To the PEOPLE of Iraq
Edmund Burke: All that is necessary for evil to succeed is that good men do nothing.
Albert Einstein: The world is a dangerous place, not because of those who do evil, but because of those who look on and do nothing.
Noam Chomsky: The most effective way to restrict democracy is to transfer decision-making from the public arena to unaccountable institutions: kings and princes, priestly castes, military juntas, party dictatorships, or modern corporations.
Frederick Douglass: Those who profess to favor freedom and yet depreciate agitation, are people who want crops without ploughing the ground; they want rain without thunder and lightning; they want the ocean without the roar of its many waters. The struggle may be a moral one, or it may be a physical one, or it may be both. But it must be a struggle. Power concedes nothing without a demand; it never has and it never will.
Samuel Adams: If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude greater than the animating contest for freedom, go home from us in peace. We seek not your counsel, nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you; and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.
Yoda: Do, or do not. There is no try.
