"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

Another Exile.

"It is a mixed feeling - of jubilation at the fall of Saddam but at the same time we have a bit of sorrow because a lot of civilians have died.

"I personally have a friend of mine who has lost 10 members of his family, including his mother, during the war.

"What do you say to someone who has suffered that?

"I think that a lot of the civilian deaths were avoidable, but then it isn't me sitting in the tank.

"But we hope the future will be bright for the Iraqi people and especially for those who have been suffering for a long time under this evil dictatorship."

I like how the BBC can't even put the word jubilation in the title without scare quotes. They can't even allow the feelings of the people most affected by the fall of Saddam to be untarnished by their slant.
