All I'm asking is that civilians be protected, and not targeted or harmed."

THANK YOU, you share when others don't, making a better world, people in Libya are fighting for freedom and are ready to die for it & are dying now even if meant facing air, sea or land heavy weapons with their bodies.
To know their cause is heard and people are supporting their noble cause is great & to do something about it is even greater... If everyone shares instead of talking nonsense the world would be a better place I hope you ignore the low voices & continue with your kindness

Agree 100% Null!! Every time I say anything like that hella ppl (ie payed employees of hers) jump all over me cuz they don't want others to believe or know the truth. Say it loud say it proud!! BTW-I also believe that she is still using heroin. Have you noticed lately how she wear clothing to hide her arms and how fucking ugly skinny she is?? Hummm interesting...

Thats awesome donating $2 million dollars 2 Namibian wildlife refuge[:

@null couldn't have said it better myself. You are spot on. If she really does care why not give 20mil instead of 2mill. She can afford it. What's 2mil to her. She is a media whore who loves the attention. But I do think she is a great actress and noone can steal a husband if they don't want to be stolen.

Angie is the best thing that ever happened to the women folk. She's really a rare gem. Keep up the good work and keep making me proud.

You people are RETARDED thinking she is SUCH a role model..... she is a homewrecker first and foremost!! Second, all she is doing is PR work just to keep her name in the news by visiting these remote places donating money. BIG DEAL! If she really wanted to impact the world she would sell one of her and Brad's 5 mansions and donate all the $$$$ to people who need it..... but instead she'll drop a little bit of money here and there, get publicity for it, and keep her name in the news.... all the while expoliting her kids and their countries along the way. Wake up, people!! Hollywood warped your mind. Compare a little lady named Mother Teresa to Angie as far as "philanthropy" goes... guarantee you will puke in your mouth when you do the comparison on the two. Mother Teresa= Philanthropist
Angie= Fame WHORE YOU DO THE MATH!!!

seriously who cares what she thinks? she's a rich celebrity...i don't need her input on world affairs anymore than i need to see her bad movies... all i am asking is she gives as much money to the USA as she gives to foreign countries....yet, that will never happen.
