I am surprised that this is the first time someone has stated something so obvious--that "Brangelina" essentially paid the country's government to stage manage the birth of their child. They may promote some worthwhile causes bit their imperialism is blatant.

Brangelina could take a lesson from Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban who are so much more gracious and so much more classy in their approach to dealing with a private matter behind the watchful public eye.

Angelina just needs to go away and not bother anyone. Her baby is no more special than any other child. People can come and go into the country as they please. Get off your high horse Angelina, and go back to Billy Bob and making out with your brother...you were much more interesting then.

what some people might not understand is that alot of africans in alot of african nations are more likely to cater to tourists, more often european, american and lastly african american. speaking as an american, but a child of african parents... experiencing being snubbed service and courtesy to another american who just happened to be white in your parents' country is amazing, to say the least. i'm not going to even try to debate why this behavior exists, but i'm not surprised that the namibian government catered to brad and angelina's 'needs'.
