Phool when you commented on David Cameron needs to look into camera not on Angelina, it is funny.

Also you comments on Angelina’s Marilyn Monroe stance very true.

Wartime Rape Can Be Stopped, Clinton Tells Sexual Assault Conference
=====================================================.
Filed: 6/11/14 at 6:35 AM | Updated: 6/11/14 at 7:32 AM
.

Clinton joined the conference by way of a video message Zoë Schlanger Former U.S. Secretary of State and likely 2016 presidential contender Hillary Clinton brought a message of hope to global summit on sexual violence in conflict held in London on Wednesday by way of a recorded video message broadcast to a room of hundreds of foreign ministers, human rights professionals, and United Nations staff.
.
“Rape and other forms of sexual violence are not inevitable in war, and we can end this scourge. When women’s bodies become battlefields, when children are mutilated and sold into sexual slavery, when men are dehumanized, we can not and must not sit idly by,” Clinton said. “Instead, we must act and we must unite to have the most affect of our actions, to be resolute in preventing the crimes associated with sexual violence in conflict, and addressing the needs of victims who demand justice and deserve support, not stigma.”
.
Clinton repeatedly commended her “friend and colleague” the British Foreign Secretary William Hague for co-hosting the summit with actress Angelina Jolie.
.
“William Hague has demonstrated unwavering leadership on this issue. He understands that it is ultimately about protecting individuals and promoting international security,” Clinton said.
.
The three-day event, which includes expert panels and discussions with delegates from 115 countries, comes after a two year-long collaboration between Hague and Jolie. Their efforts produced a declaration, now signed by about 150 countries, that pledged to end impunity for wartime rape. But critics worry that for all the discussion and pledge-signing, little concrete change has surfaced, even in countries that have signed the declaration.
.
Nigeria, for example, signed on to the campaign. But Sanam Naraghi, a gender and security expert and U.N. advisor, questions the worth of that signature in light of the government’s slow response to the recent Boko Haram kidnapping. “While the girls remain missing, media reports are linking some members of the Nigerian military to Boko Haram,” Naraghi writes.
.
“The engagement of certain countries with bad track records on addressing violence against women puts the very credibility of this campaign at risk.”
.
Clinton, in her video message, acknowledged that the worth of this week’s meetings depends upon whether or not international stamina on the subject continues.
.
“I know this will require persistence, determination, cooperation, innovation, and commitment. But I am confident that by working together as government leaders, civil society activists, humanitarian professionals, scholars, students, business owners, men and women young and old alike, we can and we will make a difference,” she said. “Do not lose heart. This is an historic opportunity and you are the people to help us seize it.”

I dont post on cb…..in fact i dont post on any other site but huffpo & jj…….but i visit many news and entertainment sites etc and read some of the comments.
.
On cb right now theyve just posted a thread about Angie’s Day 2 at the Summit and the op-ed she co-wrote with hague. And this is the comment from a poster:
.
Mari says:
June 11, 2014 at 7:49 am
I can’t get behind this 100% for various reasons……but an interesting thing I’ll say is that a substantial amount of people seem to believe that getting raped is worse than being murdered and I find that thought process horrifically wrong. I’m sure 99% of decent mothers would LOVE to be raped rather than murdered if it means they can be around to raise their children even just for one more day.”
.
SRSLY? Is this b!tch for real? She believes 99% of mothers would LOVE TO BE RAPED???? i dont care how she tries to qualify it….she says women would LOVE TO BE RAPED!!!!!!!
.
Please go over there and teach that nasty hateful subhuman a lesson or two.

International law can be deployed to tackle rape in war
==========================================
.

Wednesday 11 June 2014
.
Rape – it is all too easy to say – goes hand in hand with war. Conventional wisdom notes that, for as long as wars have been fought, sexual violence has featured in them. Men with guns are hard to control. That the level of rape in conflict zones does not appear to have fallen since 1945, when the Nuremberg trials labelled it a crime against humanity, points to the stubborn depravity of man, and the difficulty of bringing perpetrators to justice.
.
Yesterday a global summit began in London with the aim of changing that narrative. The task is unquestionably a steep one. Within the last two decades alone hundreds of thousands of women have been victims of sexual violence. Foreign Secretary William Hague, a leading figure at the summit, acknowledges it is an uphill struggle: “If anything, this is getting worse.”
.
Yet in the belief that measures can be taken to limit the scourge of sexual violence, Mr Hague is not mistaken. It will, of course, never be eradicated. But recent studies paint a more nuanced picture of rape’s prevalence in times of war. Not all military forces commit such crimes. Though levels of rape are staggeringly high in the war-torn Democratic Republic of Congo, a survey of all African conflicts between 1989 and 2009 concluded that only 26 per cent of armed groups were reported to have engaged in sexual violence. So what can be done to make soldiers on the front lines think twice?
.
An International Protocol is to be launched to standardise the kind of evidence needed for a case to be brought to court. This will lead to more convictions. So too would a proposal to hold commanders legally responsible for the behaviour of their troops. The law can – and must – make it harder to get away with rape

