Hollywood's turn to distract the crowd
"Three million refugees is not just another statistic, it is a searing indictment of our collective failure to end the war in Syria."
This is Angelina Jolie's recent and flip-side statement on Syria, ignoring the obvious. Each time the U.S. government fears it's losing against its people, it gestures the Hollywood brand of center-right 'accolade' winners to come on stage. Is Jolie aware (rather it's impossible she wouldn't be aware) that ninety percent of those refugees have been forced out of Syria by "rebels" generously supported by her government for three years? What else would you expect other than "collective failure" to end the Syrian war?? In April 2013 she performed similar theatrics at the London G8 Declaration on Preventing Sexual Violence in Conflict. She talked much on ending wartime sexual abuse and rape against women WITHOUT any specifics as if Syria doesn't even exist in spite of the widespread rape, sexual abuse and forced temporary marriages committed by U.S.backed terrorist invaders that had reached frightening proportions in Syria by April 2013. This is in addition to thousands of rape cases against Rohingya women and using them as sex slaves by Burmese mobsters and military since June 2012, in a country which is a close ally of the U.S. and U.K. Thousands of rapes carried out in Iraq and Afghanistan by U.S. troops themselves for more than a decade since 2002. No mention nor condemnation of any of these depraved monsters by Mrs. Jolie-Pitt ever!
Masquerading as a 'humanitarian' is sad enough; it gets still worse when they don their lip service with a labyrinthine complexity whirling a simple fact and insulting the intelligence of readers and viewers.
