Front Page: Russia Warns US, Airline Merger, Satellite Plan

  • Russia just warned the United States that Kosovo's declaration of independence from Serbia threatens international stability. President Bush recently said history would show that Kosovo's quest for independence to be "a correct move," adding that, "we believe it will bring peace." The Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said during a phone call with Condoleezza Rice, "we underlined the dangerous consequences of such a step, which threatens the destruction of world order and international stability which have developed over decades." Violence has already erupted on the Serbian border. The Serbian parliament has also passed a resolution condemning Kosovo's declaration of independence.
  • Two major airlines, Delta and Northwest, are in talks to merge. The combination would create the world's largest airline and spark a round of consolidations through out the industry. Any airline merger is thought to face opposition in Congress.
  • The US Navy is set to make its first attempt to shoot down a faulty satellite tomorrow night. Warnings have been issued for a large area of the Pacific, west of Hawaii. Because the satellite broke right after its launch a year ago, it has a full tank of fuel. The concern is that it would survive re-entry and shoot potentially deadly fumes over an area the size of two football fields.

People get so weird about the Balkans. Like any major world-wide conflagration would ever start there.

trixie i followed that story faithfully and i was not surprised at the response from the russian government, i don't think marina and her son will ever get the justice they deserve. Russia does fascinate me but as an African it terrifies me because of the racism and neo-nazism. I would never ever go there, I wanted to take Russian but it meant going to Russia for a month and I was like no thank you. It seems so beautiful which is the sad part.

Nya - I'm reading Death of a Dissident by Alex Goldfarb& Marina Litvinenko. It's about the poisoning death of Alexander Litvinenko. I've had to put it down a couple of times b/c I get so pissed off at what they did to this man. Russia fascinates me, but I don't think I'd ever want to live there.
