Voice from the Commonwealth Commentary, World Views and Occasional Rants from a small 'l' libertarian in Massachussetts
"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

"A smart fellow...I do like, recommend and learn from Barbera's blog." -Roger L. Simon
"Your blog is bullshit"- anonymous angry French reader.
"We are here so that an attack might not take place. The fact that this is a risky place actually strengthens my determination to be here. The power plant is a humanitarian target, because it produces electricity for the population, for hospitals, and water purification plants". Virolainen says.
"I didn't come here to become a martyr. If necessary I am ready to leave this building. The plant has a bomb shelter where we can also go."
So he is using his life to try and protect this building. But not really. A well thought out position
"When people shout slogans in favour of Saddam Hussein, they are actually shouting for Iraq. I do not see this country as a police state. The Iraqi people really are free", Virolainen ponders.
"One thing that has become quite clear to me is that Iraq cannot be occupied. To do so it would be necessary to kill every citizen, because everyone here wants to defend this country to the last."
Repeat that line back to him when the people of Baghdad are cheering in the streets to see liberating forces move in.
