"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

And in case you somehow forgot. Saddam murdered a lot of Iraqis.

U.S. military in Iraq say its troops have uncovered a mass grave near the northern city of Mosul where as many as 400 people, probably Kurds, may be buried.

A military statement said about 25 human remains -- all women and children with bullet holes through the skull -- were uncovered in a valley at al-Hatra town, some 300 km (170 miles) north of Baghdad.

Residents estimate that between 200 and 400 people could be buried there, the statement said, adding the find had been made by the 101st Airborne Division and that Army pathologists had arrived on site on Monday.

"It is believed the people were Kurdish," it added. "Two pieces of clothing were found at approximately six-feet (metres) deep."
