"If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest for freedom, go home and leave us in peace. We seek not your council nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." - Samuel Adams

Guess that should speed things right along.

Iraq's Deputy Prime Minister Tareq Aziz on Friday rejected the unconditional return of U.N. arms inspectors as demanded by Washington, saying the move would not avert U.S. military designs on Baghdad.

"The return of inspectors without conditions will not solve the problem ...because we have had a bad experience with them. Is it clever to repeat an experience that failed and did not prevent aggression?" Aziz told Dubai-based Arab satellite station MBC in an interview to be broadcast at 11:00 a.m. EDT. The footage was seen in advance by Reuters.

For a good look at the insepector's bad experience with Iraq. See the previous story.
