"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

Japan is signaling that it will support a new resolution in the UNSC.

Japan will probably back a new resolution on Iraq that the United States and Britain are planning to submit to the U.N. Security Council, a senior Foreign Ministry official said Monday.

"If the resolution says what Mr. Powell has said, Japan will show support," the official said on condition of anonymity.

Japan will then step up its efforts to persuade members of the U.N. Security Council to support the resolution, especially nonpermanent members of the council that benefit from official development assistance from Tokyo, he said.

Among the 15 members of the U.N. Security Council, Japan offered ODA to nine countries -- including Chile, Mexico and Pakistan -- in 2000.
