"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

Some new citizens get it.

In two mass ceremonies in Los Angeles today, some 75-hundred immigrants became U-S citizens, as their new country fights in Iraq.

Nearly two dozen of those who took the oath are already in the U-S military. One Marine is from France. He says people there and in America should stop bashing each other and remember they have a long history of working together.

One Iraqi man wondered why it took the U-S so long to go after Saddam Hussein. Another new citizen, from Iran, said the government there is just as bad, and that both countries' rulers are a threat to "the whole world."

An Egyptian man said war is terrible, but if the U-S has to be at war in Iraq to keep this country safe, then so be it.
