"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

Canada cannot commit ground forces to a possible war to end the rule of Saddam. Not that they won't be involved, they just don't have the ground forces to do it.

Defence Minister John McCallum:

"Having made this substantial commitment to Afghanistan, we will not be in a position to send substantial ground troops for a year or more to any other country.

"This does not rule out a possible participation in Iraq, should there be a war and should the government wish to do so, but not through ground troops."

Canada could still contribute ships, planes and its commando group JTF-2.
