"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

Hm. How about Jean Chretien?

Chretien, who said on Tuesday that an attack on Iraq would be unjustified, did not criticize Washington on Thursday and said he hoped the war would be short with a minimum of casualties.

"At this point I think there is no use debating the reasons why some people think war is necessary and some people think it is not. We should not say anything that would comfort Saddam Hussein," he told reporters.

A government official said Chretien was "asking people to cool down the rhetoric" and added: "That is the time not to step up any personal attack."
