"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

Someone in the neighborhood admittedly building nukes and constantly threatening war while spying on you and abducting your citizens? Jaques has the solution. Be patient.

French President Jacques Chirac on Monday advised Japan to be patient in dealing with North Korea, saying Japan should wait for changes to take place inside North Korea instead of putting pressure from the outside.

Former Japanese Prime Minister Ryutaro Hashimoto told reporters that Chirac offered this advice at an informal meeting.

Chirac told Hashimoto that while did not have enough information to comment on North Korean Kim Jong Il, he feels that a dictatorship cannot last forever and cited the collapse of East Germany in 1989 by way of example.

Yeah, there's a good comparison.
