Who needs the aid?

So Bush is going to punish Moscow for invading Georgia even though it suspiciously looks like we drew them over the line.

We are going to pay for a 1 billion dollar economic recovery package in Georgia.  Supposedly it doesn't include military aid, but we have been helping the Georgian military modernize and so "U.S. officials have said it is likely that more military assistance will be forthcoming at some point to help the badly routed Georgian forces rebuild again."

Naturally Moscow is angry saying we started it which many would say we did. 

Why would we antagonize Russia right now and why are we helping another country with economic recovery when our own is in such sad shape?   Oh, right.   The election.   Silly me!!
