"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

President Hamid Karzai will attempt to seize the initiative in Afghanistan (news - web sites)'s lawless provinces this week by sacking regional officials defying his rule, government officials said on Monday.
Karzai plans to target civil, military and police officials in several key provinces from governor downwards, said one official, who did not want to be identified.
"The government will issue a statement in this regard in the near future. The aim is to improve working procedures and create good co-ordination between the centre and the provinces," a second official said.
