"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

Iraqi state television said President Saddam Hussein chaired a meeting of his top officials on Saturday and said he was satisfied with the performance of Iraqi soldiers facing a U.S. and British invasion.
"The president expressed his satisfaction at the performance of the Iraqi army and members of the Baath Party and Iraqi tribes," the television said, without showing pictures of the reported meeting.
It said Saddam's second son Qusay, Vice President Taha Yassin Ramadan, Deputy Prime Minister Tareq Aziz, Information Minister Mohammed Saeed al-Sahaf and Defense Minister General Sultan Hashim Ahmed attended the meeting.
All these people who you couldn't keep off TV for years are just fine but...well...we can't give you any new footage of them. But rest assured we'll get you footage any day now. It now appears Iraq is being run by the Information Minister and all he knows how to do is lie.