Watch Angelina Jolie’s moving speech against sexual violence in conflict
=============================================================
.
Wednesday, Jun 11 2014, 10:15 BST
.

Angelina Jolie has delivered a powerful speech against sexual violence in conflict at the current global summit.
.
The four-day event is taking place at London’s ExCeL conference centre, and is the biggest of its kind to ever be held.
.
The Maleficent actress addressed more than 300 international government ministers during her speech. She said: “It is a myth that rape is an inevitable part of conflict. There is nothing inevitable about it. It is a weapon of war aimed at civilians.”
.
She continued: “This whole subject has been taboo for far too long. War zone rape is a crime that thrives on silence and denial.
.
“The stigma harms survivors and causes feelings of shame and worthlessness. It feeds ignorance, such as the notion that rape has anything to do with normal sexual impulses.
.
“But most of all, it allows the rapist to get away with it. They feel above the law because the law rarely touches them and society tolerates them.”
Jolie, a special envoy for the UN High Commissioner for Refugees, recently joined British foreign secretary William Hague for the opening day of the event.
.
The pair have been working closely on the government initiative aimed at tackling sexual violence in war zones for the last two years.
.
Hague said that the UK will pledge a further £6 million ($10 million) to help survivors of sexual violence in conflict.
.
Jolie also teamed up with fashion designer friend Stella McCartney and War Child UK to launch a new campaign called ‘Draw Me to Safety’. The campaign aims to highlight the plight of children living in war zones.

Angelina Jolie will be doing a sit-down interview with Christiane Amanpour tonight (Wednesday) on Amanpour on CNN International at 20:00 (South African time).
.

Yesterday Angelina Jolie and William Hague, the United Kingdom’s foreign secretary, launched a fight against wartime rape at a four day summit in London – the largest of its kind yet.
.

“This whole subject has been taboo for far too long. Warzone rape is a crime that thrives on silence and denial,” said Angelina Jolie, according to Britain’s The Independent. “Survivors suffer under a stigma which causes feelings of shame and worthlessness”.
.

“Rapists feel above the law, because the law rarely touches them and society tolerates them,” said Angelina Jolie.
.

“This evil will continue, ruing the lives of millions of people, unless we make this summit a turning point. We must send a message around the world that there is no disgrace in being a survivor of sexual violence, that the shame is with the aggressor”.
.
According to The Guardian the conference aims to draw up an international agreement on standards for documenting and investigating sexual violence in conflict zones in an attempt to ensure justice for victims.
.
Campaigners are also pressing for armies to be trained to prevent sexual violence in conflict zones and for more support for survivors.
.
Angelina Jolie said that she wanted to dedicate the conference to a rape victim she recently interviewed in Bosnia, who felt so humiliated by what had happened to her that she could not even tell her own son, reports the BBC.

“She felt that having had no justice for her particular crime, in her particular situation, and having seen the actual man who raped her on the streets free, she really felt abandoned by the world. This day is for her.”

