"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

Isn't Mugabe swell?

The Zimbabwean government has refused burial for a Zimbabwean soldier shot dead while fighting with the British army in Iraq.

Christopher Muzvuru, 21, served as a private in the Irish Guards, after joining the British army in 2001. He died this month in combat in Basra.

He was vilified and branded"a mercenary", "a buffalo soldier" and "a sellout" by President Robert Mugabe's regime, while the Daily Mirror said he should be buried in Britain, "the country he chose to die for".
