"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

British soldiers waiting in Kuwait know the time.

Captain Phil Oxley, who is with the Royal Artillery as part of 29 Commando, said: “There is no moral shadow hanging over us here. Of course you agonise about where you are sent, as we did when we were in Afghanistan last year, but no matter what people might think of us, we don’t long for war. But we do believe what we are doing here is right.”

Many in Camp Gibraltar, such as Sergeant Stephen Moran, 36, fought in the last Gulf War. He said: “I didn’t think I would be back 12 years later. But then I don’t want us coming back again in another 12 years, so let’s do it properly this time.”
