OOPS. Bush frees 13.5 million dollars for Lebanon. NOT 50 million.

Today is Angry Post Day.

Today, in a memorandum for the Secretary of State, Bush determined that "it is important to the national interest that up to $13.5 million be made available from the U.S. Emergency Refugee and Migration Assistance Fund to meet unexpected urgent humanitarian needs related to the conflict in Lebanon."

Unexpected urgent humanitarian needs? UNEXPECTED?

Last night on CNN I heard the U.S. was giving Lebanon 50 million bucks. I guess somebody was misinformed. Either way, the sums are p-a-t-h-e-t-i-c. (Not that we want money from the U.S. in the first place).

The "Israelican" war on Lebanon, which continued for one month and four days, has caused Lebanon $9.5 billion damage.

NINE POINT FIVE BILLION DOLLARS.
