"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

Kuwait awards General Franks their second highest honor.

Kuwait’s emir yesterday honored Gen. Tommy Franks, head of the US Central Command, for his “distinguished” military duties, the state news agency KUNA reported.

Emir Sheikh Jaber Al-Ahmad Al-Sabah presented Franks, who is scheduled to retire early next month, with a medal “in appreciation for his distinctive services and sincerity in carrying out his duties,” KUNA said.

Franks, who led US forces in Iraq, was also honored for his “extensive military capabilities and distinguished military experience.” The meeting was attended by Crown Prince and Prime Minister Sheikh Saad Al-Abdullah Al-Sabah.
