"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

A reasonable voice in Africa. The Prime Minister of Zambia has offered land to the whites in Zimbabwe. He realizes his nation needs the experience the farmers offer and knows that it will help his starving people. Now the black workers who live on those farms need some protection.

Prime Minister Martin Ziguele told Anita McNaught on BBC's HARDtalk: "We will offer them land. My country has no problem with land. We are a country with 3.5 million inhabitants on 624,000 square kilometres. It's a very big country. For each kilometre of land we have less than one inhabitant. So we have land."
