One American citizen, being evacuated from Lebanon, was quoted as follows by the AP:
Exhausted and shaken, the Americans stood in line at the harbor in Larnaca ... as they waited to be told where they would sleep and when they might leave.Ms. Kharbouche, as an American citizen, I know exactly what it feels like to watch "buildings fall [while] there are people inside." That is precisely why I fully support Israel's right to defend itself as a sovereign nation.
"This war is unfair. It's unfair if you see buildings fall and there are people inside," said Mona Kharbouche, a mother of two who said she had left behind her mother, two sisters and a brother.
With that I return to my adventures in capitalism.
