"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

Norwegien Foreign Minister, Jan Petersen, agrees with the US and Uk that the UN-Iraq deal leaves sommthing to be desired.

"The initial delight at there had been an agreement disappears when such important exceptions are presented. Inspectors are not the goal for this initiative, they are a means of checking that he does not have weapons of mass destruction, and if access is not unlimited then one cannot do this," Petersen said. "I have to say that I am disappointed that one has not managed to get an agreement that fills in the loopholes that were there before."

"I think it is important that we maintain pressure on this procedure so that the demands of global society are clear to Saddam Hussein. Only under such circumstances will he give in," Petersen said.
