I was just wondering, since it seems so many countries are looking for it. Does each individual country just foot the bill? I know it’s for a good cause, but when I hear things like, the US could just dispatch a few ships from Diego Garcia into Australian waters and be there in a day or so, it makes me think the cost of this must be getting to be quite a bit.
Also as an aside, who pays for the lawsuits? Does it matter on whether it was accidental or not. By this i mean if the passenger’s families sue, does it matter whether it was an accident (fire), on purpose (suicide) or terrorist?
