"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

Apparently being a Nobel Laureate doesn't preclude one from being an idiot.

Poet laureate Andrew Motion has written an anti-war verse about historic places in Iraq whose past glories have become eclipsed by war and death.

The poem, called Regime Change, is "violently opposed to the war", Motion said.

Places like Babylon, Eden and Baghdad are now associated with suffering rather than their "terrific cultural achievements", the poem says.

As opposed to the glory and enlightenment that has cloaked the country under Saddam.
