Having been there, 600k is on the low side as an estimate. People are going to wherever they are less likely to get randomly shot, and Jordan is closest for most of them.

I don't agree with the US putting up 1 billion in loan guarantees though. Isn't this sort of thing precisely what the UN was created for? Disaster relief and spreading the load out a bit?
