"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

John Negroponte's letter informing Kofi of the beginning of military action.

Iraq repeatedly has refused, over a protracted period of time, to
respond to diplomatic overtures, economic sanctions, and other
peaceful means designed to help bring about Iraqi compliance with its
obligations to disarm and to permit full inspection of its WMD and
related programs. The actions that coalition forces are undertaking
are an appropriate response. They are necessary steps to defend the
United States and the international community from the threat posed by
Iraq and to restore international peace and security in the area.
Further delay would simply allow Iraq to continue its unlawful and
threatening conduct.

It is the Government of Iraq that bears full responsibility for the
serious consequences of its defiance of the Council's decisions. I
would be grateful if you could circulate the text of this letter as a
document of the Security Council.
