"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

This made me laugh out loud.

Foreign Minister Dominique de Villepin denied Paris wanted a new clash in the U.N. Security Council with Washington after its opposition to the Iraq war, but said the current U.S. draft resolution was merely a ''starting point'' in negotiations.

''I believe we need more transparency and information on Iraq,'' he told French RTL radio. ''That is why we are asking for international controls...And who better than the United Nations to perform this task?''

Oh yes, that paragon of transparency. If we want some prostitution rings and skimming of profits and entrenched bureaucracy and kickbacks and using food aid to bribe Iraqis, by all means the UN is your one stop shop. But transparancy?
