"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

Australian SAS forces have been active in the theater.

Australian SAS soldiers have fought, killed and injured Iraqi forces leading the coalition thrust into the country.

The Australian Commander in the Middle East, Brigadier Maurie McNarn, says the SAS are deep inside Iraq.

Brigadier McNarn says Australian SAS soldiers are at the forefront of operations in Iraq, and very much in harm's way.

"There have been a number of contacts since they've gone in there - they have in some cases killed Iraqi military," he said.

"In one case they had a contact going in, they injured a number, the rest either dropped their weapons or ran away.

"They stopped, the medics treated the Iraqis, and they moved on."
