"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 one.

A supected mass grave of dissidents killed in Saddam Hussein's suppression of the 1991 uprising in southern Iraq has been unearthed in a Basra schoolyard.

Relatives rented a pneumatic drill to break through the layer of concrete that had been laid down over the former playing field at the al-Makdad school in the centre of the southern capital.

The relatives started digging after being tipped off by a lecturer at Basra university that he had seen military intelligence officers dumping bodies in the yard following the rebellion that followed the 1991 Gulf war.

"Inspections Work! Screw the Iraqi people!"
