    All good so long as they stick to their guns and don't waste money rescuing the fools who go there and want to be saved when violence erupts like our crazy govt did in Lebanon.

    bit o history on that and I'm not confirming dates...
    If you remember back a few years ago there was all that bombing etc going on in Lebanon. Well it seems that there are more "Canadians of convenience" lebanese living in Lebanon than there are American and British ones combined. These are the folks that come here legally, get citizenship and then they're on the next plane back to their homeland but when something goes awry they want saving. It's infuriating. I think the US and Brits did much the same with their Americans of Convenience" as well during that time.

    Even if I COULD afford to travel, I don't think I would leave the U.S.
    Can't think of any place in the world I would care enough by risking my life to see.