Angelina Jolie: Rape in war is not inevitable, shame is on the aggressor
==========================================================
.
By Laura Smith-Spark, CNNJune 10, 2014 — Updated 1518 GMT (2318 HKT)
• .
London (CNN) — “It is a myth that rape is an inevitable part of conflict. There’s nothing inevitable about it. It is a weapon of war aimed at civilians. It has nothing to do with sex, everything to do with power.”
So said Hollywood star Angelina Jolie on Tuesday in London, as she opened the biggest summit of its kind aimed at ending the scourge of sexual violence in conflict.
.
The four-day Global Summit to End Sexual Violence in Conflict, hosted by the UK government, will bring together representatives of more than 100 countries, as well as hundreds more experts, survivors, faith leaders, and staffers from NGOs and international organizations.
.
According to the U.N. children’s agency, UNICEF, more than 150 million young girls and 73 million boys experience sexual violence every year, and children in conflict-affected countries are the most vulnerable.
Yet shockingly few perpetrators are ever prosecuted or convicted.
.
Jolie called for the international community to put priority on efforts to hold those responsible for sexual violence to account. And she said it was time to end a culture of silence and denial that helps war zone rape to thrive, and means that the rapists rarely face justice. “They feel above the law because the law rarely touches them and society tolerates them,” she said. “We must send a message around the world that there is no disgrace in being a survivor of sexual violence — that the shame is on the aggressor.”
.
‘Shatter impunity’
.————————-
The summit organizers have four main aims: ending the culture of impunity by agreeing on an international protocol for documenting and investigating sexual violence in conflict zones; taking practical steps to protect women, including by training soldiers and peacekeepers; increasing support for survivors and human rights activists; and achieving a “seismic shift” in attitudes so that the problem is recognized and tackled globally.
.
“We need to shatter that impunity and make justice the norm, not the exception, for these crimes,” Jolie said.
.
“I have met survivors from Afghanistan to Somalia and they are just like us, with one crucial difference: We live in safe countries, with doctors we can go to when we’re hurt, police we can turn to when we’re wronged and institutions that protect us.”
.
It is up to everyone to help make this summit a turning point, Jolie said, and to work across borders, governments and religious faiths to bring an end to the use of rape and sexual violence in war.
“We really can do it,” she said.
.
Speaking alongside Jolie, with whom he launched the campaign to end sexual violence in conflict two years ago, UK Foreign Secretary William Hague pledged another £6 million ($10 million) from the UK government to help support survivors.
.
“We want people around the world to understand the scale of the problem and the urgent need for action, to recognize the damage it does to international peace and security and to be mobilized and inspired to work within their societies and with us to bear down on this terrible injustice,” he said.
.
Time to act
——————
UNICEF called on those at the summit, which runs until Friday, to agree on “concrete measures” to protect children in conflict from rape and abuse. Its own figures give an idea of the scale of the problem.
.
According to UNICEF, about 40% of Congolese women are believed to have been subjected to some form of sexual violence at some point in their lives, while in the most recent conflict in South Sudan, rape has been used by both sides of the conflict during fighting.
.
During the 1994 genocide in Rwanda, an estimated 250,000 to 500,000 women survived rape, UNICEF says, while an estimated 20,000 to 50,000 women were raped during the war in Bosnia and Herzegovina in the early 1990s.
.
In an online post, the agency recounts the “sadly typical” story of a woman in Goma in the Democratic Republic of the Congo whose daughter, born from rape, was called a witch and herself raped, at age 6, by her 14-year-old cousin.
.
Amnesty International
—————————-
Also said it was “time to deliver” on the ambitious goal of ending violence against women in conflict — and the broader but related problem of gender inequality.
.
Pope Francis
——————
The head of the Roman Catholic Church, added his voice to those calling for change.
“Let us pray for all victims of sexual violence in conflict, and those working to end this crime,” he tweeted Tuesday, using the hashtag #TimeToAct.

@Lurking Angelina probably is perspiring from all the walking and expending a great deal of energy. I know it happens to me.

Sorry people, just wanted to post as much before the Meltdown or should I say another day of Screaming in the Ocean begins.

Thanks again Phool. You are doing yeoman’s work.
.
Just saw a short segment on CNN about this summit. I wish Angelina and Hague the best. Who knows what changes will occur but at least they are trying.

Did not realize that Brad is one of the executive producers of Fury.

Love, love

@Phool.: Phool, you are on the ball my friend. Sorry I can’t be here with you today. Just peking in because I should be working right now. You are bringing us some good links and videos, I have to spend one time later to catch up on all, but thank you my dear friend. Phool, it was not the View, it was The Chew, I made a mistake saying it was The Talk. The Chew where they cook, do they served the Jolie Pitt and Perrin wine. with the meal they prepared.

Phool, I see the pervert worrying over Angie not wearing a bra, and not enough powder on her face. I would bet my life Angie without a bra and no powder on her face is a million times better looking than that Greek, tamshitt. Phool, you know this fool with the ever-changing moniker, right now it’s moniker is Lurking. I see lurking can’t tears itself away from a Angies thread just o it missed seeing Angie with all her beauty. Yes, phool tsmshitt is stalking Angie in order to carry out it’s threat to stab
Angelina 100x to kill her as it has promised to do if it meets her in the
street.

Phool, hopefully, i will see you in a few hours. Take care my friend. Ignore the errors. I’m very busy my friend.
Angies under garment but not a word aconite the rape victims, tamshitt really got it’s head all up Angie’s asses.

Thanks Jared for the Summit coverage..

I hope the World pulls together to stop this insanity.
