"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

And some real Army humour from the Helmand Blog:
"Defence Secretary Bob Ainsworth recently made a whistlestop visit to Helmand. One of his aides made the crass mistake of complaining about the heat. This invited a heartfelt put-down from a nearby soldier: 'OK, next time you lot want to invade a country choose one that's ****ing cooler.' "
