Americans Stranded In Lebanon: Day 7

Did you think I was exaggerating in my earlier post today?

From CNN:

The Esseilys are among tens of thousands of Westerners stranded in Lebanon Tuesday waiting for help to arrive. Monika Esseily said she's in contact with many other Americans in Lebanon and that all of them want to get out.

"They're pulling out their hair, they're crying, they're saying 'What's going on?' They're being rejected from the American Embassy," she said. "The American Embassy is still saying, 'We will call you.' That's all that they will say."

I just heard that "hundreds" are being helped.

This is unacceptable. Period.

Best bar bet in the world: Delilah didn't do it.

America cares little about its citizens.. it is much more focused on selling arms to Israel and waiting eagerly to attack Syria and Iran. That 25,000 citizens are caught in the middle is just collateral damage. For any Americans who are killed in Lebanon, just remember the bombs will say 'Made in USA" on them.

I am deeply ashamed to be an American today. I'd try to reach the Iranian embassy in Beirut... what a great story it'd be if the Iranians got you out while the US was floundering and doing nothing.
