The American government wants the evacuees out of Cyprus as soon as possible. I mean within a few days! The ones that used the evacuation to leave Lebanon, but cannot travel to the US (they hid their history of drug convictions, criminal conduct, rape and murder and now have been identified), those will have to find a home somewhere else in the world. Not in Cyprus and not in the US.

As for the American people – they want the destruction of a terrorist organization at any cost. We see the whole action as Israel eliminating an enemy. If it draws Syria and Iran in the war so what, 14,000 or 1,400,000 refugees, they could really care less if the nearby regions are affected.
