"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

A very good point made inside this story over at the Asia Times about how quiet the Arab world is in the face of a coming war.

Hezbollah leader Sheikh Hassan Nasrullah openly regretted that in "the greatest Muslim demonstration, the reunion of 2 million Muslims in Mecca", there were no calls against war.

The hajj passed with so little uproar that it didn't even occur to me. Here were millions of extremely faithful Muslims gathering together and there were no massive calls to oppose a war to oust Saddam.
