I went to the usa.gov website and saw a new travel warning to lebanon posted on may 30th. I thought things in lebanon look great now??? why would there be a warning? i'm getting married there in 19 days...should i worry?
no it was posted may 30th 2008 just recently after the new president got elected.
i am just worried that isreal is planning a attack and of course the US knows about it and that's why they posted a warning!

No no no. May 30th was probably of last year or something. Either way, there is nothing to fear now, so don't worry. Lebanese haven't been this happy in years.

I have been twice ....the last time in March / April this year....both times our government advisorys warned against it!

It's all about governments covering themselves in case things flare up ...they don't want a repitition of ' 06 when they had mass evacuations that cost them heaps!

I wouldn't be too worried. Politically, things aren't so great, but they are better. There might be minor things like now, but nothing big. They put those warnings are always put there because it is unexpected what happens in Lebanon, & they they want to get stuck like they did in the 2006 war, which cost them a lot of money to get the people out.
