Angelina Jolie contributed a piece to the The Washington Post about the war in Iraq, focusing specifically on the displaced Iraqi refugees. The actress summarized her recent trip to the war-torn country, hoping to bring attention to the humanitarian issues facing the region at the moment, as well as her thoughts on how stabilizing Iraq once U.S. military forces are eventually withdrawn.
She poses the question, “Can the United States afford to gamble that 4 million or more poor and displaced people, in the heart of Middle East, won’t explode in violent desperation, sending the whole region into further disorder?”
And did we forget to mention that she’s pregnant? Yeah, just wanted to make sure you kept focus on what’s important here.
