"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

Last December German arms dealers were trying to sell missile componenets to Iraq.

A spokesman for the prosecutor's office in the western town of Bielefeld said the men had admitted trying to sell the missile parts to Iraq in breach of a United Nations embargo and German export regulations.

The two accused had planned to get some of the components produced in Germany and to deliver them to Iraq, ARD said in a statement.

One of the men had admitted that a blueprint confiscated by police had been the design of a missile guidance system, ARD said, citing Baade.

The case follows the conviction in January of a German businessman who was sentenced to five years and three months in prison for exporting weapons material to Iraq in 1999.
