"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

Talk about putting yourself in a corner. Russia has said they will not absatin and they will not vote for anything that may lead to war.

Russia will not abstain when the United Nations Security Council votes on authorizing war with Iraq, and might be prepared to use its veto, Foreign Minister Igor Ivanov said Tuesday.

Ivanov, in London for talks with his British counterpart, Jack Straw, said Russia "will not support any decision that would directly or indirectly open the way to war with Iraq.

"Abstaining is not a position Russia can take. We have to have a clear position, and we are for a political solution," Ivanov said, through a translator, on BBC World Service radio.
