You've got to understand that a US city and Georgia are two different beasts. The US has the infrastructure and ability to raise money outside of the government, Georgia barely has any of that ability, if any at all. I would venture to say that 1bn is not enough. Hopefully other nation states will contribute.

What's another thousand million dollars when you are already bankrupt at ~ Nine Thousand five hundred billion dollars? Add another five thousand or so billion to nationalize Fannie and Freddie and an estimated thirty trillion to fund the boomers social security and medicare till they die off, we are so so Financially FUBAR.
It's no longer a question of if, it's a question of when, likely measured in months, either a deflationary or a hyperinflationary depression is on the way.

The pipeline that crosses Georgia can pump slightly more than 1 million barrels of crude oil per day, or more than 1 percent of the world's daily crude output. The 1,100-mile pipeline carries oil from Azerbaijan's Caspian Sea fields, estimated to hold the world's third-largest reserves.

You guys act like oil production and availability doesn't effect the well being of people around the world. If there were a major oil crisis it would be catastrophic. It's cynical to think that the US acts in the name of oil, but it's true and better than doing nothing. In terms of Iraq, well that's a different story.

And yes, we have to protect our A$$ets, because I agree that my country and it's people's well being come before any other country.
But, don't lie to me and tell me my friends are fighting for "freedom" and when I enlist that I'll be I'm fighting for "freedom".......

One more thing, while I do put my country's well being before anyone else, our Gov is in bed with oil politicians, literally now, scandal made public last night.
If oil sh8t heads weren't controlling as much as they do, we could've at least, decreased our dependence on oil, even foreign oil.
We have some of the best scientists and hard working people(some, not most), and if we really wanted to do something about it, we could, but money and political/corporate strings are in the way.
Not to sound like a hopeful, I ain't and things won't change, but I got nothing better to do now : P
