"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

The Kurds are claimingthat the al-Qaeda linked group in Northern Iraq is on its last legs.

"There has been a complete internal collapse since the arrest of their leader," a PUK official said, speaking by telephone from the Syrian capital, Damascus. "There were five more yesterday," he added.

Dutch police earlier this month arrested Mullah Krekar, whose real name is Najmuddin Faraj Ahmad, an Iraqi Kurdish refugee who heads Ansar al-Islam. PUK officials have accused the group of links to al Qaeda, blamed by the United States for last year's Sept. 11 attacks on New York and Washington.
