"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

In human history there has never been a military like ours. The fight is still on and the first shipments of food already on the way.

The United States is sending 200,000 tons of wheat and rice to Iraq, Agriculture Secretary Ann Veneman said Thursday.

"President Bush has assured the people of Iraq that they will have the food and medicine they need," she said.

The first wheat and rice shipment will go next week, and more will be sent over the next several weeks. The government has another 400,000 tons ready to be shipped if needed, she said.
