    U.S. ups tsunami aid from $35 million to $350 million

    The United States will increase its aid pledge from $35 million to $350 million to help victims of the tsunamis in south Asia, CNN has learned.

    The increase followed criticism that the initial amount was far from enough.

    The director of the U.S. Agency for International Development told CNN on Friday that the $35 million pledge was only the first step in U.S. aid to the countries that were devastated by Sunday's earthquake and tsunamis.

    "The money was committed on Sunday when the emergency took place," Andrew Natsios told CNN's "American Morning." "It's action on the ground that is needed. We will get more than enough money from the president and I'm sure Congress later on when we need it."

    That's money very well spent. What happened was absolutely terrible. Over 100000 dead.

    Anyone see Colin Powell on Nightline? Steffie Stephanopoulos was filling in for Kopell and was his typical smug self.

    Powell shot him to pieces.

    If the Liberals keep hammering Bush over BS things they will lose even more seats in the next round of Congressional elections.

    money well spent now, except the libs will ***** about the budget crisis next year, and they'll forget where 500 million went. (don't tell me it will only be 350, the first estimates are always lower than the actual cost)
