What Did Angelina Jolie Pay for Her Baby?

Asmara, Eritrea

Did anyone ask movie star Angelina Jolie how much she paid for the Ethiopian baby she adopted? Or should I say how much she “donated”, most of which ended up in the hands of the national crime syndicate known as the Government of Ethiopia.

Just about anyone can buy a baby in Ethiopia these days, you know what I mean,  “adopt”? It costs about $30,000. Cash. Some reports say over 3,000 were sold … adopted, last year alone.

It has turned into a major cash flow for the Godfathers of the Ethiopian “government”. Do the math, 3,000 times $30,000, in one year,  and another London bank account or three is going to have to get set up to be stuffed chock full of some very sick money.

When you buy…adopt, a baby in Ethiopia there is a good chance that the baby isn’t an orphan, though it is usually standard language in all the deeds of sale/adoption papers that such is the case. With millions of Ethiopians famine stricken, selling babies has become a way to survive for some, though of the $30,000 as little as $1,000 makes it through the hands of the Ethiopian mafia to the babies’ families.

If one has been reading the pages of this and other websites willing to publish what is really going on in Ethiopia, you will know that Ethiopia is committing genocide against the ethnic Somalis in the Ethiopian Ogaden. So why should selling babies come as a shock?

Angelina Jolie should come clean and tell us what she really “donated” to get her little Ethiopian girl. Somehow though I won’t hold my breath, for Ms. Jolie just called for the USA to declare war and invade Sudan.. Buy an African child and then bomb some African villages, it just gets to be Holly-weird, doesn’t it?

The UN is even weirder though, with Ethiopia committing genocide in the Ogaden, the Security Council finally acted, passing sanctions against…next door neighbor Eritrea?

The saying goes here in this part of Africa “all roads to peace in the Horn of Africa run through Asmara [Eritrea]…” and there is one thing the USA and especially Hollywood is dead set against and that is peace breaking out in Africa. With the UN there to enforce the Law of the Jungle, only the strong survive. And survivors, especially those that won’t kneel down at the masters’ feet, have to be made examples of. Or at least it has to look that way, and sanctions against Eritrea it must be.

So buy a baby in Ethiopia and support genocide. And don’t forget to declare war and start bombing Sudan. In the meantime, get busy and start enforcing the sanctions against Eritrea. Either that or better yet, make sure no one even hears about all of this, business as usual, you know, with none the wiser?
