"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 senior Russian diplomat said Monday that the search for weapons of mass destruction in Iraq shouldn't go on indefinitely, the Interfax news agency reported.

"Russia considers Iraq's disarmament dossier to be an open question and it's necessary to reach agreement on how to close it," Deputy Foreign Minister Yuri Fedotov was quoted as saying.

The process "must not be drawn out indefinitely," he said.

And then he goes on, with what I assume must be a straight face:

"The situation in Iraq has changed drastically, therefor we believe it is possible to clear up the Iraqi disarmament dossier very quickly," Fedotov was quoted by Interfax as saying.

Is that so. Then I am sure you can easily now account for all of the missing nuclear material and weapons that were left over from the Soviet Union days, right? I mean, the situation has 'changed drastically' since then, right?
