Angelina Jolie Releases Statement on Syrian Refugees - Read it Here

Angelina Jolie is turning the spotlight from her big wedding to Brad Pitt to the devastating situation in Syria in a newly released statement

“Three million refugees is not just another statistic,” the 39-year-old actress and UNHCR special envoy, said of the displaced citizens who have fled Syria because of the civil war. “It is a searing indictment of our collective failure to end the war in Syria.”

“International stability is steadily bleeding away in Syria. UN Security Council Resolutions are being ignored; war crimes are being committed on a daily basis; regional countries are staggering under the human burden; and Syrian refugees are dying in the Mediterranean sea, trying to reach Europe. We need to see a new attempt to resolve the conflict and greater efforts to support more than 13 million Syrians who are in desperate need,” Angelina added.

“The reputation and credibility of the international system is at stake with so many thousands of lives threatened in Syria,” she concluded.

    Emmys or no Emmys My Father would have been at my wedding. There were lots of no shows at the awards Jon could have NOT gone. If Angie didn’t invite him that is just plain mean and evil. Either way Angie and Jon are screwed up. It is sad..

    What about the refugee children who were sent back to South America to suffer under the drug lords, a life of crime, and suffering. Did you stand up for them. You are a hypocrite, anti-semitic just like Penelope Cruz.

    ‘Friends’ Reunion Gone Wrong? Why Fans Are So Upset

    Me thinks Huvane told Aniston about the wedding and she was REALLY upset.
    She’s not over the divorce and never will.

    Congratulations Angelina and Brad for the wedding, you two fabulous humanitarian and caring people
    Love you

    Words don’t cost money. She talks about issues, but never follows through, like when she said she’ll marry when homosexuals were allowed to marry too. And we know how she lied about that. She is a shock value attention seeker unstable woman

    Christian Says:

    LOL! She is so comically skinny, only in America a witch looking, borderline personality middle aged woman gets that much attention.

    @15 lbs: Why don’t you take the 15 lbs and stuff up your A**hole, since you seem to be carry them around.
    Did she tell you get lap band surgery, because you’re a heifer.
    You’re on a bigger scale and all you can do, is eat and belch and contributes nothing to the human race, but your envious comments.
    Put down the bowl and try reaching your toes it is going to take all day, but at least you would be helping yourself, tubby.

    @George the Pak i do you mean kids that living in parts of Detroit and Chicago?
    You know dare well if the refugees can prove their life would be endangered based on unusual circumstances than they were not sent home.

    Kick Says:

    The only thing she accomplishes with statements like this is polishing her own halo once again because no one here is talking about the Syrian conflict or the refugees rather they are just commenting on what a saint Angie is for simply making a public statement about it. This is a problem for the politicians of the world, addressing the public is not going to matter much.

    Poor Jen Says:

    I wonder what Jennifer really did when she found out they married. Cried like a baby why Justin wasn’t looking. She will never get over Brad or the power she had while with Brad who only wanted a Family. Jens life would be so different now, she screwed up so bad..I can not feel sorry for her, she lied to her husband.

    Lol….the trolls are foaming at the mouth again – everything is perfect in the Jolie-Pitt world!

    Ron Says:

    Once that video came out showing her high on heroin, I told my friend, it’s a matter of months before she gets married to Pitt to divert attention from her drug problem, which she and Pitt still have. The both do heroin, he’s said so. And he said he knows where to get it in every major big city in the Country.
