Well How Do You Think We Got So Rich

And in the American tradition of hard nosed capitalism, the U.S. embassy in Lebanon is making American citizens pay for their evacuation...

Nucho added that all evacuees have signed promissory notes pledging to pay the U.S. back for safe passage to Cyprus, plus interest. Once in Cyprus, she said the government would not pay for hotel fees nor a return flight to the U.S.

Man, we're all sorts of generous. One wonders if maybe we could squeeze the evacuees for a little extra, you know, to finance embassy operations next year?
