Bangkok: -- Hollywood star Angelina Jolie visited a Myanmar refugee camp in Mae Hong Son province Friday to call awareness to the world’s refugee problems.

On World Refugee Day, Jolie took a trip up north to discuss the lives of Myanmar refugees in Ban Mai Nai Soi camp as Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees.

"Preventing armed conflict should be a collective responsibility of the international community," Jolie said. "This staggering surge in refugee numbers shows that the world is failing to meet that responsibility.

This is an unjust and unsustainable situation. The only answer is to devote greater efforts and resources to addressing conflict worldwide – there are no humanitarian solutions to political problems." [read more...]

"armed conflict", she said ...???

<DELETED>ing loony film star, knows nothing apart from self-promotion. Idiot.

I do believe she was making a general statement, it being World Refugee Day and all...

But even in relation to the specific location:

Ban Mai Nai Soi shelters 11,890 refugees of the Karen ethnic group fleeing fighting in Myanmar.

Don't you just luv em; JT took off in her Private Plane to an undisclosed destination? Was JT flying the plane?

She does a lot more than others do, and she works on a mirco level by adopting some childern. Not much said about trafficing, but then again needs to get out of the country?

If people have time, go to one of your local services in Thailand and spend some time there as a volunteer. You may make someones life better for the day, and may change your life. Just a thought. All of us need to do more selfless acts, me included.

Can someone explain to me the difference between child trafficking and adopting some foreign children and dragging them to the USA?

No respect.

She didn't drop in to visit the host country leader first.

No respect.

I wonder what would Gen Prayuth say?

Some should tell Angelina that when you visit a country your supposed to take a T shirt home!

Only joking.

This woman has used in fame to bring forward the plight of the displaced and the underprivileged .

I have nothing but admiration for her!

And to say she looks scary is a low blow considering losing both breasts to cancer and even then didn't hide it but inspired millions of women to have regular check ups!

George Cloony is much the same do a lot of good work.
