    Jared finally puts up a thread for something that happened over 12 hours ago…the troll already lost their shite all day over it…yet they broke their necks getting to this new thread to shite all over it, too. It really is scary that people dedicate their lives to trolling these threads. Just how effed up does your life have to be to think that’s fun? That’s a rhetorical answer, trolls…and that includes you idiots from Duh-listed…

    Amazing woman. Take care Angie.

  • sunny

    I remember Iraqi government first refused to accept Syrian refugees into their country despite Syria (=Assad’s government) accepted huge amount of Iraqi refugees despite Syria had been kindly caring refugees from Iraq for a long time.
    After receiving global diplomatic pressure, Iraq finally decided to accept Syrian refugees.
    Since Sunni’s Sadam Husainwas taken down, Saudi / Qatar’s Sunni terrorist groups are causing massive bombing in Shia’s territories because Sunni is a minority group in Iraq and they lost their protector Sadam Hussain. Iraq is becoming closer to Shia’s Iran.

    No matter how good or bad you have it, wake up each day thankful for your life. Someone somewhere else is desperately fighting for theirs. unknown

    Rock on Angie and thank you. Prayers for the refugees and for peace, justice to those terrorist film makers who incite violence…hope you all get yours. http://www.latimes.com/news/local/la-me-0916-anti-muslim-film-20120916,0,1378473.story

    I think tomorrow is the last day of her UN trip. Safe trip back to home Angie.

  • BrangelinaFan

    That’s nice an all, but girlfriend better get out of that region now, given all of the very recent violence over there. Those folks doing all of that uprising don’t need a high profile target like her to help make their point of being angry with America over this independent film that has nothing to do with us. Come back home now to your kids and Brad, Angelina !! And safe travels.

  • sweet

    She is amazing. This is the longest UN mission she has taken. She must miss Brad and kids so much.

    May the good Lord reward you for all you do with long life and all your heart desires. May he always keep you and your beautiful family safe wherever you find yourself.

  • who

    This is a huge, long UN mission for her. Surely more responsibilties coming with her new position as Special Envoy. Angelina is truly amazing.

  • AGA

    I’m really proud to be a Angie/Brad fan right now. Am a little bit concerned by all the fighting and uprising’s going on over in that area. Some of these people would love a high profile target,just like the people who are after Prince Harry in Afghanistan. Hurry Home to your beautiful kids and Man,,Angelina!!

    I bet the loonifers are seething with anger because Angelina is again on the news and their barren hag idol is recuperating because of her BOTOX and face surgery to make her face more presentable and not looking like an OLD HAG!!

  • who

    Somebody who can’t write a coherent sentence, calling someone an idiot. That’s rich.

  • Catherine

    I hope she leaves there immediately after she visits refugee camp. That whole region is dangerous.

  • JEN THE HAG

    Baghdad (CNN) — Hollywood star Angelina Jolie is visiting Iraq’s semi-autonomous Kurdistan region Sunday after cancellation of her flight from Baghdad because of bad weather.
    -
    Jolie’s flight to Erbil was canceled Saturday, said Aurvasi Patel, assistant representative of the United Nation’s refugee agency. She made it there a day later.
    -
    After she met with Kurdish officials at Erbil airport, the actress met with refugees at a Syrian camp in Dohuk province.
    -
    Jolie — a special envoy for the refugee agency — met Iraqi returnees from Syria and senior government officials Saturday in Baghdad.
    -
    She discussed the situation of Syrian refugees in Iraq with Foreign Minister Hoshyar Zebari at his office in Baghdad, the ministry said in a statement.
    -
    They also talked about the Iraqi government’s efforts to meet the daily needs of refugees, the statement said.
    -
    Zebari told Jolie that the number of Syrian refugees who have fled the conflict to seek sanctuary in Iraq has risen to 21,000. Many are now living in Iraq’s western Anbar and northern Duhok provinces.
    -
    Zebari said nearly 31,000 Iraqis have also fled the war in Syria and returned to their native country.
    -
    Jolie also met with officials from the Iraqi ministry that deals with displaced people.
    -
    She has recently visited refugee camps in Turkey, Lebanon and Jordan to highlight suffering and the need for international humanitarian assistance.
    -
    While at the Zaatari refugee camp in Jordan on Tuesday, Jolie, who is herself raising six children with partner Brad Pitt, spoke of the horrors that children, many of them orphans, have witnessed in Syria.
    -
    “I am grateful to Jordan and the border countries for saving the lives (of those) who are dying in Syria. It’s an extraordinary thing. We encourage the international community to support the people here until one day they go back home,” she said.
    -
    Jolie, who was appointed a special envoy of U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees Antonio Guterres in April, accompanied Guterres on a visit to the Kilis camp in Turkey on Thursday.
    -
    She was previously a goodwill ambassador for the U.N. Refugee Agency, undertaking more than 40 field trips on its behalf.

    The bunch of school kids still bullying Angie! Gross tacky people

  • Rose

    This is to the troll and her side kick. I’m asking this question because a am desperately trying to figure out what you want from us coming on this thread everyday. First, there are hundreds of movie stars, actors with threads all over the internet, why come on a thread of someone you hate. I dislike the Dirtbag and I have never leave a comment on her thread. At times I check her thread out, once in a while when a troll peaks my curiosity with a comment troll leaves on BA thread.
    Second, don’t you trolls know the more you come on BA thread the more popular you make them. Notice, JJ has dropped the Dirtbag almost to the bottom of the first page side bar.
    Third, trolls why don’t you go ton the Dirtbags thread and support her. Don’t you noticed she has only two fans on her thread. If you love the SS so much, you have to support her.
    Fourth, Brad and Angie’s fans really don’t care what you have to say, really. You spend hours every day just to get thumb down. Why waste your time commenting, we don’t care.
    Fifth, you are a lier, you say, we come here because you talk about Ticky, well guess what, we have not talked Ticky for the longest time, yet you are here like a gnat, get a life. You know you are here because Angie is a beautiful woman, rich beyond measures, have beautiful children and a man who loves her to death. You are jealous because Angie is living the life you can only dream of and it’s what keeps you coming just to look at her beautiful face and cry. You are a poor excuse for a human being. You are filled with hate and jealousy, what a sad life you have, no friends and I’m sure your family shuns you because of your jealousy for everyone you come in contact with. You are lazy and jealous, go find a job and stop blaming others for your lot in life. also, get off the drugs, you have burnt out the few brain cells you have left, thats why you are stuck on stupid.

    Love Love this woman!! She looks so beautiful.

  • final symposium

    Poised….
    Elegant….
    Intelligent….
    Beautiful….
    No one compares to her in Hollywood.
    As Clint Eastwood said, she’s one of the most pulchritudinous people on the planet…. both externally & internally.

  • burst

    She has personality. Shes not very expressive though.

  • http://Ipad Susan

    With what she is seeing, what do you want her to express, should she standing up ringing her hands and crying?
    She is there to ask the Governments to keep their borders open and help the fleeing refugees, the UN High Commissioner promoted her because she is capable.

  • busted

    so much great news about Angie.. I have to say looking at the people in the camp they look healthy and clean. I’m so sad to read stupid comments. But it is just an example of how ignorant people are. Sad that some don’t know how hard it is for others. But as they say but by the grace of God go I. We in this country and others should always realize that anything can happen anywhere

    I so applaud Angie for caring. For her heart. for her ability to love.

    Forever a fan of this woman. I pray for her safe return to her family.
