, 14 months, but Angelina clearly doesn’t see Brad as an equal parent.

    “Using that pronoun ‘my’ says it all,” relationship expert Dr. Gilda Carle, who does not treat the stars, tells In Touch. “It’s saying you really don’t have that much of a partnership, you don’t share the role of parent with me. I suspect, if this is where she’s heading, she’ll be heading out the door.” Angelina also admits some of her shortcomings in the Public interview, saying Brad is “cool, playful and organized — completely the opposite of me.”

    Progress at last in Darfur

    By Michael Gerson

    WASHINGTON – After four years of brutal raids, ethnic cleansing and systematic rape in Darfur, Sudan – and nearly three years after the Bush administration declared this a genocide – the U.N. Security Council has finally approved a credible peacekeeping force. For 2 million displaced people in the camps, this is a wisp of hope on the horizon. For 200,000 of the dead, it comes too late.

    The most disturbing part of the latest U.N. negotiations was the continued leverage exercised by the regime in Khartoum, which has a long history of mass killing. In the polished manners of the United Nations, blood on your hands is not a disqualification for a seat at the diplomatic table. With the expected help of China, and the disappointing support of France and Britain, the Sudanese envoy weakened the mandate of the peacekeeping force – no weapons are to be seized from the militias – and removed the threat of sanctions if Khartoum fails to cooperate. The regime protested that its “sovereignty” over the people of Darfur must be respected – which is really the sovereignty of lions over the herds they hunt.

    But even this diluted resolution is useful. It authorizes what will be the largest peacekeeping operation in the world – upward of 25,000 soldiers and police under joint U.N. and African Union control. It sets specific dates for the transition to that force. And it mandates the protection of both aid workers and civilians.

    Khartoum’s grudging acceptance of U.N. peacekeepers is the result of global pressure. For all its tactical confusions, Sarkozy’s France is tougher on the regime than was Chirac’s France. China can no longer be too obvious in its support of Khartoum, or it would risk the boycott of its Olympics next year. And a new round of American sanctions on Sudan has begun to bite, pressuring international banks to stop accepting Khartoum’s billions in oil money.

    Is this momentum real? There are two benchmarks that will help answer this question, one way or the other.

    In October, the United Nations must have its headquarters operational in Darfur, and take over financing African troops already on the ground.

    By December at the latest, the U.N. will need to have in place what is called the “heavy support package” – hospitals, attack helicopters, 2,000 new African troops, and 3,000 police. It will also need to know which countries will contribute the rest of the troops to the peacekeeping force.

    If the United Nations has met these realistic goals by New Year’s Eve, it will be a good beginning, a sign of seriousness. But the signals out of Khartoum are mixed. The United Nations has informed U.S. officials that it is already getting resistance from the regime on logistical issues. If the Sudanese continue to play these games, as they have done before, there will need to be penalties.

    The United States has immediate responsibilities as well – to provide airlift support through NATO, training for command staff, communications and computer equipment, and generators. America is obligated to pay for 27 percent of the cost of the peacekeeping force, which will probably require a supplemental funding bill from Congress in 2008.

    But the implementation of this resolution is, above all, a test for the United Nations. In dealing with Darfur, U.N. officials are determined to learn from their historical mistakes. The problem is choosing which mistake to learn from.

    U.N. military planners want to avoid the debacle of Somalia which began in 1992, when peacekeepers entered a chaotic situation piecemeal and eventually left in defeat and failure. So in Darfur they want the U.N. intervention to be large and decisive – a “big bang” – even if that means the timeline is delayed.

    Another U.N. failure is worth recalling and avoiding: Rwanda in 1994. While waiting for perfect circumstances to intervene, the world did little, and now lives haunted by a million ghosts.

    No historical analogy is exact. But the Darfur genocide is closer to Rwanda than Somalia. It requires the urgent establishment of security first.

    For all the Americans who have worked and prayed for Sudan over the years, for all the churches and synagogues with banners that call us to conscience, the time to push has arrived. There are many complex steps of negotiation and reconciliation between government and rebels down the road. But we should begin with one step: 5,000 new police and troops in Darfur by the end of this year
