NEW YORK (MarketWatch) — The U.S. media breathed a little easier last week. Thank heavens for Angelina Jolie, peacemaker.

Last week, the public relations-savvy actress forced herself into a bitter, protracted battle which, for a long time, seemed to have no end in sight.

Unfortunately though, I’m talking about Iraq, not the Hollywood writer’s strike.
Oscar-winner Jolie parachuted into Iraq long enough to burnish her image and remind David Petraeus, the U.S. commander in Iraq, and Iraq’s Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki that they need to forge a plan to assist the 2 million displaced Iraqis.
