Front Page: US to Send $1 Billion to Georgia, New Orleans Residents to Return, North Korea Reassembling Nukes

  • US to Send $1 Billion to Georgia:
    The Bush administration is set to announce $1 billion in aid to help Georgia rebuild after its conflict with Russia last month. The package reflects an increase of support from the administration. In addition, Vice President Cheney has visited the region, and the aid and visit will probably increase tension with Russia.
  • New Orleans Residents to Return:
    Mayor Ray Nagin has given New Orleans residents the go-ahead to return to their homes tomorrow — at their own risk. A curfew will still be in effect, and many homes are without electricity or working toilets. Nagin said, "It's my humble opinion that the city is still in a very, very vulnerable state." 800,000 people are still without power in the state.

  • North Korea Reassembling Nukes:
    North Korea has begun to reassemble its main nuclear facility saying the US has delayed its removal from the list of terror sponsors. In response, Washington has reiterated its condition that North Korea commit to a plan verifying the accounting of the nuclear program submitted in June. The US is talking to North Korean officials to "look for solutions."

I'm all about helping Georgia (they truly need it) - but $1 Billion Dollars (??) -- Where is this money coming from. Aren't we going through a recession???

I have friends in Atlanta and they haven't said a thing about Russia. I think this is another scam by the Bush Administration.

I'm just glad that no serious damage was done to New Orleans. However, Gustav is BIGGER than just my beloved Nawlins'. As the Governor pointed out, many other Parishes in Louisiana, as well as parts in Texas and Mississippi have been truly devastated by this storm.
