Topics and Guests for December 30

The death toll from last weekend's earthquake-tsunami (search) catastrophe rose to more than 114,000 as Indonesia uncovered more and more dead from ravaged Sumatra island. We'll get live updates on the disaster zone from FOX News' Adam Housley in Phuket, Thailand.

Plus, we'll hear incredible stories of survival from tsunami survivors Lynn and Frank Guziec .

Another possible roadblock to democracy in Iraq as three militant groups warn Iraqis not to participate in the, "infidel laws of crusaders" — specifically the upcoming elections at the end of January. Will Iraqis be scared out of voting next month? That's the big question for retired U.S. Army Col. David Hunt, FNC military analyst.

And, having pledged over $35 million in aid, why is President Bush still being criticized for his involvement in the tsunami disaster? We'll get a fair and balanced debate from Les Csorba, former White House adviser and author of "Trust," and Peter Fenn, Democratic pollster.

All of that... and more on "The Big Story With John Gibson" at 5 p.m. ET.
