"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

Wait, please remind me, who is brash, egotistical and self-serving?

"France is back!" Prime Minister Jean-Pierre Raffarin exclaimed after mass protests around the world last month against war with Iraq. "France is heard. She is being followed. She has confidence in herself. France is being what is expected of her: the bearer of the message of humanity."

Doesn't matter if we're right. Doesn't matter if the people backing us so ardently are a bunch of hard-line communist groups who heap praise on vile dictatroships. In fact we like tyrants, too. The people of Iraq? Well who needs them. As long as we can have our voice heard and have people follow France, then everything is spiffy, non?
