"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

Hezbollah, not only more hard-line than Jacques and Gerhard on Saddam, they appear to be more pro-America than the 'peace' marchers last weekend.

As to the looming U.S. war on Iraq, Kawtharani insisted that in itself the conflict would not create tensions between the United States and Hezbollah.

"It depends on what American policy becomes after the toppling of Saddam Hussein's regime," he said. "We are a resistance movement that is resisting an occupation in the country that your government calls Israel. We are not adventurers. We are not war lovers. Whether there is a conflict between us depends on how America acts after the war.

"It's not up to us," he adds. "The ball is in your court."

So, effectively they are saying they are not opposed to the war as long as we don't screw it all up? Hands up, who foresaw the day when Hezbollah would come out closer to our position that Germany, France and Belgium?
