    Fair enough, what I meant to express is that the world should not always look to the U.S. to get involved. Not picking on Turkey, but they are a strong neighbor of Syria. Turkey is impacted as many thousands have moved there looking for refuge, and it is my understanding that Syria has mined the roads leading to the camps. Not sure if the mines are only on the Syria side of the border.

    But you have a point, it is easy to go tell some other nation to put it's kids in harms way.

    Right. Democracy starts at home Angie. For all these supposed "artists" and "intellectuals" you'd think that they'd have a more progressive world view of foreign politics, - that being - that war is an obsolete way of solving mankinds problems, that the 20th Century saw enough bloodshed and it was a mistake, that it only leaves disease, poverty and death. Obviously, a Syrian war would be as bad or worse than Iraq, so she doesn't even have to go back that far for an example of barbarism. All these reasons lead me to believe that Angie is a paid, pro-war, shill - like Hannity- who propagandizes for the State as part of mult-million dollar annual salary from the Time/Warner company, a known front for CIA and military propanganda in the same way News Corp. functions.

    Re: Angelina calls for intervention in Syria

    Much as I admire Jolie's contributions in her work as an actress and her efforts for larger social and humanitarian causes, I disagree with her on this point. In Syria, one has witnessed a brutal dictatorship on one side of the civil conflict. On the other side, one has witnessed elements that have resorted to indiscriminate car bombings that have claimed numerous civilian lives. In terms of concrete actions, there is little to indicate that the uprising is not much more than a bid to oust the minority Alawite regime. Certainly, there is no "government in waiting," much less a charter outlining democratic principles and human rights protections that the Assad dictatorship's opponents would aim to put in place.

    Rather than intervening in the civil conflict in Syria, I believe a better approach would focus on humanitarian assistance. That assistance could be provided to bordering countries such as Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon and Turkey who have to deal with the humanitarian impact of the civil conflict from refugees fleeing that conflict.

    The "brutal dictatorship," is here in the USA. Police shooting innocents, tasering, illegal searches, beating OWS and other protesters, (drones over our own cities!,) internet/ Patriot Act spying, FBI entrapment to bolster the Fatherland Security apparatus, on and on.

    Much worse than East Germany on that side of the Berlin Wall, yes?

    Who is the "Evil Empire," then?

    Honestly, if I were President, Angelina Jolie would be arrested and put in jail for producing war propaganda films and inciting war on innocents. What she is doing is far worse than the manufactured charges heaped on Julian Assange!

    After all of the Hollywood critiques of Bush/Cheney, the film actors supporting this criminal Obama govmnt, with their millions simply shoot themselves in the foot and alienates American audiences by supporting this pro-war buffoonery and the thuggery that is the WH imperialist foreign policy.

    Hollywood actors - try heeding the message of your own films already, you hypocrites!

    Shes a CFR member, (like the Clintons and others) and they always plan the wars ahead of time, and long before the DoD carries them out. The CFR is closely connected to the State Dept.
