It's like going to the doctor, who upon hearing your symptoms, is puzzled at your delay making the appointment.
Israel has been bombing the shit out of Lebanon for five days now, and the government of the U.S. is now mobilizing... to send a cruise ship to pick up some of the 25,000 Americans still stranded there.
I'm not up on the math, but I'm pretty sure one cruise ship is not going to make much of a dent in those numbers.
Fewer than 100 Americans have been evacuated from Beirut up to this point. Perhaps their last name was Bin Laden, and they received favorable treatment.
One must wonder how long this goes on before this wholly inept government of ours has a brush with another Katrina Clusterfuck.
I think that would officially be Clusterfuck 77.
