"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

Another good example of howdisguting Saddam's rule is.

General Mustafa said that he did not expect the Iraqi army in Kirkuk to put up much resistance, but they were frightened to surrender.

He said: "They tell us that they will surrender if there is any kind of a fight, but they will not give up now because they fear there would be retaliation against their families."

The Iraqi army has taken other measures to prevent its soldiers defecting or going home. At Berdarasha north of Mosul, Ibrahim Ahmed, a local political leader, said: "We know that the Iraqi army confiscated radios and civilian clothes from their men last week." Kurdish radio stations yesterday started broadcasting in Arabic instructions on how Iraqi soldiers should surrender.
