"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

Denmark will commit troops.

According to Lykketoft and other Social Democratic leaders, the government has decided to send a submarine, the Saelen, a corvette, the Olfert Fischer and a corps of elite soldiers into any conflict with Iraq.

"The time has come to take a stance," Rasmussen said separately, in a statement released after US President George W Bush gave Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein until Thursday to leave the country or face war.

"The international community has demanded for 12 years that Saddam Hussein give up his weapons of mass destruction, but Saddam Hussein has not cooperated (in this respect)," he said.

"It is unacceptable to make a mockery of the international community's authority," he said.
