George Clooney To The Rescue!

george clooney to keep peace in sudan

Okay, so maybe things didn't go so well when George Clooney tried to play a hero in Batman & Robin, but now it looks like he's getting a second chance in real life.

Yesterday, a group founded by George Clooney announced that it's teaming up with Google, a U.N. agency, and anti-genocide organizations to launch "satellite surveillance of the border between north and south Sudan to try to prevent a new civil war after the south votes in a secession referendum next month."

Here's what Clooney had to say about it:

"We want to let potential perpetrators of genocide and other war crimes know that we're watching, the world is watching. War criminals thrive in the dark. It's a lot harder to commit mass atrocities in the glare of the media spotlight."

We wish U the best of luck with your peacekeeping efforts, George!

    Phew. Africa exhales tonight, knowing Clooney's got their back.
    Thank you Mr. Clooney.
    The world is a safer place.

    Founded? Are you kidding me? David Pressman is an integral part of Not on Our Watch, the actors including Clooney are the face of the organisation.

    These actors/humanitarians wouldn't know how to function without people who've committed themselves to the human rights field, who didn't pocket millions on their last gig. You make it sound as if they can single handedly save the world.

    Its admirable that they're putting a face to a cause but they aren't the only ones there.

    Ellie, It's really good of you to mention the names of those who are in the trenches! But George can it on Perez, so good on him too. He brings the spotlight! This is an awesome idea. People have no idea about the killings in Sudan or the legal slavery pisslamic Sudan wages upon the South. So many brutal killings and rapes and the taking of young into slavery. This is the face of pisslam in action. This is what moehammy taught, how to kill and rape and take slaves. How come nobody cares about the Arabs running roughshod in Africa? Estimates run as high as 150 million Africans killed in the pisslamic slave trading that continues today. pisslam is the only group of people who still practice slavery legally. When you see a picture of King Abdulalalala, know that he has a harem of sex slaves and reflect on that, how disgusting Saudi Arabians are! Much hope here that the South, in this case, can secede and escape the brutality that the Arabs have perpetrated against them.

    Mr. Clooney, PLEASE stay in Hollywood! I'm so sick to the gills of these self-inflated, arrogant a-holes trying to slither into politics! Shallow nothings! If this pompous a-hole gets into the club, it'll only be because of his looks - nothing more!

    Re: msconcierge – Really??? What "good" movies has this no-nothing starred in, at least in the last few years??? SUCKS!

    How about watching our own borders and stop the drug traffickers, gansters and terrorists from coming over?

    Re: A Voice of Sanity – No-nothing? Er, that would be know-nothing. At least learn to spell before you go judging. So you're FOR genocide and war crimes? Partisan idiot.

    Re: A Voice of Sanity – George is no pretty boy, as much as you'd love to plop him there. Do your homework. He teethed on journalism and politics at the feet of his father. It just happens that he's also good looking, and smart enough to choose a well paying profession. You lose all credibility simply by trying to belittle and criticize a decent man who is trying to help diffuse a powder keg situation.

    Yeah..watch out you bad guys…George Clooney is watching you and if you step out of line he will come and act at you. It's Team America all over

    Re: womenareprey – The rest of the world know about it - maybe in America you guys think it isn't well known but trust me, the rest of the world is well aware of what happens in other countries

    Re: bobo – OMG yes - I would totally tap that! lol Well spotted
