It’s very encouraging news that the US will give another $600 million for the Tsunami aid because even Wolfowitz realizes that it’s a great PR move: “Above and beyond the humanitarian considerations – which would be compelling enough – we have an enormous interest in seeing this succeed,” Wolfowitz said, noting Indonesia’s status as both an “emerging democracy” and the world’s most populous Muslim country.”

I think the US Govt is finally starting to get it; a successful war on terror is 10% destruction and 90% education. Right now, we’re at 99% destruction and 1% education, but we’re going in the right direction.
