"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

More mass graves and a possible lead on still missing Kuwaitis.

Two eyewitnesses from the village of Salman Pak said they had seen 115 corpses stacked in piles here April 10, all of them men with their hands tied behind their backs who had been shot in the back of the head. In attempts to exhume bodies Saturday and Sunday, Iraqis retrieved the remains of eight victims, none of whom, however, appeared to have died recently.

Meanwhile, the remains of a Kuwaiti man missing since Iraq's occupation of Kuwait 12 years ago have been discovered at a mass grave near the southern Iraqi city of Samawah, Kuwaiti officials said in Kuwait City.

Kuwaiti Cabinet Affairs Minister Mohammed Sharar said evidence suggests the man was shot sometime between 1991 and 1992.

He was identified by DNA as Saad Meshaal Aswad al-Anzi, one of hundreds of Kuwaitis whose fate has been in question since they were detained by Iraqi troops during the 1990 invasion that led to the first Gulf War.
