US To Charge Citizens For Evacuation From Lebanon

At the State Department, McCormack said the cost of a massive evacuation was beyond U.S. resources. He said evacuated Americans would be asked to pay commercial rates, and if they did not have the money US citizens will need to sign a promissory note.

I don't want to pay for them.

Remember the government never pays for anything, WE DO!

Why? I've always had to pay for my vacations -- nobody is ordering these people out. They can stay or they can go -- it's up to them. And they can pay either way.

you're saying all the foreigners are there on vacation and i bet only a small percentage of them are actually there for that. since US governemt supports this, another illegal invasion of a sovereign nation shouldn't US pay everyone's way out?

personally, i am very disappointed that Lebanon hasn't answered to this aggression at all. wtf are they waiting for? fuck the israelis and their murdering ways.. how fast they forgot about holocost? or did that really even happen?

I don't give a rat's ass why they're there. I assume they're there because they want to be there, and that they paid their way there. And now, they can pay their way home if they want to leave. I sure as hell don't see why I should have to pay, and unless they're invited guests of Israel and/or Lebanon, their governments certainly have no obligation in that regard either. I swear to christ -- one more their, they're, there, and I'm gonna blow my frickin' brains out. Damn! That's why I need a gun!

Ya gotta b carefull....talking the TRUTH about Isreal...will bring on cries of RACIST...

Or my fav. > ANTI-SEMMETIC <....

Lets face it....the Zionists in the M-East are there for only one reason...& Thats to Help 'merikkka KILL DARK SKINNED PEEPS.

Our history of murdering dark-skinned peoples goes back to the Founding Fathers...worked its way u^p to African-Americans....is currently being applied to Mexicans....& MURDERING of Palitenian Mothers & kids as well as Iraqi families...is all being funded with YOUR TAX $$$$$...

..Kinda makes you a RACIST BY PROXIE.

Its a very sad time in 'merikkka 2-day.

The bright spot is 2591 Dead USA StormTroopers....& 20,000 WOUNDED.

Reblikkkans suck ...biggity time.
