"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 Bosnian politician resigned after it came to light that he has been supplying Saddam.

International investigators discovered that Mirko Sarovic, a Bosnian Serb and chairman of the country's three-member presidency, knew about and failed to block the export of refurbished military aircraft engines by the state-owned Bosnian company Orao.

The sale violated the United Nation's embargo on arms exports to Iraq put in place in 1991 after Gulf War I.

Dragan Mikerevic, prime minister of the Bosnian Serb ministate, said Sarovic's resignation was necessary "because of the violation of the UN Security Council resolution concerning Iraq."
