U.S. tells Russia to pull forces out of Georgia

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The United States told Russia on Friday to withdraw its forces from U.S. ally Georgia and stop its air attacks on the tiny Caucasus state following fighting in the breakaway region of South Ossetia.
"We call on Russia to cease attacks on Georgia by aircraft and missiles, respect Georgia's territorial integrity, and withdraw its ground combat forces from Georgian soil," U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said in a statement.
Rice issued her statement as Georgia, a former Soviet state that now wants to join NATO, said it would declare martial law as it battled to get control of the rebel enclave, which was backed by Russian forces.
Both Rice and the White House urged an immediate cease-fire in South Ossetia, and U.S. officials said they would send an envoy to the region to help mediate.
As fighting raged in and around the South Ossetian capital of Tskhinvali, Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili said Russia and Georgia were at war....

U.S. Aircraft Carriers Head For The Gulf; Kuwait Prepares "Emergency War Plan" City, Kuwait (AHN) -- Two additional U.S. Navy aircraft carriers are on their way to the Gulf and the Red Sea, according to Kuwait Times.

Flu pandemic 'gravest risk to UK'
A flu pandemic is the gravest threat to UK security as it could claim up to 750,000 lives, according to a new National Risk Register.
The document, published for the first time, weighs up the likelihood of threats and their potential impact.
The most likely threats are attacks on the transport network and on computer and communications systems.
Britain has stockpiled enough doses of the antiviral drug Tamiflu to treat 25% of the population, the document says.
The risk register, which had been kept secret until now and will be updated annually by the Cabinet Office, sets out the various dangers faced by the UK and how they are viewed by government advisors.
Experts agree that there is a high probability of another influenza pandemic occurring
National Risk Register
BBC security correspondent Frank Gardner said that while officials insisted the register was not intended to rank dangers in any kind of priority, it was clear that pandemic flu had emerged as the gravest threat to national security.

New Underwater Anti-Terrorism Technology to Patrol San Francisco Bay
Contra Costa County Purchases Underwater Inspection System from Coda Octopus
Coda Octopus Group, Inc. (OTCBB: CDOC) said today the Company’s Underwater Inspection System™ (UIS), developed in cooperation with the US Coast Guard, has been purchased by the Sheriff’s Office of Contra Costa County, CA. Contra Costa County will be the first on the West Coast to permanently deploy the UIS, developed after the 9/11 attacks to address the need for a new generation of port security technology to respond to underwater threats.
“The UIS will play the key role in enhancing our underwater security capability and assisting our efforts to secure shore side critical infrastructure in the California Bay and Delta regions. Having seen this unique technology in action when the All-Star Game was held in San Francisco, we are very excited to add this powerful 3D real time sonar technology to our counter terrorism efforts. This is the only system of its kind that can produce the sort of detailed information we need and in real time, which significantly improves our capability to protect the public”, commented Lieutenant Will Duke of the Contra Costa County Office of the Sheriff.
Jason Reid, Coda Octopus President and CEO, said he viewed the Contra Costa order as a significant milestone for the Company. “We have always envisaged the ports and local law enforcement agencies of the United States as a very large and important market for these devices”, Reid said. “The orders in recent months by Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office and now Contra Costa confirm our belief in the uniqueness and importance of the technology and of the products we have to offer”, he continued.
Reid also said, “A large number of US law enforcement agencies and ports have shown significant interest in the UIS, and we look forward to confirming additional orders in the near future.”
Vermont Anti-Terror Unit Gets Consolidated Headquarters
Sen. Patrick Leahy, D-Vermont, and FBI director Robert Mueller announced a recently-formed Joint Terrorism Task Force will locate in a centralized place -- the federal Law Enforcement Support Center in Williston.
Leahy and Mueller also toured a computer forensics room at the Burlington Police Department. This kind of work helped crack the case of murdered teenager Brooke Bennett last month. The new task force based in Williston joins more than a hundred similar task forces across the country. Federal, state and local authorities will coordinate major investigations and intelligence.
"There is no specific threat that triggered the movement of the joint terrorism center here," Mueller said, "but a recognition and a realization that we all are more effective when we co-locate and are able to exchange information across the hallway, as opposed to on the telephone."
